The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley
The Hero and the Crown

B00kluvR5678, April 22, 2007

this book was such a bore. i was forced to read by a cruel teacher who obviously wanted to punish me for something I've gotten away with. this book had a predictable plot, and was NOT empowering or exciting. I'm not that into the fantasy genre but i do enjoy some of those books no and then. However, this book was downright boring. it took me at least two months to read because i kept falling asleep. I'm not a slow reader, on the contrary, I zip through books rather quickly and i enjoy reading, but this book was a disappointment, at one point in my reading i actually felt embarrassed for Robin McKinley, because it was just so....bad. The Newberry Award judges must have been confused when they chose this book for an award.

I guess my basic recommendations is, DON'T READ IT.
