    review Graceling 103 characters Graceling Updated 040114 I happen to like books which feature kick ass feminist heroines and are light on the romance so I should like this book right? Yeah but I don't First of all Katsa acts like a petulant little girl throughout the entire book not some strong feminist poster woman Katsa shows very little if any personal growth over the course of this novel Also I felt like the author spent too much time trying to sell us on t

review Graceling 103 Kristin Cashore ↠ 3 summary characters Graceling Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight she’s a Graceling one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill As niece of the king she should be able to live a life of privilege but Graced as she is with killi. Graceling has a beautiful cover great premise and lots of hype and would be a terrific novel if it weren t for the writing and atrocious main character What is with the awkward sentence structures and prose in this book In these dungeons the darkess was complete but Katsa had a map in her mind It should be In these dungeons the darkness was complete but Katsa had a map in her mind And look at the next sentence One that had so far proven to be correct as Oll s maps tended to do What That made absolutely no sense Instead One that had so far proven to be correct as Oll s maps tended to be Wouldn t that be betterThen later on Turning when it was time to turn What Isn t that redundant And She began to hear voices as she entered a corridor where the darkness flickered orange with the light of a torch set in the wall Dude darkness does not flicker orange if it did then that would not make it dark And it s not with the light of a torch but light from a torch That whole sentence is just full of awkward phrasing and clunky descriptionAnd the next Katsa crept toward the light and the sound of laughter How can she creep toward laughter when it wasn t even introduced earlier It just does not get any better And later on she pulls her hood down over her eyes What the hell How do you expect to fight if you can t see where the heck you re going or what you re doing It s not a surprise she trips over the four guards because OBVIOUSLY you can t see anything Why does she need to pull her hood down to hide her eyes when the guard she fights later ALREADY KNOWS WHAT SHE IS Okay that s it I m done But the biggest offense of the book was the main character Katsa is the most annoying aggravating self centered abusive and violent character I ve ever had the misfortune to read from the eyes from I thought Bella was tops in annoying meter ranking but Katsa wins the prize During the book there were many instances where I wished I could rip her hair out and run her through with her own sword She has some of the big Mary Sue tendencies It wasn t so bad that she was Graced with some special ability but hers was off the wall unbelievable that I couldn t give her any sort of realistic credibility at all Not only can she kill anyone with her bare hands she s faster than anyone builds fire better than anyone hunts better than anyone shoots and fires arrows better than anyone yet she doesn t suffer from the freezing cold as the rest of her comrades it just slows her down when other normal people would be down on the ground dying from hypothermia She doesn t even tire like the rest of them because she just has unending bundles of stamina So much so that she can go for days without sleeping even though they were in some pretty gruesome and difficult battles And the list goes on I mean what can Ms Perfect not do And don t give me that crap about how it s logical because of her special grace There s a special balance between believable and ridiculous and I m sorry but this is way over into the ridiculous areaBut that wasn t the worst of it Katsa s most nonredeemable factor was her attitude No one can tell her to do anything she doesn t want to do even if it s for the wiser And if she doesn t like what she hears her first reaction is anger and then she throws a tantrum until she gets her way But yet every situation she finds unappealing to her the first though that comes to mind is violence I clearly remember a scene where Po told her his opinion which wasn t demeaning cruel or hurtful at all and you know what she does Hits him so hard he falls off his chair and has a wicked bruise W T F And not only that her characterization is inconsistent She s supposed to be this bad ass chick who takes no crap from anyone and doesn t need a man in her life to define her but as soon as Po enters and tells her he s going to leave she cries tears because she doesn t know why What the hell kind of crap is this And what is her utter revulsion to marriage I mean I don t want to get married as well but Katsa s reasoning behind this is not concrete or sufficient enough to support her viewpoint that she vehemently defends many times throughout the book Not bringing children into this world yes I totally get it and understand but marriage Especially when Po is searching for a sign of commitment on their relationship If she did not want to marry him or anyone in particular she could supplement this in other ways but she doesn tI was absolutely disgusted disgusted by the way she treated her horses She treats them as a way to serve her own self satisfying needs without care The first instance that stuck me was when Po and Katsa were riding off somewhere and she slammed her horse against Po s because she wanted to get his attention W T F Not only is that dangerous to the rider because they could fall off but it s dangerous to the horse Slamming into another horse while you re riding is NOT something you do The horse could have fallen because the impact threw him off balance and you re obviously not going to walk away from that injury free or it could have tripped and then fallen Not to mention she ALWAYS pushes her horses to ride fast because she has no patience and wants to get there faster and if someone tells her they needed to rest the horses or they ll break them she just throws hissy fits about how they have to hurry and they re just slowing her down Horses are not machines good god They re living breathing animals that need care just like we doThe next one was near the end of the book where she pushed everyone so hard and rode for hours at a blistering gallop just so they could reach their destination faster And then I clearly remember someone Skye I believe it was telling her that she lamed a horse And you know what Katsa s response to this was Oh he s not lame He s perfectly fine and then throws a fit about how he s slowing them down and they need to get up and ride him harder so they can get to their destination faster OMFG I almost threw the book across the room in rageThe place names were very uncreative You might think they re clever but they were shallow attempts at trying to make them seem fantasy epic like They were just barely concealed renamings of East West South North and Middle And I didn t even get started on the writing It was super choppy suffered from an annoying excess of repetitive phrasing and without a lot of showing The structure was all the same Katsa went and did this did that felt this and so on and so forth Another problem was the insane amounts of info dumping in the beginning After the third page I just couldn t give a rip about the places history what it looked like who was who s fatherI can see why a lot of people love this book There s romance a super strong female character that kicks butt and the tried and true uestadventure formula of a fantasy novel But it s just not for me I absolutely hate not finishing a series so I ll probably read the next one but ugh not looking forward to it My opinion Avoid this book I may probably be stoned to death for this review because every where I go it seems to be so well loved and praised with glowing reviews
