Railhead is a futurisitic style novel that keeps you on your toes till the very end. This book kept me thoroughly entertained and I therefore completed it within a day.

The first few chapters are quite heavy to read; this is due to the adjusting it takes to fully immerse yourself into this technological world, that Phillip Reeve somehow seems to make a reality. Nevertheless, clarity shines through and from then on, I was completely hooked.

The story line has been thoughtfully placed together. Every chapter contained such a large amount of detail that I sometimes found myself thinking that the story was real.

The characters seem to come alive and I couldn't help but cheer on Zen in his adventures.

This is the first book I have read by Phillip Reeve and I look forward to this being the first of many.

Throughout the story, I picked up on a few minor typos. These however did not affect the flow of the story nor ruin this extremely positive experience.

I will definitely recommend this novel to readers 12 and above.
