    1 thought on “Fever Crumb

    1. Fever Crumb is the only girl to have been admitted to the order of Engineers When she leaves the order to assist an archaeologist on a dig, Fever is haunted by memories that are not her own memories that may hold the key to what likes hidden beneath London Though the book is named after the character that s presumably the protagonist, Fever Crumb, she remains so bland and underdeveloped that she rarely garners reader interest Due to her upbringing as an engineer, Fever has a pragmatic view of th [...]

    2. It s an odd world we live in, is it not Otherwise how can Philip Reeve write about using Cheesers Chrice as a curse and blogger as an insult Or about people who think a persisting skin mutation is a sign of racial superiority and then those who hunt them out of jealousy but say it s in the name of peace And what about those technomancers who play with dials and screws while chanting to the machines like they re gods So many things that Reeve presents to us are written in such a way that they sho [...]

    3. Lately a lot of people have been lamenting the state of young adult novels The heroine is too stupid, the parents are absent, the boyfriend or love interest wants to kill the heroine None of that nonsense is prevalent in this book Instead, we are treated to an original story about a very special girl in a very imaginative world.Fever Crumb is the story of a girl named Fever Fever was found by Dr Crumb when she was an infant He brought her to his home and into the Order of Engineers Fever is the [...]

    4. Honestly, it s like a 2.5 stars It s not badly written but it is not my thing This is my second book by Reeve, who is considered a steampunk master, but I didn t really like either of them that much and I do see things repeating in his stories very depressing far future dystopias and cities that walk around under their own power.Fever, however, is an interesting character which is why I even finished the book Fever Crumb it the titular character, a fourteen year old girl who was a foundling She [...]

    5. If I had a Steam Punk shelf this would go on it without question The thing is I have never really found a Steam Punk novel I really like This one is no different I m given to understand this is a prequel I don t plan to read the books it sets up.We re traveling well trodden ground here Mockery of our own technological society is front and center Twisted and partial memories lead to to some odd beliefs and assumptions We are also again dealing with a minority vs a majority persecution set up This [...]

    6. Read by the author.Fever is a nice enough character just too bland , and the book isn t bad writing wise In fact I feel bad for giving this just two stars, but it s exactly that an ok read.The characters were very stereotypical and predictable which I don t necessarily mind but not in an interesting way sadly There s just not enough development I guess, barely enough to interest middle grade kids maybe It s evident that there s further potential, I just won t be staying around for book two.

    7. Fever Crumb is a prequel to the Hungry City books Basically, this will set out how the world of municipal darwinism was built You don t need to have read the entire Hungry City quartet I had only read the first when I started the audiobook nor will you be spoiled for that series by anything that happens here There are some subtle connections in here, but they re mostly in the way of bonuses for fans of the previous series.The London here is rather different from the London of Mortal Engines, tho [...]

    8. As the description says, this book is a prequel to the Mortal Engines series, which I have not read Luckily, it is written so well that prior knowledge of the events of Mortal Engines isn t needed to enjoy the heck out of this book.Fever Crumb was raised by Dr Crumb in the Order of Engineers and is a very rational girl However, her commitment to the Engineers rationality is strongly tested when the secrets of her past begin to resurface and she finds herself in the middle of a dangerous search f [...]

    9. I have to say that I really enjoyed this book, mostly because it was one of the most original YA books I ve read in a while I mean, we in the Middle School teaching racket are used to the latest flux of novels that have come out the past 4 or so years Female protagonist, futuristic setting, something sci fi y, sometimes a setting that takes place in the past, but remains SF, etc etc etc Well Reeves was able to take the whole SF thing and twist it into an old school setting Think steampunk meets [...]

    10. I give Fever Crumb a 10 out of 10 I gave it a 10 because Phillip Reeve just planned the book out perfectly The characters fit the story so well Having Fever being the only girl engineer was a good idea showing how important she is in the story Also, I gave it a 10 out of 10 because of Fever s background with being left behind with only one little note saying her name is Fever That made the the plot so much better I would recommend this book to people who like fantasy, suspense and just a weird a [...]

