I personally think that railhead is one of the best books I have read in ages. It is a science fiction novel set in the future which can be a very deadly and threatening place to be living in. Zen Starling is an alluring character and I enjoyed reading the whole story which was based around him. At first the novel didn’t really hook me in and I found it extremely boring due to the complexity of the storyline and the concept of the k-gates, k-bahns, locos, rays etc. But after a few chapters I got intrigued and managed to read the whole book pondering about each chapter. If you put the book down for a long period of time, you will be completely lost within the book. The story shows human rights by it having the moral: you can be anyone. This is shown because Zen starling was actually meant to be part of a very royal family until his ‘mother’ stole him and they had been on the run ever since. Overall, out of 5, the book will be rated 4.5 by me.
