Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a fantastic story! It is unlike any story I have ever read. It is a steampunk novel. It is an exciting adventure. I listened to the audio, which I would actually recommend! This is my first experience reading a Scott Westerfeld book and he does an unbelievable job of making two very different characters from two very different upbringings and worlds. The characters are both so lovable in their own way and the audio voice amplified that even more. There are many little funny parts where the two characters are interacting and are so different. Alec is so sweet and innocent and really sees the world in black and white and I just love him so much that I want to reach through the book and give him a big bear hug! Deryn who is pretending to be a boy so that she can be in the royal army is so daring and ballsy and she says exactly what is on her mind that I just wanted to jump through the book and be her BFF!
I am sooooo glad I found this book and I can't wait until I get my hands book two!
I think all ages would enjoy this book. If you enjoy fast paced adventure, steampunk, humor, mystery and suspense, and history check this book out!
