IDEAS NOVEL | The life of a young author
I' ve just completed Bitterblue by Kirstin Cashore five moments ago (literally) and had an overpowering need to blogs about it, so here I am. It' been a long time since I saw a book that forced me like Bitterblue. Proof is the fact that my last book report was published in February..... dear Mr. February!
However, to start this book review: This is Kirstin Cashore's third book and continues her first novel entitled Bitterblue, which is a continuation of her first novel entitled Rainbow and a accompaniment to her second novel Fire (confusing in the text, but once you start reading it, you'll get it). Fire is indeed one of my favourite novel of all times (despite what others might say) and when I found out that Bitterblue was on the shelf, I was thrilled!
Nevertheless, I found Bitterblue amazing! but for completely different reason than practicing or fire. In both the book and the book, there is a great deal of politics, adventures and romanticism (Graceling is highly romanticized, followed by Fire and Bitterblue last). Many of you know that Cashore has taken very new, old-fashioned positions on romances, with its almost clear contrast to matrimony and a rather relaxed look at sex, while Bitterblue included some of it, it was much easier than in Fire and Gracilla.
The most of Bitterblau's storyline revolved around the troubling riddles and concerns that Bitterblue reveals about leakage. The book shows that the whole show really revolves around leak (and understands its past and present). The fact that Bitterblue was 100% flesh made this novel even cooler.
The Bitterblue is encircled by things and persons she can't even comprehend, least of all by her late, dainty and crazy sire. The things in their palace are puzzling enough without having to face their top consultant's mental breakdown just to talk about a leak. Bitterblue is at a complete loss for information about what went on with her realm and how to fix it, so she chooses to take over and one evening she exits her palace to go out into the cities and uncover its mysteries.
Rather, she runs in with a petite burglar and a much too trustworthy printing man who, unfamiliar to them, shows the queen in her own town, which lies in ruins and is still under leaking lethal control. Bitter Blue uncovers many mysteries with the help of the stolen and compelling Saf (AKA Sapphire) and the spacious Teddy Print.
The Bitterblue and Sapphire Romances burn very slowly, and in many parts of the novel I almost forgotten them, not because it wasn't a good one, I was surrounded by the insanity that Bitterblue has in her castle: killers, drunkards, murderers who try to make everyone forgetful about leaks and Bitterblue believe they're right, obscure the past.
So many storylines in this novel that even after the book was discontinued, I found it difficult to catch my breath. So I really can't liken this book to fire or racket. It was about gracing your body for your heart, fire for your heart for your heart, and Bitterblue for healing and how it is about your heart for you.
To be honest, this makes it the ideal continuation of ga-raceling and fire. There' been so much more to Bitterblue than Fire and Pearl. There was this huge amount of mystery and policy and fear that was not in it. Maybe, as I said, because Bitterblue is not coy and people.
She' s got nothing but her name and that makes her so much more fragile than Katsa (who is the MC of Graceling and is decorated with survival) and Fire (who is a'monster' and has innumerable skills and is obviously the MC of Fire). If Bitterblue had been anything but personal, I would have the feeling that the novel would have been much less effective.
All in all, Bitterblue was a very important novel and is a beautiful conclusion to Graceling's story and a good complement to Fire; it has given us more doubts than just responses about leak. Bitternblue has many responses, but none of them really tell us what we all asked on the show: Why is leak so crazy?
Bitterblue is truly beautiful, because we know what he did. So is Bitterblue. So we, the anthropological reader, really become bitter blue, watching these odd beings from afar and never really grasp the insanity that has forced leak. Feeling the need to reread this book to fully comprehend it forces me to give it 4 1/2 star if I am only able to come back and give it 5 if I reread it and completely soak it.
I' m sorry it was so long, but the book was very extensive and gave me a great deal to say!
