This is a very fast paced book, with intense moments of danger as well as being full of wonder. There are so many things to discover in Down not only geographically but historically...Morden has written a book full of mysteries that are just waiting to be discovered.
Down Station is a fun and interesting read which I zipped through in no time at all!
The world is an interesting and well realised one. The central characters are believable and feel entirely human (though I would like to see more of the supporting cast in the sequel). The plot rattles along nicely, and kept me enthralled to the last page
Once again Simon Morden takes the fantasy genre and moulds it wonderfully...What makes Down Station so great is the immaculate pacing and the way character shapes fate for each of the well-drawn main characters
It's the character's experiences that make this a fresh take on the "cut off from civilisation" subgenre...we're drawn in by their responses to this world
there are horrors that surprise as well as moments of wonder. The story is patient, and every sequence is both a physical battle and philosophical teaching that merge with well-placed hooks
amazingly original mindblowing ideas that completely rewrote and reconfigured a familiar London into something much more sinister and post-apocalyptic.
This is an interesting read with a great new world to immerse yourself in, it is fantastical and thrilling, a great book to add to your fantasy/sci-fi shelf.
Down Station is one of the most intriguing novels I've read in a fair while and I doubt I'll forget it.
an engaging story
an exiting adventure, full of fine writing

The story is patient, and every sequence is both a physical battle and philosophical teaching that merge with well-paced hooks.
