Kate, over on The Dramaturge At Home, ensnared Graceling into her realm. With one of the more analytical review about characters I've read on here in a while, Kate explains her enjoyment of the book. Forsooth!
Yay, a strong female central character! We need more of these. Not that I didn't love the Harry Potter phenom, but still.
I like a book that packs an emotional wallop. Cashore writes a lot of emotion into and around her characters. I was FURIOUS by the end of the first section (there are three); a lot of this is because Katsa, the main character, is a very angry and wild young woman and Cashore's writing evokes that emotion.
