Not quite as much fun as Larklight, but has the advantage of MOOBS!! Moooob. ( )
  JenniferElizabeth2 | Aug 25, 2020 |
Just as over-the-top fun as the first book, the madcap space adventures of Art Mumby, his sister Myrtle, and their various companions continues.

The plot of this novel is odd and completely silly in the greatest possible way, and can best be summed up by this direct quote from the book, "The British Empire stands on the brink of an invasion by highly intelligent hats from the future!" Yes, you did read that right.

Once more, Art (and occasionally Myrtle) narrate through their journals with hilarious English aplomb. The illustrations are some of the best I've ever seen in books, and they add to the tale rather than distracting from it. Favorite characters will all return, and perhaps a few villains as well. There are new places, creatures, concepts, and gadgets, from vicious sand clams and intergalactic train systems to the colonized astroids of the Astroid Belt.

And when the main enemy of the book is something called a "moob" you just know it's going to be good. I mean, I had a blast just saying it to myself while reading, weird as that is.

Moob, moob, moob... ( )

Much like the first. Moves along at a very quick pace and probably didn't take Philip Reeve that long to write. I think an adult would it enjoy it more if it dwelled more on the details of its Victorian science.

Mar 2017: Enjoyed it twice as much the second time around and was much better able to appreciate David Wyatt's excellent illustrations. ( )

Well, I got this sequel to Larklight expecting to like it slightly less than the first novel. Boy was I surprised! I liked it more - a rare thing in my opinion, for sequels! The character development continues to be delightfully lighthearted and some of the concepts are absolutely hysterical. I also like the occasional geeky in-joke reference to other geeky things. This book is sweet and funny and very fast-paced, without ever being "simple."

All our favorite characters from Larklight return for an encore, mixed up with a sea-bathing retreat asteroid, a race of creatures whose goal is to knit a "World Cosy," and some very curious hats indeed.

Huzzah! ( )

Another book sucked up during the beach weekend, although I totally would have screamed through this any other place at most other times, because it's a rollicking good tale. Any book that combines a being called a MOOB, which just makes you want to say Moob! all the time, knitting by small beings who want to be paid in wool, space, steampunk, the seaside (so it was apropo for this weekend), and witty character banter - well, the five stars are worth it.
