Railhead

Well... What a surprise! This was my first book for the Carnegie reading this year, as i hadn't read any of the books on the short list (a first!). Anyway, l chose this book first to get it over with, as from the blurb, it was the book I was least looking forward to reading.
Wow! I am happy to report l was very mistaken! Loved it!
It focuses on a 'Railhead' called Zen, a petty thief, a loner, a bit of a loser really. He meets Raven and Nova and his life changes beyond recognition.
There are so many twists and turns it kept me engaged throughout.
Talking bugs, talking trains and of course, the wonderful wire dollies, all add up and make a fantastic sci-fi story.
Brilliant!
