11:03 pm: Review of Patricia McKillip's 'Alphabet of Thorn.'
Well, I've been wanting to write another rant for a while, but at the moment I don't have any really new ideas, and I don't want to simply repeat myself. So I decided to start reviewing individual fantasy books instead, so that I can point out what I liked and didn't like about them (and get ideas for more rants).

It'll also give me an opportunity to write good words that aren't just gushing praise, which is harder than ranting.

So, since Alphabet of Thorn by Patricia McKillip is the first book I've read for the first time recently, as opposed to rereading an old favorite, it's first up. This has only minor spoilers, for plot twists that I don't think are really important and hinting at the ending without actually telling what happens.

A beautiful disappointment )

Well, that got my frustrations out to a certain extent.
