About the Book
It is an interesting book on post-apocalyptic transport. To be honest, the book is not so childish, because the problems, which the main heroes and their companions meet, are not childish at all, the problems that many people face when moving from childhood to adulthood – both love and human traits like the thirst for power, revenge , search for a line between good and evil.
Unfortunately, the author of the book weakly describes the technical component of his invented machine-cities and has little idea how such huge machines can move at a speed of, for example, 100 km p/h and on caterpillars. But at the same time very well describes everything related to people, their relationships, And ways to survive in this harsh world. The book has everything: adventures, the dark side of the human soul, as well as love and devotion in achieving the goal.
I liked the book, but I do not have enough technical details of the arrangement of these machines – in fact, the most interesting one. That’s why the book turned out to be rather short but from that no less interesting.
Some believe that the author justly proved the existence of his fantastic cities, but it is not so because greed and cruelty gave birth to this world in which cities had to come on wheels and caterpillars and they almost did not destroy the new world.
The movie Mortal Engines trailer is not available. It will come closer to the movie release.
Many centuries after the fantastic Sixty-Minute War, the Traction Era came. Cities pulled themselves out of the ground and stood on the wheels. The world lives according to the next laws: cities are circling the Hunting Ground and devouring each other. And when there is very little production, the moving metropolis of London resorts to the monstrous weapons of the Ancients. With its help, it intends to destroy the city of the Opponent’s League movement, and then get to the Sun, and the stars.
The heroes of the novel are on the Open territory, then fall on the pirate platform, then in the Air Harbor, then on the Shield Wall, but both – each for its own reason – are eager to return to London.
