Hi there, people who read this blog =]
Yes another review, haha.
Book Review: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
Finnikin of the Rock is one of those novels that grips you by the scruff of your neck. Well crafted characters and an interesting plot make a good story, right?
This fantasy novel tells of a young boy – Finnikin – on his quest to reclaim his homeland – Lumatere. On the way he, and his guardian Sir Topher, meet a strange novice who claims to know the whereabouts of the king’s heir. This brings back many memories of the dark days of the fall of Lumatere, in which the king was executed and his children disappeared.
Challenge after challenge and twist after twist are thrown at the group. This book has more twists than a road winding up a mountain, and that’s a good thing because Marchetta once again does a good job of keeping the reader interested.
The book is divided into three parts, all creatively named. The description used is immense. My favourite parts of the book are when we get to hear the opinion of Froi, which is extremely interesting.
Now that I think about it, after reading On The Jellicoe Road it seems Marchetta often writes about identity and families.
This book was a good and enjoyable read and to all you fantasy lovers, you’ll enjoy it heaps.
