Looking For Alibrandi was made into a major film in and won the Australian Film Institute Award for best Film and best adapted screen play, also written by the author. Oh my god, this book was amazing!

And much like with Twilight’s Edward Cullen Seriously, he was all tortured soul, and a bit of a victim. Both loveable and detestable. I really liked this book, I am finding it hard to write a review on it though. As it stands, I found her rather unlikable and the other characters naive.

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

So many things would have been much easier and much less frustrating had Evanjalin at any time decided to just talk to her companions instead of manipulating them into doing what works for her. Perhaps the author’s goal was to write a gritty, semi-realistic fantasy. Ten years later, Finnikin is summoned to another rock–to meet Evanjalin, a young novice with a startling claim: He is likeable, like the shy, quiet guy in ifnnikin class who occasionally takes a stand for what he things is right if that makes sense.


But those emotions are equally matched by his level marchettta compassion, endurance, and love for his father, his homeland, and one lucky lady.

If initially I gave this a 4.

Can I view this online? Completely and utterly, buried six feet under. Review also posted at Hollywood News Source.

Who are we without our words? Finnikin is traveling with Sir Topher, after the unspeakable happens in Lumatere: After ten years in exile, Finnikin is led once again to a rock to meet a novice, Evanjalin, who xe plagued by dreams of those held behind the walls of Lumatere waiting for someone to rescue them and return their land of light.

As per usual with Melina Marchetta, the characterization is flawless.

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta (1 star ratings)

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It’s got quite a bit of violence, mention of rape, and later books in the …more It’s marketed as YA but is almost as mature as Game of Thrones. They brush their teeth and go to the bathroom.


It’s extremely rare that I don’t finish a book. What’s the Name o How could he pass on his stories without a language? Finnkkin a fantasy book.

The characters and the realm doca very cookie cutter to me and I didn’t really get invested in what happened to any of them. Sadness, you hear that? Actually, Finnikin had me asking myself some interesting questions at the very least about novels and myself as a reader. Additionally, the pace was quite slow; and the story is told from multiple POVs -and I just felt like when I was finally connecting to Finnikin or Evanjalin. Her first novel, Looking For Alibrandi was awarded the Children’s Book Council of Australia award in and her second novel, Saving Francesca won the meluna award in Froi is my son and I love him sm and I can’t wait to read his story.
