Goliath is the final book in Westerfeld’s steampunk Leviathan trilogy. Illustrations by Keith Thompson make it all the more steampunk-fantastic. Recommended to everyone aged 10-247. The entire trilogy was a fun, mostly light adventure story with likeable characters and a good dose of humor. This series worked very well for me as reading material while traveling for a business conference. I was very tired for most of the week due to a not-ideal travel schedule combined with a time zone change, and this was entertaining without being too demanding.

Leviathan series from Scott Westerfeld is one of the most imaginative reworkings of history in literature. The characters, including the great ship itself, are drawn in minute detail, so much so that one can not only see them, but smell them as well. The inventions of Darwinist and Clanker embellishing the differences between the British and German allies of the time are brilliant, deeply rooted in the personality of the opposing sides while maintaining a balance of empathy for both. Alan Cummings reading of this series shows the diversity of his talents, his mastery of accents and his unparalleled depth of character interpretation. He treats the story as if it were made of music, and he has an entire symphony at his disposal.

Completely splendid. I was a little worried about how this would end. I've loved the first two books, and after the last Harry Potter book ended a series I loved with a book I can barely tolerate, I'm leery of getting my hopes up too high. Even another of Westerfeld's trilogies, Midnighters, ended on what I thought of as kind of a bittersweet note, and I don't like bittersweet. With Midnighters, I wanted to see more because I wasn't satisfied with the ending. But with this book, I was pleased to be completely satisfied with how it ended, both the love story aspect and the rest of the plot. I'd still love to see more, of course. The story ends in such a way that the lives of Alek and Deryn definitely seem worth reading about, though as a trilogy called 'Leviathan', it's a definite ending. I would love to see more of this story. Perhaps he'll feel like writing another trilogy about Alek and Deryn, maybe picking it up during World War II, if it even happens in this world. I doubt he'll write more in this world, but if he does, I'll be eager to read it. It's been an amazing story, and a rare one in that my favorite characters are actually the main characters (usually I find myself preferring one or more of the side characters). This series is definitely one I would recommend to anyone who'll listen.

As far as the reading (since I listened to the audiobook), that is also very well done. Alan Cumming is quite talented, and being able to hear all the various accents and languages that pop up throughout the story helps bring them to live and set the stage better than just reading the words. My only complaint is the way he reads Americans. His accent is simply ridiculous, and all the Americans, male and female, sound exactly the same. I guess it wouldn't have bothered me so much if it was just the reporter who sounded so farcical, but every American we meet had the same ludicrous accent. One small annoyance I had with an otherwise outstanding performance.

To sum up, if you haven't read this series, do so (in order, of course), and if you've read the previous two and are wondering if this book gives a satisfying ending, yes, it really does (though it also gives the sense that the story goes on, but without failing to resolve any of the major storylines).

Is the final stretch of their adventure on the Leviathan and things are getting seriously complicated for Deryn and Alek. A simple rescue mission turns into a trip around the world escorting the infamous scientist Nicola Tesla, who may have the ultimate weapon for putting a stop to the war but at a terrible cost. Alek has finally figured out Deryn's secret and feels betrayed, confused. How can his feelings for Dylan Sharp translate to Deryn Sharp? But there's no time to think about this! With secrets revealed, old allies appearing, terrible inventions and incoming old enemies, Goliath makes for one electrifying finale to Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan trilogy!

Deryn and Alek have come a long, long way since they first met in the freezing glacier where the Leviathan crash landed. They've kept each other's secret, helped each other, and saved each other countless of times. Deryn mostly does the rescuing, but now the tables are sort of turned now with Deryn having to be rescued a couple of times by Alek. It really comes in handy having someone know her secret. I've really enjoyed seeing these two characters grow through the series, and in Goliath they have to make some serious decisions. Will Alek pursue his throne, and leave Deryn behind? Will Deryn continue as a middy on the airship Leviathan and continue risking being discovered?

This trilogy has been amazing from the very beginning. I'll never forget the beasties, especially the Leviathan, Tazza, and Bovril, the perspicacious loris. The Clanker machines were also incredible especially thanks to Keith Thompson and his breathtaking illustrations. The original vocabulary also made for a fun read. I would so use those curse words every single day, because barking spiders this has seriously been one of the best trilogies I've ever read. Goliath brought old allies and contraptions, but also new ones like Russian fighting bears, Japanesse Kappas, a Herculean, underwater fiber system, manta airships, and many more that just made me wish this series was longer! I'm extremely sad that it ended, and I hate leaving this world and these characters behind. I'll definitely come back to re-read this in the future.

I've been saying it all along, and I'll say it again... This is steampunk at its best!!!
