This was a really good book. It's hard to make an assassin a really sympathetic character, but I liked Katsya, and I really liked Po. I like that their solution is tailored to them. I like the villain twist, and the well-crafted political ins and outs. The book did seem to end quite suddenly, but I believe there are more. Certainly the third book is about at least one of the characters. In all, quite an enjoyable read, and I look forward to more by this author.

I like the first 2/3 of Graceling a lot. The main character is badass. There is a moment in the book where she feels betrayed about something and I really empathized with her. I like how Katsa and Poe interact with each other, and I think the world is interesting.

However, the last third of the book is kind of strange. The relationship between Katsa and Poe takes a very unnatural turn, and the book gets kind of preachy and forced.

OMG, Fantastic! I stayed up all night...had to finish. Compelling, great world-building, strong complex characters... more later.

This was a good book (around the same quality as Graceling). Perhaps my main qualm was that the book used Fire's beauty as the major plot device the entire time. The idea that someone is "so attractive that it causes problems" is interesting for a while, but when it became the entire book it got tiring. Also, the plot was a little too straightforward. I could have guessed it from page 20 (give or take some side-trips that Fire takes), which is a little frustrating from a literary perspective...
