On The Train by Rachel Turtledove



“Turtledoves père and fille offer two tales set on a railroad-girt world. Harry Turtledove (Supervolcano) introduces Javan, a younger man from town of Pingaspor whose 1/3-class ticket permits him to expand his worldview, and whose ambition permits him to make a life for himself within the slim confines of the Educate. Rachel Turtledove’s story describes the first-classification travels of nanny Eli, hired by the Baroness Vasri, who turns into entangled on this planet of the Administrators of the Railroad and the slinkers who stow away. The world of the Educate is insular even as it circles the planet, providing best fleeting glimpses into the wonders beyond, whether the ravages of conflict or the results extra magical areas have on the Teach’s mechanism. The original atmosphere and likable characters have a stunning selection of potentialities that might simply be explored in future books.”


Is travelling on The Teach a means to an end…a technique to complete one’s ride…or is The Teach the destination itself, rolling without end thru nation-states both magical and mechanical?

And what of Javan, the lad from Pingaspor, whose 1/3-type ticket entitles him to a spot on a troublesome bench? He has given up the whole thing he had for that cherished spot. However the place, precisely, is he headed?

Javan’s story is adopted through the story of nanny Eli, employed by way of Baroness Vasri to maintain her son and daughter as they travel on The Train in first-class. But the Baroness’ agenda could run opposite to that of those running The Train…and what will develop into of the kids?
