dang if this is as good as the first book i cant wait to read

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.
