Railhead is a brilliantly humorous and richly imagined book set thousands of years from now all over the universe. I would recommend it to anyone over 6 years old as I think that they would still be able to grasp the plot.
Moons and worlds all connected with k-gates. These gates are travelled through by trains and controlled by the Guardians; almost super human deities created by programmers on "Old Earth" which is based on current times.
The book really makes you wonder what life will be like in the future; showing you possibilities of new life forms and technologies that might become the most common place of object that we wouldn't give a second thought to.
My only criticism of Railhead is that the crazy concepts it introduces aren't fully explained and so you can't make a precise picture in your mind which some people might like but I personally don't.
I hope my review of this over all wonderful book help you in search for a great new book. Thank you.
