summary ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Dave Freer Cuttlefish (Cuttlefish, #1) review Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB L soldiery comes ravening Clara and her mother are forced to flee aboard the Cuttlefish Hunted like beasts the submarine and her crew must undertake a desperate voyage across the world from the Faeroes to the Caribbean and finally across the Pacific to find safety But only Clara and Tim Barnabas can steer them past treachery and disaster to freedom in Westralia Carried with them a lost scientific secret that threatens the very heart of Imperial power. Cover Blurb Yes or No Honestly no For on thing there s what I am not calling character impersonators on the front which I have never liked It always spoils my own imaginings of what the characters look like And for another despite the awesome sailsubmarine the cover makes me a little boredCharacters I like that Clara Protagonist No 1 is as adventurous as she is In an adventure story it s always good to have an adventurous protagonist And Clara is astonishingly useful But she also has a feminist attitude and her crush on Tim gets very old Tim Protagonist No 2 is also pretty acceptable He s not as adventurous as Clara but he does what needs to be done and he also demonstrates uite a bit of usefulness But his harping on people not liking him because he s black gets old we got it the first time and his crush on Clara is annoying after a time as well The rest of the characters didn t make much of an impression on me either way They were different enough from each other to be easily remembered and they came across as very realistic very human characters but there was nothing particularly special about them that stood out eitherThe Romance While the story doesn t spend a whole lot of time on Clara and Tim s mutual attraction it spends enough time that it got annoying Authors seem to think that a boy and girl are not capable of being just really good friends The romance was not needed there is no reason on Earth why they couldn t have just been friends and it did at times threaten to slow the story down Plot The plot itself was interesting a scientist on the run from several governments because of a discovery they made a world of coal powered submarines and water awesome But there were several flaws with presentation For one I thought the whole premise for why the world was covered in water Global Warming was just lame and felt like an interjection of personal opinion Can we please have an adventure story without the political agenda The other flaws were the Author waited until well over half the book was finished to explain exactly how it is Great Britain maintained its hold on the rest of the world Even so you have to read the Author s Note at the end to fully grasp the world s political situation and even that didn t make much sense Believability I ll give the Author tremendous points for his submarine the Cuttlefish It was entirely believable and absolutely awesome He clearly spent a lot of time designing it and I applaud an Author who wants a plausible working contraption in his story and not just something he cobbled together and then said Hey it s fiction in this world it works One aspect that made me cock an eyebrow in doubt was how readily Captain Malkis dismissed the idea of a spy on board his vessel Even if the suggestion was coming from a couple of kids I think the Captain would have taken into considerationWriting Style I enjoyed the Author s descriptions of the submarine which were actually very easy to follow and understand The rest of the writing was so so and the Author used in very odd places At the beginning of dialogue at the end in the middle in the middle of the middle And rarely did he use it because a character had trailed off in mid sentence or another character was butting in or they were musing It was just thereContent NoneConclusion Even for having a seuel the end was very abrupt But the climax was exciting As a whole I enjoyed the story s adventure and the submarine who wouldn t love the submarine It completely makes the book But the world s politics were not made very clear the whole Great Melt was just lame and the protagonists were not the world s greatest Still the adventure makes it worth itRecommended Audience Steampunkers girl and guy read fifteen and up
