A review by camarie_30
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik


Really disliked this book. I did not enjoy ANY of the characters. El was so obnoxiously the "I'm not like other people" type and constantly rude regardless of the situation she was in. The info-dumping was far overdone. It shouldn't be that noticeable. It was the vast majority of the book even up until the final pages. There was no natural flow to all the info being thrown at you. And as other reviewers have stated, not much happened. It was the same anticlimactic day over and over until graduation. The last chapter drew me in and was the best part but I can't justify reading the next 2 books after 99% of this book had nothing to offer.
