Barking spiders! What a fantastic, breathtaking finale to this great series! If you enjoyed Leviathan and Behemoth, you will not be disappointed with Goliath. This is edge-of-your-seat, high-stakes, nonstop adventure, with plenty of humor, drama, history and everything fans of this series have come to expect. If you have not read or listened to Leviathan or Behemoth, DO IT NOW!
Alan Cumming gives another virtuoso performance in this third installment, and his ability to give a different voice and accent to every single character (human or otherwise) - while maintaining Westerfeld's lightening-fast, witty dialog and downright cinematic action sequences - continues to be astonishing.
I also recommend picking up print versions of this series, if you can, because Keith Thompson's intricate illustrations add a whole new dimension to the books, providing great visual aids. I actually read this in print first, and then listened to the audio version afterward.
The only downside is that now the trilogy is complete, unless Westerfeld decides to continue the adventures of Deryn, Alek & Co. in a new series (which he certainly leaves the story open for...fingers crossed!).
Five stars all around!

What did you love best about Goliath?
I loved their visit to Japan the best. Deryn and Aleks eat noodles at a roving noodle cart, and that scene has stuck in my mind!
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Well, the ending is left open so that there could be a sequel. Please, Mr Westerfeld, we'd like more Deryn and Alek!
What about Alan Cumming’s performance did you like?
He's hilarious and does such a funny job with the German accents.
Any additional comments?
If you have listened to the earlier two, you are already downloading this one! If you haven't, go download Leviathan and you'll soon be downloading this one as well. ;)
