A review by mrssmithreadsrom
Fable, by Adrienne Young

adventurous tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


I loved everything about this book except for 2 things:

1) I’m not big on secrecy and lying, two things that the world Fable lives in thrives on. Knowing it is how her world works helped me look past my own irritations, but it did keep me from fully loving this story. 

2) There we’re some passages where I was confused about the setting. It seemed like those were instances in which Fable was daydreaming she had a functional family, but it made it hard to understand when she was dreaming up her father’s presence and when she wasn’t, or when she was having memories of times she truly experienced and when she wasn’t. 

The cliffhanger was a little confusing too, but that just adds intrigue to reading the next book for me.
