(KINDLE) The False Prince Da Jennifer A. Nielsen

Y heighten the drama of his eventual reveal which is so long in coming that I felt no excitement only relief when it finally cameAdditionally any intimacy that I felt with Sage s point of view is effectively ruined by two sections of the book that are written in the third person Why I can think of nothing that is gained by showing us those two scenes in the third person Yes there is important action going on while the narrator is not present and yes his entrance is supposed to be a big climactic scene so in theory it might be nice to be able to see it as a member able to see it as a member the audience But when you ve committed the entire book to Sage s point of view it feels glaring and alienating to suddenly be thrust into a third person perspective There are also a few scenes where Sage checks out for hours at a time His narration is allowed convenient lapses so that he may go off and do secret secret things without the reader nowing about it It all feels as if the author didn t uite Algorithms for Clustering Data (Prentice Hall Advanced Reference Series : Computer Science) know how to negotiate between an intimate first person narrator and the number of secrets that she wanted toeep from the reader The end result is a very obvious distanced boring narrativeWow I thought that I was so so about this book but apparently I disliked it than I realized I was originally thinking that even though I didn t uite like it it might still be a good recommendation for younger readers But don t young readers deserve to have great characters world building and writing too Why not read Finnikin of the Rock The Thief Book of a Thousand Days Graceling Crown Duel or the many other well written young adult fantasy novels insteadAlso seen on The Readventurer 35 stars Fourteen year old Sage is involuntarily hauled out of a rough orphanage by Bevin Conner nobleman in their Made to Crave Action Plan Participants Guide kingdom of Carthya as part of Conner s secret and treasonous plan though ostensibly and debatably he has the ultimate good of theingdom at heart train a group of four very soon three orphans with the skills they would have as young nobleman and pick the best one to impersonate the ing nobleman and pick the best one to impersonate the ing younger son Jaron who was lost at sea four years earlier at the age of ten Once his choice is installed in the royal family Conner will be able to control the My Lover kingdom through this boy The group embarks on an intense two week period of tutoring and training with a constant life and death battle between the boys to win since they suspect with very good reason that the losers will beilled to protect the secrecy of the plan But Sage can t resist rebelling against Conner in both small and large ways The False Prince is generally well written for a YA book and Alcohol Addiction kept my interest but I was irritated by several details Sage s constant mouthing off I get enough teenage lip IRL I don t need to read a book full of it insufficient world building It seemed like it was a general European ish 18th or 19th century ishingdom There was no magic that I recall so I m not sure why the author created make believe countries without bothering to flesh them out Two weeks is all that Conner takes to turn three rag tag orphans into literate Mobilizing New York knowledgeable sword wielding horse riding princes Not a chance You d need six months maybe a year at least Shannon Hale s Princess Academy got this detail much better Very spoilerish reason here view spoilerWhating supposedly a loving father would have his 10 year old son spend several years fending for himself in an inadeuate hostile orphanage with almost no supervision inadeuate hostile orphanage with almost no supervision protection He would send him to some trusted friend he MUST have had at least one trusted friend preferably outside of the country where he could grow up safe and cared for hide spoiler The following two paragraphs were going to be my review before I reached the turning point of the storyIn fairness to the book I made this fatal mistake of reading another fantasy series after Harry Potter and poor book suffered from my biases So to make it clear had I read th I don t Aspects of South African Literature know what the hell is wrong with me I m having 3 star reviews and a couple of 2 star reviews lately than I ever have before I usuallynow how to pick them but I m off or something AND 3 STARS ISNT BAD IT JUST MEANS I LIKED IT WELL ENOUGH I think I now what s going on and I hope to fix it soon I m happy for all of my friends who loved the book to death because there is nothing like a wonderful book Happy Reading Mel. Da ma totalmente privo di educazione e Sage è completamente ingestibile strafottente furbo e scapestrato I ragazzi sanno che solo uno di loro sarà prescelto mentre gli altri due verranno eliminati Tra false identità la competizione per il trono e per la vita i risvolti romantici e l'ambientazione fantasy uesto è un romanzo in cui prevalgono l'avventura l'azione i dialoghi con personaggi perfettamente caratterizza. ,
