Railhead is AMAZING! It is a great book to read, anytime, anywhere. And although it's a bit slow at the beginning, the end will get you screaming for the sequel.

It tells the story of a thief named Zen, who is hired by a mysterious man and his Motorik to do his most daring theft yet...

The universe the characters live in is futuristic and imaginative, and it makes you think about what the world will be like in the future, and the idea of living trains and gates that will take you across the universe is exciting and interesting.

The personalities and characteristics of the characters are shown well as the story goes on, as Philip Reeve shows how human Nova actually is, how much Malik wanted to finish the job, how much Raven wanted to make a difference, how much the guardians wanted their secrets to themselves and how much Zen wanted to prove himself.

This book is hard to put down and the amount of description helps you imagine that universe and what Zen and Nova go through. Flex's fate will break your heart, and the final sentences will make you want to read the sequel. When I read this, I experienced the feeling of reading a great book that I will love for a long time and that I will be able to read over and over without getting bored.
