This is the fifth in the series and Hal and his Uncle Nat are invited as special guests aboard the Solar Express in Australia: a train powered entirely by hydrogen cells and the winning entry from Reza's Rocket competition. The winner is a young boy, not much older than Hal, who has a flair for science and engineering. From the start it is clear that not everyone likes the design and even before the train departs from the station, you get the sense the journey is doomed.
This story was set over a much shorter period of time than the other books and is constant action. The suspects aboard the train were all introduced early, but you got to know them as the journey progressed - there was the clever inclusion of a journalist and film maker on the trip meaning their interviews were a subtle but important way of learning backstories and views of the new technology.
The science and engineering aspect of this book were fascinating and there was much to be learnt from the young designer Boaz. There were lots of aspects of the book that any child who loves science could research more about and the setting of the Australian outback was the perfect reason for the eco-friendly fuel.
An excellent book; highly recommended!
They are very difficult to make out much detail in, and some of them are ridiculously small on my kindle paperwhite. The captions are between very difficult and impossible to read. Thankfully m1-ost of them are included in the text, but I don't think all were.
I think the picture are probably better in the paper copies, but I don't own a paper copy of any of them.
That said,I love the series and will pre-order the next one as soon as possible.
