#10 - Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval - Stephanie G. Garber

I requested this book on NetGalley a few weeks ago but did not got approved. I thought, not a big deal, I'll wait for it to come out. Then I went to Maastricht and found it in the bookstore (really, I should check this place more often, they have a lot of new releases), it was not even supposed to be out yet.

 

Anyway, I grabbed it. And I was really surprised by this book. I was not expecting that at all. I was expecting something darker and bloodier (even if there was some blood and it was not always joyful), but that was fine. There was something totally crazy about this book and I loved it.

 

The events of the book take place in a few days (or rather nights) and it was quite fast-paced. I did not really keep track of all the events, the plot had not such a great importance for me because I was mesmerized by the world the author created and the crazy ideas she had. It wasn't like anything I had ever read. It was different and I liked that.

 

The characters were great and difficult to pinpoint. They were not that complex, there was a sort of good against evil, but some of them were really mysterious.

 

I recommend this book if you're in the mood for some craziness.
