Goliath (Leviathan) (The Leviathan Trilogy) Reviews
Leviathan series from Scott Westerfeld is one of the most imaginative reworkings of history in literature. The characters, including the great ship itself, are drawn in minute detail, so much so that one can not only see them, but smell them as well. The inventions of Darwinist and Clanker embellishing the differences between the British and German allies of the time are brilliant, deeply rooted in the personality of the opposing sides while maintaining a balance of empathy for both. Alan Cummings reading of this series shows the diversity of his talents, his mastery of accents and his unparalleled depth of character interpretation. He treats the story as if it were made of music, and he has an entire symphony at his disposal.
Completely splendid. I was a little worried about how this would end. I've loved the first two books, and after the last Harry Potter book ended a series I loved with a book I can barely tolerate, I'm leery of getting my hopes up too high. Even another of Westerfeld's trilogies, Midnighters, ended on what I thought of as kind of a bittersweet note, and I don't like bittersweet. With Midnighters, I wanted to see more because I wasn't satisfied with the ending. But with this book, I was pleased to be completely satisfied with how it ended, both the love story aspect and the rest of the plot. I'd still love to see more, of course. The story ends in such a way that the lives of Alek and Deryn definitely seem worth reading about, though as a trilogy called 'Leviathan', it's a definite ending. I would love to see more of this story. Perhaps he'll feel like writing another trilogy about Alek and Deryn, maybe picking it up during World War II, if it even happens in this world. I doubt he'll write more in this world, but if he does, I'll be eager to read it. It's been an amazing story, and a rare one in that my favorite characters are actually the main characters (usually I find myself preferring one or more of the side characters). This series is definitely one I would recommend to anyone who'll listen.
Is the final stretch of their adventure on the Leviathan and things are getting seriously complicated for Deryn and Alek. A simple rescue mission turns into a trip around the world escorting the infamous scientist Nicola Tesla, who may have the ultimate weapon for putting a stop to the war but at a terrible cost. Alek has finally figured out Deryn's secret and feels betrayed, confused. How can his feelings for Dylan Sharp translate to Deryn Sharp? But there's no time to think about this! With secrets revealed, old allies appearing, terrible inventions and incoming old enemies, Goliath makes for one electrifying finale to Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan trilogy!
