Hi! So far I'm not really loving the book, but I'm not really in to it yet. I like Deryn so far. But Alek annoys me.
How far are you into the book?
I loved this book. The art was wonderful, and the story was a great introduction to alternative historical fiction. I liked both of the main characters well enough, but the real fun was how Westerfeld reimagined WWI with Clankers and Darwinian monsters. Delightful! I'm of course hoping for hinted romance later in the series. For now, I just want to learn more about the machines and the beasts!
Iris,Have you read other Westerfeld? If so how does this compare?
I'm on page 50, and I'm a little more excited then I was, but I don't read many books like this, so it's hard for me to catch on. The picture's definetely help me because I wouldn't be able to picture it as well!
