Trolley exhibited none of that 'sameness'. The author created a detailed and grand world that Heather, the main character, lives in, with enough details to let you easily envision and understand this world, but not so many details that the story bogs down. Indeed the story moves along so well that I found myself staying up late because I did not want to stop reading. The story moves along naturally, but ended up going in a direction that was completely and delightfully a surprise to me.
I bought the Kindle edition of the book, and the Kindle formatting was very well done; by which I mean you never noticed it, as there were no errors or glitches (which are present in far too many other books you can get for your Kindle, in my opinion).
I hope the author revisits this world in future books.
What happens when a world is at stake? The consequences are too horrific to contemplate.
In a genre breaking novel, Grig Larson brings Heather January's world to life.
So, in short, buy this book. Even if you're not a huge Steampunk fan, you're likely to find it engaging and entertaining. Hopefully we'll get more books down the road.
I thought the world he created in Trolley was interesting, a possible earth after some sort of cataclysm drove the population underground. The characters were memorable, lots of quirks and unique personality traits. It was fun to connect some of the jargon used in the novel to materials we have in our society today (such as trolley, lectromag). I wasn't prepared for some of the events that happened to the protagonist Heather; They were very intense, particularly considering she's just a 12 year old girl even if she acts more mature. If you have strong reactions to the portrayal of sexual assault, consider this a trigger warning. As a result, I would recommend that readers of this novel be at least 17-18 years of age.
