This is a book that will live with me a long time and I can't wait for books two and three in this trilogy. It has a boy with an astonishing memory, his sidekick, a girl who has the gift of prophecy, a talking orangutan, angels, incredible science, nanosaurs - a new animal kingdom created by a mad scientist when all the real animals disappear from the world. The most amazing idea is The Cosmic Algorithm, the computer code of all creation. The main boy memorises this code and this makes him the most important person on Earth but he faces instant death if caught by the nanosaurs or the spirit creatures that control him. This is Mortal Engines and His Dark Materials rolled into one but with much, much more. Amazing imagination.