    11. Oh My Goodness.I got chills after finishing this book.I couldn t do anything but mutter, Where is the next book Where Is The Next BOOK Several times when I was reading I would be so startled by the plot that I would exclaim, What No way I can t believe you did this and just sit there, trying to process all the wild thoughts running through my head Philip Reeve had so many plot twists I never saw coming And when he introduced old characters and you saw someone from the older books and realized wh [...]

    12. I was not familiar with other books by Philip Reeve, my interest in reading it was based solely on the intriguing description, oh that and the wonderful cover art The painting itself made me need to find out who is this Fever Crumb It aptly represented the same feeling the characters in the book keep asking Who are you I immensely enjoyed the subltle humor dispersed through out the book, it brought to my mind Douglas Adams wit amongst chaos The various references to violence were, I felt at firs [...]

    13. Bland Boring Sub Par Waste of my time Confusing at times Weak Just not worth a read in any way I picked it up thinking that I love Phillip Reeve s other series, Larklight, and so I might enjoy this one Not at all In no way.

    14. Who is Fever Crumb I have to admit, I m relieved to be finished reading this book I borrowed it from my school library because it wasn t being checked out and I wanted to see if I could find readers for it I need to know a book to really promote it However, I didn t enjoy this book as much as I wanted to Which is sad because I hear so many good things about the Mortal Engines series by Philip Reeve I didn t realize this was a prequel series until I looked into the next book on And why would I lo [...]

    15. Steampunk novels remind me of surreal art This book made me feel like Salvador Dali s Sleep, painting where I mistook the crutches holding up a sleeping head as needles piercing it I thought the lips were sewn shut It is a creepy painting, straight from my nightmares Steampunk oftentimes has a surreal, nightmarish dark side that slurps me into the plot I can t seem to put down the book even when I want to If you like science fiction, then you ll like this book Philip Reeve s world building is de [...]

    16. Fever Crumb follows fourteen year old Fever Crumb as she s sent away from the only home she s ever known to work for a former Engineer While away from her haven, she learns about her past and that she s than she ever could have imagined.After I received Fever Crumb for review, I discovered that it is intended as a prequel to the Hungry City Chronicles, which I have never read I was concerned that I would be completely lost during Fever Crumb, but I needn t have worried It stands alone perfectly [...]

    17. Fever Crumb came highly recommended by one of my best friends, and although I didn t love it, I did enjoy it and I can definitely see why she liked it The characters are fun and likable or, in the villains cases, distinctly unlikable , the story world is very well developed, the story is intriguing, and it s funny One thing I particularly liked in this new post apocalyptic world, they use a lot of our words to mean different things, and blog is a swearword Also, someone has discovered Harry Pott [...]

    18. This is a well written book I am skeptical of people writing a book from the perspective of a different gender, but the cover and description both were very intriguing, and the story wasn t written in first person, so I gave it a tryd I am very glad I did I found this book engrossing from beginning to end I guess this is steam punk dystopian young adult A fascinating world he created, terrifying and mesmerizing, all the intriguing because it s set in London I loved the references to my era as A [...]

    19. Set a few hundred years after the fall of our own civilizations, London is still recovering from the revolution which freed the commoners of the oppressive rule of the Scriveners, a slightly mutated form of human In this world, Fever Crumb is the first female to ever live in the prestigious Order of Engineers, known for their aesthetic lifestyle and adherence to logic She has never much left the Order s home until a former Engineer, Kit, requires her help at an archeological dig For some reason, [...]

