: Melina Marchetta: Books

It w I proclaim this is the year, I fell in love with Melina Marchetta. There is no such thing as a perfect novel and certain parts could have been slightly improved – like the climax – but this is about as close as it gets.

I thought the author had way too much sexual innuendos in her story, and way too much marchetga women This is YA Fantasy at it’s finest. Quick synopsis without spoilers: We dont understand kinship. Maybe it had to do with the fact I’d never read anything by her before Yeah thank you very much Melina Marchetta for the biggest lump in my throat for hours on end reading this. Is this a book for adults or teen? WellI think that’s pretty clear that I loved this book, even if in some parts I felt a bit lost and wavering, especially in the third part which was a bit anticlimatic.

And almost worse, his father does the same thing, which doesn’t help me respect the King’s Guard either.


Finnikin of the Rock

I love her, she is just amazing and fantastic character. You and I were supposed to be enjoying the beginning of a beautiful friendship, walking into the sunset together. I think this is the point where Marchetta and I go our separate ways. Finnikin is traveling with Sir Topher, after the unspeakable happens in Lumatere: Though make no mistake, the romance was good and there were more than one occasion when I felt some swelling in my heart over characters being reunited and truths being revealed.

I had me,ina review Whew. An upset man whose beloved has a child with another man? Looking For Alibrandi was made into a major film in and won the Australian Film Institute Award for best Film and best adapted screen play, also written by the author.

This is one of fibnikin books I actually hated. I hate travel stories. I should have known from the title of the book that this is about Finnikin, the son of the Capaion of the King’s Guard, not Balthazar. How do I find a book? Our bread is tasteless.
