I Capture The Castle

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith Full review at SFF Book Review.I have a love-hate-relationship with this novel. I adored the style, I found the story just eccentric and romantic enough and I cared deeply about the side characters. I just couldn't manage to like Cassandra, the protagonist and narrator. She always felt too distant and a bit arrogant to me. Watching all the others, observing their ways and (at least I thought) considering herself a cut above the company. I do recommend this book though. It shows the craziness that is coming-of-age perfectly and offers some beautiful writing at the same time. 6,5/10 stars
