ما يجب أن يقال؟ رواية صغيرة رائعة ، الهروب في أفضل حالاتها!
brilliantly written, laugh out loud funny and overall a very nice read.
Not as much fun as the Inferno. It is quite deep, with a lot of theology wrapped up in it. It was difficult for me to understand because of all the references he made to Greek Mythology, Aristotelian astronomy, and medevil politics. Still glad that I read it.
Let me start off by saying that books involving dragons are not normally my thing. I don't have anything against dragons, per se, I just find dragon books to be wholly overwritten most of the time. I'll make George R.R. Martin's books the notable exception. And I'll add this one to that list as well. It took me a while to understand the style she was going for. I thought the language was a little stilted, and then a realized that she was writing an English book of manners, a la something by the Brontes. At that point, I decided that I quite liked it. The rider character is a well-built one, but it's the dragon that steals the show. He's an incredibly compelling character with his own set of values that sometimes conflict with the rigid social structure in which he find himself. Highly recommended.
