Lovely, engaging, entertaining, STRONG Female lead
i think in our culture, its especially important for books to show young woman how possible and important it is to be strong, self sufficient, and res..Show More »ilient. that was, and still IS my hugest gripe about the twilight serries. A weak, simpering, downright depressing female lead - which sadly god so much attention from our young women :(
this book has a really great female lead. she is so self sufficent, strong, intelligent, fearless, etc. she is a real go getter. i would not hesistate to let my daughter or my most precious little girl friends to read or listen to this book. I will even give it to my 8 year old friend to listen to, because the character reminds me of her. i liked that.
Also, as a writer myself, i was impressed with how she used words to imply and describe events that would not typically be used to do so. When done wrong, taking such liberties with our language can reall destroy a good book, and make you avoid future work by the author. but when done right, it helps to paint the picture and really engages you. she did a lovely job in my opinion.
