I enjoyed this book as I thought the characters were well developed and the plot was very strong. My favourite character is Nova as she is a human android which are very common in the dystopian future this book is set in. I also liked Zen Starling's roguish thief character and I thought that the idea of trains passing through gates to travel through worlds ( hence the book's name, Railhead).
One of my favourite things about this book was the fact that the author ( Philip Reeve ) constantly introduces new characters and keeps the book consistently flowing as the characters never linger for too long in one place. I also admire the fact that there is a constant sense of mystery in the book. For example, Zen is aided near the start by a mysterious woman who's identity was later revealed later on in the book.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes science fiction and adventure.
