Finnikin of the Rock - Melina Marchetta 70% of this book is incredible, but its bookended by way too much bullshit whining from the title character. Good God, between him constantly drawing ridiculous conclusions and needing every fucking person in the world to explain how he's yet again wrong, and the whole "no father could bear to see his daughter..." fucking horror, I want to slit the throat of every man in the whole kingdom.

Which is too bad, because holy Hell is that middle 70% fantastic.
