Recensione

Uprooted has leapt forward to claim the title of Best Book I’ve Read Yet This Year. . . . Moving, heartbreaking, and thoroughly satisfying, Uprooted is the fantasy novel I feel I’ve been waiting a lifetime for. Clear your schedule before picking it up, because you won’t want to put it down.”—NPR
 
“A very enjoyable fantasy with the air of a modern classic . . . Naomi Novik skillfully takes the fairy-tale-turned-bildungsroman structure of her premise . . . and builds enough flesh on those bones to make a very different animal. . . . The vivid characters around her also echo their fairy-tale forebears, but are grounded in real-world ambivalence that makes this book feel quietly mature, its world lived-in.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“Novik here delivers a tale that is funny and fast-paced, laced with hair-raising battle scenes and conspiracies; it also touches on deeper ecological concerns we grapple with today.”The Washington Post
 
“Novik takes us on a surprise-filled journey. . . . The resulting warmth and intimacy provide a nicely nurturing environment for her heroine’s unusual adventures.”The Seattle Times
 
“Breathtaking . . . [Novik] weaves a tale that is both elegantly grand and earthily humble, familiar as a Grimm fairy tale yet fresh, original, and totally irresistible. This will be a must-read for fantasy fans for years to come.”Pubilshers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Drawing on her Polish heritage and fairy-tale tropes, [Novik] has penned an original and fully realized fantastical place guaranteed to enthrall her longtime fans and attract new readers. This exceptional fantasy for adult and teen readers should appeal to those who love fairy-tale influenced stories such as Robin McKinley’s Spindle’s End.”Library Journal (starred review)

“Every so often you come upon a story that seems like a lost tale of Grimm newly come to light. Uprooted is such a novel. Its narrative spell is confidently wrought and sympathetically cast. I might even call it bewitching.”—Gregory Maguire, bestselling author of Wicked and Egg & Spoon

“The magic in Uprooted, with its realistic moral dimension, is so vividly believable that it almost seems you could work the spells. But the book will do that for you.”—Ursula K. Le Guin, award-winning and bestselling author of The Earthsea cycle
 
Uprooted has everything I love: a great heroine, new takes on old myths and legends, and surprising twists and turns. A delight.”—Cassandra Clare, New York Times bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments series
 
“Magical and practical, otherworldly and planted in the real, I could not stop reading this book and neither will you!”—Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author of Trickster’s Choice and Trickster’s Queen
 
“Wild, thrilling, and deeply, darkly magical. An instant classic.”—Lev Grossman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Magicians Trilogy
 
Uprooted is one of those tales you come back to over and over again because it’s just that enchanting. The adventure builds with such tension that you are peeking through your hands at the end, hoping it will all be okay, and Naomi Novik delivers a conclusion that’s deeply satisfying, earning a permanent space on my bookshelf that I’ll revisit often.”—Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author of Shattered
 
“Reading Uprooted was like rediscovering a favorite old sweater, familiar and beloved. It feels as if it has always existed and has been waiting patiently for me to return to it.”—Maggie Stiefvater, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Shiver Trilogy
 
“I didn’t know how much I wanted to read a book like this until it was already in my hands. Uprooted has everything I love about Novik’s writing style, with the added bonus of some old-world magic and the flavor of a dark faerie story.”—Patrick Rothfuss, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Kingkiller Chronicle series

Uprooted by Naomi Novik is enchanting, in every sense of that fine old word. A charming and inviting story that looks unflinchingly at the strangling roots of hurt and revenge.”—Robin Hobb, bestselling author of Fool’s Assassin
 
“The roots of Uprooted are planted deep in fairy tale lore, but the story that Naomi Novik has coaxed forth is fresh and compelling. It reads like a previously undiscovered origin myth in the best possible way!”—Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author of the Kushiel’s Legacy series
 
“I’ve been a diehard fan of Naomi Novik’s work since reading His Majesty’s Dragon, and her new fantasy, Uprooted, is an utter delight. Novik writes the kind of book that wins your heart and lights up all the pleasure of your brain.”—Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble
 
“Novik has written a living heart-book, its mythology vital, deep, and true. I am in awe.”—Rachel Hartman, author of Seraphina
 
“This is a beautiful book. The magic is true magic, and the human relationships—especially those between women—complex and believable.”—Ellen Kushner, author of Swordspoint
 
“The most darkly compelling fantasy I’ve read in ages, Uprooted is overflowing with profound dread and real beauty, and boasts a heroine who blazes with spirit and originality. Not to be missed!”—Christopher Golden, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Snowblind
 
“Naomi Novik’s Uprooted is a marvelous fantasy reminiscent of Howl’s Moving Castle. Her setting, characters, and the magic they use are all brilliant. I devoured the book in one reading. Well done! I want more!”—Todd McCaffrey, New York Times bestselling author of Sky Dragons

Sinossi

WINNER OF THE NEBULA AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL • Naomi Novik, author of the New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed Temeraire novels, introduces a bold new world rooted in folk stories and legends, as elemental as a Grimm fairy tale.

