Finnikin of the Rock  - Melina Marchetta I never finished it. I had no interest and the characters were off putting.

The story was okay, the writing seemed off somehow, and the characters were poor. Not in financial terms. though they were. Just really really sad. Not depressing. Okay, that was there too...

They were just blegh. Bland. Boring. Bad. Moral compasses spinning round and round.

There were more mature themes scattered throughout. Rape and violence for instance. Not for the younger readers. 14+ at least.

I'm really surprised that so many people love this book. But to each their own...
