    Unique, unpredictable & magical

    I would describe Caraval as a blend of Alice in Wonderland with The Hunger Games, which is very different from the fantasy/urban fantasy books that I usually read. Scarlett and her sister, Tella, enter a legendary game called Caraval in order to escape their cruel father. Scarlett believes that the game is a magical performance, but when Tella disappears, it becomes a dangerous race to save her sister. It took me a while to warm to the characters and the writing style, but once the game began, I became intrigued and fascinated. Though at times it felt as if Scarlett was wondering around in a maze, and everyone but her knew the rules as she desperately tried to follow the clues that will lead her to Tella. It was original and creative, with many twists and turns, and I had no idea who was the villain and who was Scarlett’s ally. I loved how the island’s magic amplified the senses and altered time, making it an unreal, otherworldly experience. I hesitate to reveal any more about Caraval, as the pleasure is in the journey itself - unearthing the mysteries and revelations. It is the type of book that it is best to know nothing about before reading. If you enjoy unique, unpredictable, magical stories where nothing is as it seems, with a taste of romance, a large dose of sisterly love, combined with a brutal father and a mysterious fiancé, then you will love Caraval.

    Just missed the mark

    It was an easy read yet a captivating world. It could have been grandiose but I thought that the characters were a little cliche and fell short of feeling real.
