Book 3 from the 2014 Booklist: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Finished: January 22, 2014
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

This was a book suggestion from our favorite book junkie, RO!!
It’s the first in a trilogy that I admit was better than I expected!

I was always intrigued with the phrases that RO would throw out randomly on her Twitter and Facebook.

“Barking Spiders” or “Stupid clankers.” Just to name a couple. 🙂

When she even went as far as to change her name on Facebook once to Darren Sharp, that is when I had to ask what series or book had her so enthralled that she could be so influenced.

That would be this series, the Leviathan trilogy by Scott Westerfeld.
I had known for some time that Scott Westerfeld is like her most favorite author ever, but I never thought I would read any of his stuff since he’s a young adult writer, and I am always all about the dark, gloomy, and murder kinds of books. haha

But I gave it a shot because the first one showed up in another Audible sale.

Then Taylor and I were hooked, just like RO. Having to follow Darren Sharp, the Perspicacious loris, Alec and the rest of the crew.

The eggs always fascinated me, what could the Darwinists be hatching? What kind of machinery would the clankers come up with next?

And what about Constantinople, would that be the key to everything?

It’s a young adult story, but it’s a fun one… even for those of us who are old souls and a little bit of a curmudgeon.

Thanks RO!!

TaTa for Now,
Amanda Ellen
