railhead review by mrs hosey

Thank you, Mrs H! – Admin

Railhead was an intriguing idea about our future exploring questions around how our use of the internet could develop and what might happen with artificial intelligence alongside a story of a boy working out his views of right and wrong.

I enjoyed in particular the idea of trains being intelligent beings – it reminded me of Iain M Banks Culture novels which have space ships that are beings themselves.

Railhead had a good mix of action and mystery with a couple of surprises along the way. If you like Science Fiction then I would recommend this book.

8/10
