Yeah, I don't want tally anywhere near me, but I have no outstanding issues with her character, Scott portrayed as being very human.

I like Tally, I find that she's very easy to relate to.  I don't think she's as narcissistic and vain as everyone thinks she is, I think she's more a product of the society she was raised in.

She wasn't the most like able character in the books that would've been Az, Andrew or Zane.

Pardon me while I laugh my ass off. Honestly, the only really likable characters didn't show up until Extras. And one of them was the hovercam!
(but maybe thats cause I want on SO BAD...I'd trick it out with professional grade lifters so it could pull me along, and store all my school stuff on it, maybe stick in a three-barreld submachine gun into the side...)

Heh...and, I guess it's all in perspective. They're as emotionally shaking as HG to be sure, with as much death (and most of them are actually pretty damn brutal compaired to HG), so I think it's better.

That's Mortal Engines for sure. Admittedly its a little slower in parts than HG but they make up for it with the world.
Also, be warned; in Mortal Engines, NO ONE is safe. I repeat NO ONE. No sheets of Katniss-level plot armor for these guys...
As for where to get them...check Amazon or eBay if neccicary. OR, I think, Gavin put up a link to an online version of the first book somewhere.
