Behemoth is such an amazing book. I love how Scott Westerfeld has taken a historical event and changed it into something completely different, but so similar at the same time.

The Darwinists and the Clanker ideas are really clever. I loved how that was the part of the war, and it made the two sides much more different. You would think that fabricated creatures would be frowned upon by the English who created them. But the idea of this is amazing, and much more useful than machines that need oil and parts to run. It may go against the laws of nature, but it also makes nature more powerful. This is such an awesome and brilliant concept that may be key to the future, as fabrication is starting to happen.

I think my favorite character is Deryn. I love how she risked her neck to do what she loved most, flying. She is different to other girls at that time, which made her even more amazing. I loved how Lilit (I think that is how you spell it) liked her, and I laughed at the part where she kissed her.

I loved this book, and everyone who reads this would understand why, it is so good. Please read it if you want to live. I cannot wait for Tuesday when I can borrow the next one!
