Behemoth, by Scott Westerfeld

behemothFor some reason, it took me a really long time to get into this book. Normally I slip right into Westerfeld’s worlds, but Behemoth was either really slow to start, or I was just not in the right mood to read it. It took me over a week to read the first 300 or so pages. After that point, though, I started to get invested with the characters again. I think this was particularly due to the little beastie that latches to Alek (no spoilers). The constant repetition of “Mr. Sharp” kept cracking me up. I had a lot of fun reading that miniature character! By the last hundred pages, I didn’t want to put the book down, so I’m glad I persevered. While I didn’t enjoy Behemoth as much as Leviathan, I did think it was worth reading in the end.