    20. Big fan of Philip Reeve s Mortal Engines Quartet, and this prequel to the world of the Traction Era was a good but not as good I do wonder whether this and its sequels was the result of the publisher editor pressuring for the backstory to be told, rather than any burning desire to do so on Mr Reeve s part.Ah but I do miss the Traction Era the lazy whine of the Rotwang engines on a distant airship, the earth shaking rumble as a predator city passes by, the threat of painful death by Stalker

    21. This book was well written, with an interesting fictional world I couldn t get into the main character though She d been trained to be emotionless, and it s hard to like someone who is that way I could have overlooked it, perhaps, but I really began to dislike her when she told Kit s children than he was dead She bluntly told them, and then when they asked if he had gone on to the next life, she told them that there was no such place Training or no, it s something only a heartless person would d [...]

    22. I love the steampunk dieselpunk result of being a post apocalyptic setting setting, and this is very engaging, with the right amount of action threaded together by descriptive language and a tinge of mystery There s potential here, but this is very much a first book in a series I m curious about the rest in the series, and will probably check out the next one to see if the series starts fulfilling its promise Although I liked the character of Fever Crumb, I enjoyed the characters in Reeve s Hung [...]

    23. Finally A well written, unique young adult novel that doesn t fall hazard to predictable boy girl romance or silly unbelievable plot twists Instead we get a unique universe set in a future London the first book of the Fever Crumb trilogy is a prequel to another series which I m looking forward to reading as well , an engaging plot, interesting family dynamics and a teenage female protagonist that I actually like Also, Noodle Poodle.Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    24. Fever Crumb is an orphan of mysterious originsheard that before Terrible cliche, right But it doesn t matter because the writing is lovely and the story rapidly becomes intriguing THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN CURTAILED IN PROTEST AT CENSORSHIP POLICYSee the complete review here arbieroooklikes post 33

    25. The theme of this story is to be your know person You don t have to be the person your friends and family want you to be Fever feels pressure from Dr Crumb and the engineers to be the perfect engineer She is the only female engineer so it adds even pressure to be better than the best male engineers In the beginning of the story Fever tries hard to not show emotion and to think as rational as she can But by the end of the story Fever realizes that s not the person she is, she cares about people [...]

    26. Phillip Reeve is a most imaginative writer The book Fever Crumb has many elements that showcase his creativity and will speak to the imagination of the reader This YA novel is set in the far future Humankind has survived the 60 minute war The war was many generations ago The fragments of the world as we know it are enough to fuel a niche economy This world does not have the technology level to create new technology, and they have guilds that have tried to hold on to knowledge about past technolo [...]

    27. Originally reviewed here.Philip Reeve has created a most intriguing world in Fever Crumb, the first installment of a trilogy preempting his Hungry City Chronicles also called the Mortal Engines series the prequel trilogy was written after Now, I haven t read the Hungry City Chronicles, so I can t really speak to that effect, but I will say that Fever Crumb was a delightful, quirky, futuristic steampunk like read Fever Crumb appears to be set in our own world, but so far in the future that electr [...]

    28. Ok, so there s a lot of Young Adult Dystopian themed books out there But I heard this one was pretty good, so I decided to give it a try I was not so impressed and there s a few things I wish I would have known before reading the book that I know now.Fever Crumb is the first book in a trilogy But it s not actually the first book set in this future world Apparently, there s a whole other series that people recommend you read first in order to understand Fever Crumb s world But nowhere on the cove [...]

    29. Reason for Reading The plot was intriguing and this is my type of book.A foundling baby girl found by the Order of Engineers, a male society, is taken into the fold and raised to be one of them The baby came with a note stating her name is Fever and since Dr Crumb found her it was reasonable that he was the one who took the main caregiver role 14 year old Fever is now being sent off to assist an archaeologist, Kit Solent, in his home but when she arrives there she starts having memories of the p [...]

    30. Her name is Fever These four words are the only clue to Fever Crumb s identity When she was a baby, she was found abandoned in a basket by Dr Crumb, a highly respected member of the Order of Engineers, an organization that prides itself on reason and logic Despite the fact that the Order does not believe that the female mind can be logical, as Fever grows up, she becomes, at the age of 14, one of the Order s brightest and most rational students Soon, though, she must say goodbye to Dr Crumb to a [...]