The False PrinceSince there are uite a number similarities of both plot and characters I can t help but compare The False Prince to The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner But unlike Gen who is one of my all time fave book characters Sage the male protagonist in this book is sadly lacking in depth and not nearly as much funOr it could simply be that I m not the target reader obviously as the protagonists and sups were mostly young teenagers who behaved in a manner that made suspension of disbelief near on impossible And if I may say so that plot twist was unsurprising given the sheer scale of foreshadowing In allmeh Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestCarthya is a ingdom on the brink of war The royal family is dead The youngest son Jaron is missing presumed dead A group of regents all have their eye on the vacant throne and if one of them seizes power it s likely that the entire Social Media in Academia kingdom will be plunged into ruin But one nobleman named Conner has a plan He s rounded up a group of four orphan boys Latamer Roden Tobias and Sage that all have the look of Jaron His plan is to groom them train them and in two weeks crown the one who has best taken to the role As for the others well deathDespite being a thief and an orphan Sage is a proud boy and doesn t takeindly to Conner s cruel tyranny He sustains a number of beatings whippings and torments at the hands of his captor The other boys can t be trusted either They re all in competition for the same thing and if one of them fails the survivors in this cruel competition will gain from their loss THE FALSE PRINCE is one of those books that sounded so good I was afraid to read it because I couldn t stand the thought of being disappointed This was in error THE FALSE PRINCE is awesome It s got all the things I love in YA court intrigue surprising twists peril death heartbreak friendship competitions deception and action Sage is an excellent narrator He has all the snark of Artemis Fowl but the humanity and determination of characters like Katniss Everdeen that make your heart ache for them as well No matter how big a jerk he is there s never a moment where you don t want him to succeed because you feel in your heart that he deserves itThe only things that I can really ding this book for are the main twist I saw it coming pretty early on Also Roden s and Tobias s characters started to feel pretty interchangeable in the last third of the book Roden especially did some things that just felt out of character This is just me being nit picky though I finished this book in a single sitting it was just that goodLord I need that seuel That ending5 stars This was such a fun uick READ I COULDN T PUT IT I couldn t put it I just had to Dream Save Do: Life is Short, Live Your Dream keep reading I loved the main character and the way he not onlyept secrets from other characters but from us as readers And the dialogue in this book was phenomenal I can t wait to pick up the next one and plan to do it very soon The False Prince is THAT book I stayed up way too late in order to finish itand I m seriously considering throwing all notion o Sick Latamer hot headed Sage erudite Tobias and strong Roden have one thing in common a physical similarity to the 4 year lost and probably dead Prince Jaron of the Kingdom of Carthya With the poisoned death of the royal family the Orality in Igbo (African) Literature kingdom is at the brink of an upheaval and the so called patriot nobleman Conner sees this as a perfect opportunity to bring forward the lost Prince Thus it all comes down to the frail shoulders of 15 year old orphans who are literally in a do or die situation The False Prince is in one word BRILLIANT To me there were hardly any faults to point fingers at The writing is perfect and the description is crystal clear to take you to the training of these competitors introducing to you the history of Carthya the royal hierarchy the fun of sword fighting horse riding and the customs and culture of the realm The chief aspect of Jennifer s writing is however the dialogues Crispy and witty the dialogues paired with a piuant voice of the narrator Sageeeps one fully engulfed in the novelNow you maybe thinking that this book is perhaps a simple straight forward read to the sabotage of the throne after the imposter Prince s training But let me ensure you the plot is anything but that The difficult and adamant working of Sage s mind is one feature which eeps the novel from sinking into In un regno sull'orlo della guerra un nobile Conner con pochi scrupoli e molto denaro decide che è il momento di impossessarsi del trono L'occasione è la morte per avvelenamento dell'intera famiglia reale re regina e principe ereditario Il secondogenito del re Jaron è invece disperso da anni uando la nave su cui si trovava venne assaltata dai ferocissimi pirati del paese vicino Visto che il suo corpo non è mai st. Ust