HUGO AWARD FINALIST • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR | BuzzFeed | Tor.com | BookPage | Library Journal | Publishers Weekly

Uprooted is confidently wrought and sympathetically cast. I might even call it bewitching.”—Gregory Maguire, bestselling author of Wicked and Egg & Spoon

“Our Dragon doesn’t eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through. They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice, and he were a real dragon. Of course that’s not true: he may be a wizard and immortal, but he’s still a man, and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years. He protects us against the Wood, and we’re grateful, but not that grateful.”

Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life.

Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood.

The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows—everyone knows—that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her.

But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.

Di D. Foa' il 16 marzo 2017
Formato: Formato Kindle
** spoiler alert ** I read this book as part of the nominated works for best Novel in 2016 Hugo Awards.
Although in the end I gave the maximum score I had varying feelings toward this novel.
It starts in an almost mysterious way with this "Dragon" coming to the main character's village in order to "kidnap" one girl for 10 years for an unknown purpose.
We follow this girl to the Dragon's tower and discover that she has some magic in her and he will teach him how to use it.
Then the usual battles against the evil (this time it is a corrupted wood) and also against the not-so-evil.

Pros
- Very good storytelling (and in the end this is what counts)
- Good and unexpected ending, which earn the book the fifth star which was losed in the second half of the book

Cons
- Still don't understand the usage of Eastern European names and folklore, as this does not seem to be a dystopian Earth
- No development of the magic learning, as Agnieszka passes from a disaster magic school girl to the most powerful witch ever seen without undestanding basically why.
- I am not prudish, but I find the sex scene between the two main characters totally unnecessary

He was a thing of books and alembics to me, library and laboratory.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik has that particular feel of an old tale told in front of the fireplace, surrounded by a warm, old and comfy blanket, with a cup of tea or chocolate at hand. It makes you imagine a tale of adventures, foe, great feat and, maybe, an everlasting love. I don't like to spoiler things for anyone and with this book it can happen easily. Thus I will not tell anything too specific about the story, you can already decide if it is intriguing or not by reading the plot and the excerpt. I will tell you only this.... Uprooted gave me all of what I listed above and even more. I'm sorry to be so late in speaking of this book because it was one of the best of 2015 for me but it's not always so simple to put my thoughts on words after reading a book I liked so much.
It starts with a premise non truly original but then takes unespected turns because of the story behind. A story that the author keeps firmly secret till the end, when all is finally clear to the reader. Therefore it's all revealed by degrees so as to truly appreciate the world Novik has invented. It was this author's skill that made me appreciate the book more...it's not really common to find an author that can keep the reader oblivious for the majority of a story, much less for an entire book! And we can't forget about the MCs! Both the female and male MC are truly inspired. The opposite one of the other. Him, the Dragon. A gruff, rude, sophisticated, sociopathic know-it-all (yeah, I know but he is such a character XD). Her, the peasant. A common, ignorant, wild, unkempt young thing. It is obvious that the clash of wills soon makes any kind of fear Agnieszka could have ever felt pass quickly.
Before this book I hadn't read anything of this author but it's sure now that she has gained a new follower.

5.0 su 5 stelle Destined to be a Classic Must-Read Fantasy Novel 17 maggio 2015
Di Benjamin Thomas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Recensione Vine di un prodotto gratuito ( Cos'è? )
Having been a fan of Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series for many years, I have often wondered what she would do if she ever decided to write something else. After all, this is a woman who studied English Literature at Brown University, holds a degree in Computer Science from Columbia, and wasn’t afraid to show her geeky side as a game designer on Neverwinter Nights. That’s a pretty awesome combination in my book and when she chose to write the Temeraire series, a fantasy/historical mashup combining the concept of intelligent dragons working as a sort of Air Force with wartime forces in the Napoleonic era, well…I was hooked.

So now comes this new novel and my bottom line verdict is that it is fantastic. It’s straight fantasy but absolutely reminds one of that nostalgic feeling of fairy tales you read (or were read to you) from childhood. After reading the opening two chapters I thought I was on my way into just such a fairy tale, but it wasn’t long before any ideas I had about predicting where this was going were thrown out of the proverbial window. The plot begins as a twist in the age-old concept of a young maiden being picked every ten years by the village elders to sacrifice to the dragon in order to buy its protection. The twist is that this time it’s not an actual dragon but a renowned wizard who requires the sacrifice. And he doesn’t select the pretty young maiden that everybody was planning on but instead chooses Agneieszka, our protagonist, and it is though her eyes that we see the story unfold.

