Title: A Confusion of Princes
Author: Garth Nix
Format: Hardback
Page Count: 337 pages
Grade Reading Level: Ages 13 and up

Summary: Who is ready for adventure? Must be willing to travel across vast distances in space and time. Princehood is preferred.

Why I Started This Book:

I started this book because of the title was clever and the intriguing blurb:

I have died three times, and three times been reborn, though I am not yet twenty in the old earth years by which it is still the fashion to measure time. This is the story of my three deaths, and my life between. My name is Khemri.

Why I Quit This Book:

The opening is confusing and boring. It lacks both polish and that indefinable something that draws a reader in and keeps them there. I gave it a few chapters and decided enough was enough. Time to move on.

Your Opinion: Have you read this book? What did you think of it?

Buy: A Confusion of Princes

Rating: DNF (Did Not Finish)