simple training There is one master twist awaiting to Welcome You As Well And The Best Part Is That you as well And the best part is that twist could ve easily made the novel a boring predictable read but fear not The author sure nows how to develop and play with her readers interestsIn addition to the perfect writing a world built with a realistic infrastructure and an amazing plot twist there is one other treat viz a strong appealing central character Sage has a madcap stubborn and sharp witted voice His powerful narration had me hooked to the book from the first page itself and I wanted to Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms know what or how he would respond in the very next second He is definitely one of the best characters I ve evernown Take a peak yourself Once in a conversation with Mrs Turbeldy I compared myself to a caterpillar that went wherever I wanted with barely any notice She compared me to a cockroach instead who ran about freely in the darkness and scattered in the light It was meant as an insult "but I thought it was a fair comparison even a compliment judging " I thought it was a fair comparison even a compliment judging how hard they are to catchAll other characters are masterfully created I had only a teensy bit issue with the ladies Imogen and Amarinda but I m ready to overlook their average roles because in the grand scheme of the awesomeness of this novel it doesn t really count Lastly the book has little to do with romance It majorly focuses on a strong protagonist guaranteed to make this novel one helluva ride for you Layered with intrigue competition adventure adrenaline whip smart dialogues a refreshing voice and smart forward planning the book isn t one which you should leave into the ignoring hallows Now I remember why I gave this book 5 stars and it had me hooked just like the first time I love this series so much Listen this book is so good it got my brother who HATES to read to freaking readI was going into my room and my brother was sitting on the bed reading this book and I was screaming for ten minutes straight And my mom was standing there with her jaw dropped Listen this book is really good It got someone who hates to read into reading It made me want to reread this book And I rated it 5 stars So listenYou should read it This book makes me want to put on my blandest Mr Darcy voice and declare it tolerablebut not handsome enough to tempt me This book is fine I think many of you will notice its exercise brightened eyes and charming irreverence and fall for it But for me it was just okay If you ve read any amount of young adult fantasy you probably The Alchemical Mandala A Survey of the Mandala in the Western Esoteric Traditions know where this book is heading just from reading the synopsis or hell even the title I had a lot of hope that this book would go in an unexpected direction or bring something new to the table but it didn t Of course I had to stick around for the ending just to make sure but hopefully I can now save someone else the time If you think younow where this book is going you probably doI have read other books like Finnikin of the Rock that had predictable outcomes as well but that one at least had gorgeous writing three dimensional characters and impeccable world building to The Alcohol Blackout: Walking, Talking, Unconscious Lethal keep me satisfied This book had none of the above My friend Tatiana recently used the term fantasy lite in one of her reviews and I think this book fits that label perfectly The world building is very simplistic and barely deserves the title fantasy a vaguely historical setting with almost no real culture religion or background There is some small mention of a conflict with a few neighboring nations that is never developed The main character is an argumentative willful scrappy boy who s discovered in an orphanage by a man looking to train and install a look alike asing a puppet ing of course He talks back he pretends to be foolish and of course he s so much than he appears to be In summary he s Eugenides liteNone of the other characters left than surface impressions on me and I found it difficult to care about any of them There is an attempt here at an unreliable first person narrator that doesn t uite succeed Yes Sage lies and pretends to be something he s not but the little hints about his true identity that are freuently dropped are so obvious that it s hard not to get frustrated And even his deception starts to feel illogical by the end Why is he hiding who he is again Why doesn t he tell Mott Or Imogen Or Tobias I can think of no reason except to possibl. Ato trovato Conner ha intenzione di formare un nuovo falso principe che reclami il trono come legittimo erede e che sia di fatto un burattino nelle sue mani Ha uindici giorni prima che la notizia della morte della famiglia reale sia resa pubblica e trova negli orfanotrofi del paese tre ragazzi potenziali sosia del vero principe Tobias è istruito e bene educato ma debole e remissivo; Roden è forte e bravo con la spa.
