Leviathan è una trilogia steampunk che non solo è riuscita a colpirmi, ma che ha saputo catturarmi completamente.

Prima stella per l'originalità: premesso che è il primo libro di questo genere che leggo, l'idea di ambientare il romanzo durante una prima guerra mondiale riletta in versione steampunk è resa ancor più interessante dalla creazione delle due fazioni contrapposte, i Darwinisti e i Cigolanti:

Leviathan è una storia imperniata tanto sui futuri possibili quanto sui passati alternativi. Gua

3,67. Due stelle di cuore vanno a Scott (YOURETHEBESTEST,LOVE), una va ad Alek e Deryn, i protagonisti di questa storia, e quei decimi allo Steampunk e a chi gli ha dato origine (e ad Eraclito, la guerra è davvero il padre di tutte le cose).

La trilogia di Leviathan, pubblicata per intero in un unico libro dalla casa editrice Einaudi, per l’Italia, pressappoco nel 2012, è una trilogia di genere Steampunk - genere che mescola passato e futuro – molto interessante e molto ben strutturata, da Scott

Leviathan: 4.5/5
Behemoth: 4
Goliath: 4.5

Una delle trilogie più belle che io abbia mai letto, che mi ha stupita e costretta a rimanere letteralmente incollata alle pagine fino alla fine. Una trama fantastica e l'elemento steampunk sviluppato in modo magnifico, vengono supportati da personaggi a cui è impossibile non affezionarsi e da uno stile incalzante e allo stesso tempo descrittivo. Le illustrazioni conferiscono quel qualcosa in più che permette di comprendere a fondo la storia.

I was never able to finish this book.

This is a review of The Leviathan.

I think that this book would be good for anyone that enjoys a very suspenseful book. In this book There are two charecters that you see the view points of. It is set in another representation of the world tht would be set around the time between WWI and WWII. The two charecters are Prince Alek and Deryn Sharp. Alek is the son of the Monarch of Austria who is running from his granduncle the ruler of Germany that has mmurdered his family and started a world war.

In Scott Westerfeld's best work, the Leviathan Trilogy featuring Leviathan, Behemoth, and Goliath,we meet some great characters and go on an exciting adventure through alterna-history's WWI with both an Allied and an Axis perspective. The trilogy has elements of both steampunk and fantasy as well as threading in truths and actual people from history (Westerfeld includes an afterward correcting some of his alterna-history). It was a lively exciting read that I highly recommend to any reader. I gi ...more

SPOILER ALERT The Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld was a great book set in the time period of World War I. Alek's Austrian parents were murdered by Germans (who made it look like Serbia had done it) to start World War I. He goes to a hide out in a machine with four of his former tutors. Deryn, a girl dressed as a boy who wants to join the air force is saved by an enormous airship called the Leviathan when she is caught out in a storm on a "Darwinist" creation. She stays on the ship until it crash l ...more

Reviewed by Ji Ho Lee, Shekou International School at Shenzhen, Shekou.

Never in my wildest imagination would I believe that two simple characters, who are nothing but a blip in the war, would shift the tension of the battlefield. The novel Goliath, the conclusion to the Leviathan Trilogy, by Scott Westerfeld is a historical fiction which explores what could and might have happened in the vigorous battlefield of the First Great War. Alek, the prince, and Deryn, a simple commoner in an airship, w

These books can really only be review properly as a whole series. Not because the individual stories only lead up to the third one, but because each part are good on their own and build up to a really great payoff. It uses a dual-first person perspective of writing, bouncing back between the two main characters, Deryn Sharp, and Aleksander. Alek is a sheltered prince from Austria and Deryn is poor girl from England, and because of this unusual partnership, it keeps you wanting to turn the page. ...more

Aprovechando que es el centenario de la Gran Guerra y que me apetecía leer algo de SteamPunk me he apretado esta "trilogía" La trilogía esta orientada a lo que los anglosajones llaman jóvenes adultos así que para un adulto añejo como yo resulta algo flojita. La premisa de una Europa dividida entre Darwinistas (Triple Entente) cuya tecnología se basa en la manipulación genética y Maquinistas (Potencias Centrales) con una tecnología basada en los Transformers esta un "poquito" traida por los pelos ...more

Do the following ideas appeal to you: alternate World War I history; steampunk complete with German machinists (Clankers) v. British biologically engineered war animals (Darwinists), a girl disguised as a boy (to join the Royal Air Force, of course!), an Austrian Prince in exile, and travels to Austria, Switzerland, Istanbul, and Siberia? If so, The Leviathan Trilogy is the series for you!

Nicely illustrated with pictures of the various machines and animals, not to mention devious inventors, and

I listened to the audio versions of these books read by the Tony-award winning actor Alan Cumming, and there aren't words to express how much I enjoyed them. I loved Scott Westerfeld's characters and the world he constructed. (Barking spiders, but do I want a perspicacious loris of my own!!) But Alan Cumming's performance of the books is spectacular. He is a most amazing actor, and I feel lucky that he did this audio book gig.

