A Song for Arbonne

I recently finished reading Guy Gavriel Kay’s A Song for Arbonne. I have always enjoyed Kay’s novels, and this one did not disappoint. Short of doing a complete book review, I will say that the plot was intricate and engaging, the characters were unique and vividly described, and the themes were powerful. It did drag at times, but that’s probably more because I read it over so many months. Recommended to anyone who likes fantasy novels.

Now I have started Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. So far it is extremely engaging, and hard to put down. The writing style is very simple, almost child-like, which is refreshing after so much of Kay’s eloquent style.
