5,0 av 5 stjärnor I cannot actually wait for The Last Graduate to be published!
Granskad i Storbritannien den 30 juli 2021
I'm surprised it has taken me this long to read a Naomi Novik book, as I've had other books by Novik on my TBR for quite a while. If A Deadly Education is anything to go by, I think I have yet another new author to add to the 'favourites' list!

Firstly, having read so much American fiction recently, it was refreshing to see British insults being hurled left, right, and centre in this book!
"'Why would you ask for a spell like that!'
'What I asked for was a spell to light my room, you tw**...'"
El called Orion everything from a gi* to an 'utter wan***,' and I was here, giggling along, for all of it. I live relatively close to the Welsh border, and it was great to see places I know -and have visited- referenced.

Secondly, I loved the references to The Lord of The Rings, namely our main protagonist being called Galadriel (El). The likeness between Tolkien's Galadriel and El is striking. Galadriel had the ability to peer into the minds of others to judge them fairly, and I found this to be very fitting. El was also in possession of "a dark power strong enough to level mountains and wipe out untold millions." In much the same way, Galadriel refused the Ring from Frodo, knowing that it would make her "great and terrible."

I could write a literal book of my own questioning: 'Is El is the way she is in teenagerhood, because of the life she had as a young child?' I shan't bore you with it in this review, but for those of you who are also interested in such things, pages 91, 94 and 144 are great points of reference.

I cannot actually wait for The Last Graduate to be published!