OK…interesting twist but I still thought I knew where the plot was going. I was wrong.

No spoilers from me but suffice it to say that this novel kept me turning the pages way past my bedtime. Ms. Novik is a masterful storyteller and knows how to pace a book to keep the reader hooked all the way through. Her use of language is perfect for this type of tale, combining the lighter fairy tale elements but also taking a deep dive into battle scenes with a hard grittiness that, frankly, surprised me. And the world building…this is how it should be done. It’s obviously fully developed but we aren’t bombarded with extraneous details that we don’t need. We can understand everything and how all the characters fit together but don’t spend much time with info dumps.

I understand this book is being marketed as YA although I confess to not really understanding the distinction anymore. The only thing remotely YA about this is the fact that Agneieszka is seventeen years old at the beginning of the story. Rest assured there is no “dumbing down” of the plot, the rich characterization, or the language/word choice. True, there is no swearing to speak of but there is violence aplenty. Lots of fighting action and violent deaths, plenty of creative use of well-imagined magic, and a tasteful but on-stage sex scene all combine to make this one a keeper. And the plot about the woods…the intelligent life force of the dark woods and how it consumes people…oh yeah…no spoilers. You’ll have to read that yourself.

This book is complete in and of itself. I could see how there may be a sequel or two (or seven) but there may never be more.

Well done Ms. Novik. Highly recommended!

4.0 su 5 stelle Good Book, Less Than Awesome Ending 19 febbraio 2016
Di Kelly - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I absolutely loved this book for a couple of hundred pages. The book grabs you immediately and pulls you in to an authentic, amazing story world. This book was different from any other book I'd ever read, and the premise was fascinating. As we got closer and closer to the end of the book, however, I was not as enchanted. This book starts out stronger than it finishes, and I wasn't crazy about the way it ended.

The main character is interesting and believable - until [slight spoiler alert] she gets involved in a sexual relationship that was entirely unbelievable and bizarre to me. It was like the author thought "Oh, yeah, I gotta throw some sex in there, here, let's do this..." It SO did not fit the personality of the main character [or the love interest, for that matter]. It was just weird and awkward.

I think the book is worth reading, but I definitely loved the first half more than the second half.

4.0 su 5 stelle Mostly Good. Some Problems 13 marzo 2016
Di Avery Abernethy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a very well crafted book with a traditional fairy tale meme. Most of the characters are likeable. The villains are completely evil. Strong female protagonist.

This is a long book. The first half will go very fast. To resolve the conflict, in the last 25% of the book the characters make some bizarre decisions. It all works out in the end, but I did not find the characters actions to be believable to their earlier depictions.

I flew through the first 2/3rds of the book and had several head-scratching moments with the last quarter.
4.0 su 5 stelle Enjoyable, but not perfect (minor spoilers at the end) 19 luglio 2017
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Enjoyable tale, that initially didn't go where I thought it would, but at some point I developed a pretty good idea of how the ending would go (though not the specifics).

A few minor things that bothered me:
(1) Initially, it appears that the magic system is gendered; however, it soon becomes clear that the Dragon's magic works the same way for most wizards, male or female. What is left unclear is what makes Agnieszka's magic work differently. We are only given female examples for that style of magic.
Minor spoilers follow:
(2) It took them too long in one sequence to do the obvious thing: Kasia should have tried to use the special sword on the queen much sooner than she did.
(3) I really need to see a map of the path along the Spindle River they were following at the end. So... they have to be going downstream, for there to be a danger of them going over a waterfall. But then they get to a smaller portion of the river, as if they were going upstream? What?
5.0 su 5 stelle Beautifully crafted coming-of-age story 1 ottobre 2016
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I really enjoyed this book. The writing is well-done, and I would say it reminds me of a mix of Austen, Bronte, Le Guin, and Tolkien, all wrapped up in a fairy tale, a mix that makes me squee with joy! I enjoyed the main character and found her journey engrossing. The romance is simmering and takes its time. I read other reviewers who complained there was an abusive quality to it, or that there's not a believable relationship developed, and I couldn't disagree more. I think Novik takes her time showing us a lovely and slow understanding between the two protagonists, but the reader has to pay attention to the subtext. It reminds me of Jane Eyre, or even Pride and Prejudice in this way. So many fantasy romances are obvious and melodramatic, but this one shows through details and subtext what is happening emotionally. And the romance is really in the background here. And that's also what I love about this book. The star is Agnieszka, and we follow her on her journey to her own power - literally and figuratively. She learns to trust her own intuition and walk her own path. The action scenes are fantastic. Novik can write a compelling and engrossing battle scene. I was a little concerned this book would be too "young adult" for me, but really it seems more like an adult book despite the age of the protagonist. Again, I think of Ursula Le Guin's writing. I can see why this won the Nebula award.
