Mr. Christopher introduces science fiction to preteens with out trauma, lust or harsh violence. He accomplishes it in a well written style that draws children in and allows them to enjoy reading.

I didn't read the Tripod series when I was a boy, but when I was 37. However, this doesn't really matter at all as these books are great no matter what your age. I wish I had come across these books when I was growing up - I would have loved them!
In The City of Gold and Lead, the boys must compete in "the games" and enter one of the cities where "the Masters" live. Here they work as slaves and must find some way to escape with the intelligence they have acquired about the alien overlords.
Personally I liked this one the best out of the trilogy. I enjoyed experiencing the alien city from the boys' eyes and learning more about "the masters". Check this series out, you won't regret it!

The audio books and my kindle have opened up a whole new world to me. Having had reading difficulties throughout my early life I am now able to enter a whole realm of adventure. I have devoured the Tripods series The City of Gold and Lead is the second book and continues the longing to follow Will's challenges and struggles to evade capture; to escape; his life as a slave to discover the Tripods life style. I never ever considered I would become a bookworm but I'm well and truly hooked and can't wait to listen to the next chapters. If you like adventure, science fiction and suspense, the whole series is a must and i'm so glad I purchased them.
For me, this is the best book in the Trilogy - it's got everything a reader could want - suspense, mystery, revelation, and adventure. Highly recommended.
