Sovay | [Celia Rees]

Sovay

Sovay isn't your typical young lady, not by the standards of any time period. As rich as she is lovely, Sovay may often be found sitting for portraits - when she's not disguised as a man and robbing travelers, that is. But one day she robs the wrong person, and for that act, there will be a steep price to pay.

    "Yawn..."

    You'd expect a long, 2 part audiobook to at least hold your attention through the first half.

    Sadly, Sovay did not. I was wishing for the end long before it came. The plot was ridiculous, the characters as vague and inspiring as cardboard.

    Sovay, the heroine the book is named for, is the stereotypical tough female character who's strong only when she needs to be and stupid all the rest of the time. Which is for most of the book.

    Don't get me wrong, it absolutely wasn't the speaker that ruined this book for me, it was the book itself.

    Even in audio format, I couldn't force myself to CARE about any of the characters and found that after the first 30 minutes I was hoping the bad guys would win quickly, slaughter the goody goodies and spare me the rest.

    Don't waste your money, time, or brain cells on this book. It definitely was not worth it.

    "Eeewww!"

    As an avid fan of the author's previous novel (The Wish House) I was hoping to see some of her genius in this one,Sovay, and was deeply disappointed. The book focused mainly on the "angelic beauty" and "fine powdered wigs" of all the characters (who were no where near developed) and hardly ever got into any real action. The only good thing I can say about this book is that the narration was tolerable and that there was actually an end to the story.
