PASTWORLD - A NOVEL BY IAN BECK


The VV doesn't tend to read a lot of Young Adult fiction, but Pastworld by Ian Beck is looking very tempting.

In the Financial Times, James Lovegrove said - 'Ian Beck has crafted an exciting Steampunk novel that blends Dickens and Conan Doyle with Michael Crichton and V for Vendetta to good effect.'

If anyone has read the book, I'd love to hear what you think.

  1. I read the book for my book report for language arts class and I thought that it was very interesting. The scenes from the story create an image in your mind and make the suspenseful moments seem realistic. I enjoyed it and thought that the plot for the story was very well done. =P
