Railhead is a fast action sci-fi thriller and adventure story! I absolutely loved it! It is set in the future where there are all sorts of advanced technology: people can travel into many different planets throughout space in trains that travel at the speed of light, there are robots (called Motorik's) that are very much like humans apart from their appearances, there is the Web which is a virtual existence where people can connect to lots of unique things and devices with only a pair of headsets, and much, much more!
Right from the start I was totally gripped and drank in every bit of information there was! I loved the fact that Philip Reeve came up with all these different vocabulary to describe all the new technology, and I found the whole concept of the book very creative! He has a very imaginative mind!
There were a few places where a got a bit confused about what was happening and had to read some of them over again because they had moved on a little bit too fast, but apart from that, I thought it was a fantastic book! It is a very imaginative storyline, very gripping and I wouldn't be surprised if it won the Carnegie Medal!
