Original, flowing and full of imagination... however, in comparison to the film, I have found him rather disappointing. I expected more. The character of Iveine is completely different from that brought on the screens and not in a positive way: she is ill-tempered, mournful and insensitive. I generally like the books from which film and tv series are drawn so much more. Till now this is the only case in which the contrary has happened. As far as the link, it should be specified that the ebook is only in english.