Premessa: Questa trilogia è ambientata nel passato, prende spunto in maniera piuttosto accurata dagli eventi accaduti nella prima guerra mondiale, inserendo vicende e personaggi realmente esistiti. Nel contempo l'ambientazione retrò si amalgama con il futurismo, lo steampunk, arricchendo la storia di particolari fantascientifico-fantasiosi. Leviathan è quindi un mix ben riuscito di futuri possibili e passati alternativi. Abbiamo il mondo diviso in due fazioni: Cigolanti (che come mezzi da guerra ...more

La casa editrice Einaudi non ha ritenuto opportuno (e corretto verso i suoi lettori), pubblicare i tre volumi della saga Leviathan singolarmente e lo ammetto, io avevo perso le speranze di vedere “Behemoth” e “Goliath” tradotti in italiano, tanto che mi ero ripromessa di leggerli in inglese.
E invece, come un fulmine a ciel sereno, ecco che hanno deciso di pubblicare l’intera saga in un’unica trilogia! Il volume unico è scomodo, le pagine non sono più lucide e belle come in “Leviathan” e sopratt

Devo confessarvi che ho iniziato questa lettura con la paura di non farcela a finire la storia, un conto è affrontare un libro alla volta, un conto è ritrovarsi un libro di 1050 pagine da affrontare tutto d'un fiato! Il libro edito dalla casa editrice Einaudi è una trilogia e raccoglie in un unico libro i tre titoli Leviathan, Behemoth, e Goliath scritti da Scott Westerfeld.

Con Leviathan ci troviamo proprio all'inizio della Prima Guerra mondiale con il principe Aleksander, figlio dell'arciduca F

Per tutti i ragni... che storia!
1914. L’assassinio dell’arciduca Francesco Ferdinando, erede al trono dell’Impero Austroungarico, getta l’Europa nel caos e, in breve tempo, trascina una nazione dopo l’altra nel vortice di quella che diverrà la Grande Guerra.
Lo stesso giorno della morte dei suoi genitori, Alek, unico figlio dell’arciduca (ma non suo erede, poiché nato da madre non nobile), è costretto a lasciare in piena notte la sua casa e a darsi alla macchia, scortato da un manipolo di fedeli

Loved it!
The Leviathan Trilogy is set in an alternate Earth scenario where Darwin has discovered the missing DNA link which allows us to meld and minipulate biological beings into useful tools like weapons and airships such as The Leviathan ofcourse there are detractors who would rather rely on machines and it is very believablke as the two theologies and there ‘machines’ are well devided by countries and National doctrines – much like religion did for many hundreds of years, (and in some place

Karena berbagai hal, disini saya tampilkan sampul trilogi Leviathan versi gear karena itu lebih keren dibandingkan dengan sampul tipikal ala YA yang saya punya.

Leviathan Trilogy karangan Scott Westerfield ini merupakan novel YA, (walaupun saya tidak begitu setuju menyebutnya sebagai YA) yang mengisahkan tentang Pangeran Aleksandar, putra fiksional Archduke Franz Ferdinand dan Deryn Sharp, seorang perempuan Skotlandia yang menyamar sebagai lelaki agar bisa mengabdikan diri di Angkatan Udara, dala

“The Leviathan” is a very well written story of a Prince named Aleksander and a girl named Deryn who is posing as a boy to get into the air force. It is set in a steam punk Victorian era all around Europe. A war has broken out between those who use mechanical engineering known as clankers and those who use genetically mutated animals known as beasties. Alek and Deryn eventually meet each other due to the circumstances.
My favorite part of “The leviathan” is when Alek is tricked into a stormwalke

Bellissimo!
Avventura e romanticismo come nei vecchi classici d'avventura; con un tocco di fantastico e fantascienza.
Ottimo per adolescenti e adulti cresciuti con Salgari e Verne e i tanti altri avventurosi :)

These books are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!
Before I found the LEVIATHAN trilogy, I had completely given up on young adult books. I hate the lame mainstream books, like the Hunger Games and John Green's books crap (though I kinda liked Harry Potter).

I found out about these books while surfing the web, looking for books that had Nikola Tesla as a character. Then I found this, and was very intrigued by the title, so I did some research. After a few weeks, I bought them, and I wasn't disappointing at al

BEST YA SERIES EVER.
Jellybean6401
I liked how Scott Westerfield incorporated beasties and clankers with the war but I was very confused about the beastie and clanker jargon. It was boring because the story didn't develop well and the only reason why I finished it was because I had to for school.
I wouldnt recommend it

(Note: I need to buy Goliath to complete my set!)
REALLY enjoyed these. Whole childish, I thought they were amazing mind experiments, what with made-up, clever animals and alternate history. This is a unique trilogy and I hope to find more like it.

Il problema della scrittura secondo le regole del manuale è che produce uno stile magari efficace, anzi, più precisamente efficiente, ma insipido e privo di qualunque guizzo di personalità.
