14) Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve
I have recently (well, not so recently, but you know how it is) joined a book club, and I find myself reading much more than I have been doing in recent times, which is undoubtedly an encouraging development. Mortal Engines is one of the two books we are reading this month – alongside The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin – and I decided to read it first. So, before I jump into spoilers, let me just say I liked the novel and would recommend it.
( Spoilers ahoy! )
I’ve labelled this as my third review, but not because it’s the third book I’ve read this year. I want to try to get into the habit of posting at least something about the books I’ve read on my LJ, and so I’m hoping to put up some thoughts on both Our Lady of Darkness by Fritz Leiber and Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia, which were the last two novels I completed.
