    Review of 'Mortal Engines' by Philip Reeves.

    I have recently finished reading the aforementioned book, and found the overall flow of the writing to be efficient and easy to follow. The characters were beautifully described, and my opinion of them kept changing after every chapter. This book was beautifully written, and I couldn't put it down. Even when I needed to sleep, I found myself still reading two chapters later.

    The story is set in a dystopian future, and has been vividly imagined and perfectly written. There is a clear reason for writing this story, and a very good reason for wanting to read it.

    If there was one (slightly) disappointing thing about this book, it's the ending. I didn't want it to end, and especially not in the way it did. I honestly believe that Philip Reeve could have got a few more chapters out of it, and the ending ended up being ever so slightly anticlimactic.

    Overall, I give this book 4.5 stars out of 5.

    4.5/5
