This was an amazing book! I really liked "Leviathan", but I liked "Behemoth even better. I really got attached to the characters. I like this book better because of the fast plot line, so the book moves faster. Also, the tension between all the characters is great. All these things combined, and more, kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. I also like the alternate history Scott Westerfeld put into this book, and some of the history parts are true, such as the locals of the city do call Constantinople "Istanbul". I highly recommend this book!

Possibly my favorite book of all time. : ) Adventure, fabricated beasties, a girl disguised as a boy- what more could you want?

Doesn't quite live up to the first book but it is really close. Really makes you hate you're totally normal and bland life actually. Really, who wouldn't like a robot or fabricated animals?

This is an awesome book

i bet wonderland is taking names from this series! if they open a roller coaster called Goliath.... but a place in quebec has!!!!

A great sequel to Leviathan! The first book was a little better considering the fact that it took me a little longer to get into it. I can't wait to read Goliath!

Love it! i side my self with Clankers however. i'm a mecha Neerd so i like robots. but i could sunnugle up to a bistie if i had to.

I love this series like WHOA! The history geek in me revels in the alternate universe that Westerfeld has created occuring during World War I with the Darwinists (Allied Powers) versus the Clankers (Axis Powers). Deryn/Dylan continues to be an amazing character, although in Behemoth we get a lot more development of Alek's character. He's definitely growing into himself, gaining more confidence and assuming a more commanding attitude. New characters provide some twists and turns both humorous and tragic. Also, Kevin Thompson's illustrations are so incredibly beautiful and really bring alive this series, every time I came upon one my eyes perked up, studying the detailed art and making sighs of appreciation. So much emotion is felt through the pictures, especially the full two page spread of the Behemoth, it literally took my breath away, frightening and awesome at the same time. Big secrets yet to be revealed, so I eagerly anticipate reading Goliath the third and last volume in this series which was just released!

"It's almost like...I'm in love."
"What!"
"I know it's silly, but if things were different..."
"But...have you guessed already? Am I that obvious? What if... things were different. Urgh! What are you saying?"
"I think...I'm in love with your ship."
"With the Leviathan????"

The only sound from the birdcage was Bovril's maniacal laughter.
