The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
The King of Attolia

morecicero, April 10, 2008

THIS IS A MUST READ. It may seem corny or kiddy or inconsequential, but it truly makes you want to hug it to your chest, make you leave many copies lying around the house because you cannot ever get tired of it. It's a wonder this hasn't been picked up for a tv/movie already.

This is the best of the Attolia books as we see here how Eugenides has grown. Acute observations on people and the complications of how they work are depicted with such clarity that the reader learns so much as well. There are fantastically witty dialogue, brilliant twists and amazing yet still plausible surprises.

Eugenides is one of the coolest characters ever created on paper. Court intrigue and the politics make this book very interesting; this is not only for children but also for adults as well. It's great fun yet the "reality" created is very serious and precarious, touching and heart-wrenching at times, and of course, your favorite characters seem perfectly adept in manipulating all this.

You cannot help being drawn into this great world the author has created. The only thing you'll regret by reading this book is that the author, Megan Whalen Turner, doesn't seem to be in any hurry to write the next book!
