I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

Finnikin of the Rock

Finnikin of the Rock - Melina Marchetta I honestly thought I would enjoy this book much more than I actually did. For me, this was one of those books that I felt obligated to finish merely because I'd already committed so much time to it. I could have easily walked away at any moment, but was determined to finish. There was something missing. I never really fully connected with the characters. I love nothing more than being swept away to another place and time, but this book never managed to capture my imagination. At least the ending was decent ;p. I have the second book, but I doubt I'll end up reading it ... I'm ready to move on to something else.
