Review: Finnikin of the Rock

Finnikin of the Rock
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a while since I’ve read much straight fantasy, but this book was a lovely dip back into the genre. Although there’s not a lot of magic, that wasn’t a drawback–in fact, it might have enhanced my enjoyment of the story because things were not made easy for the characters. I did guess/figure out one of the revelations of the book, but I wasn’t disappointed in that–I felt vindicated at having figured it out. :) Anyway, there are compelling characters, wonderful world-building, and a first-class plot contained within these pages, so I highly recommend it! (P.S. I listened to the audiobook version, which is delightfully voiced!)
