A review by marmaladerolle
A Deadly Education, by Naomi Novik


i listened to the audiobook and it was fun! i enjoyed it for the most part. i sometiems felt that random info dumping/exposition caused large sections of the book to drag particularly when they interrupted action or plot relevant scenes. they felt overly detailed and irrelevant and took me out of the story. i liked el although at times found her somewhat petulant tone a little annoying but i didn’t dislike her! i liked when she finally started making friends. i also just wish she and orion had stayed strictly friends for the whole book rather than suddenly having orion kiss her near the end and imply he liked her. it left their relationship at an awkward spot imo but i still liked seeing them become closer !!
