Robin McKinley, DRAGONHAVEN

Robin McKinley, Dragonhaven: I read this in its entirety yesterday. It was...interesting. At times, the first-person narration was difficult to read because of convoluted sentences, backtracking, repetition, so I got a little annoyed. But I also thought that maybe the narrative style was meant to say something about how dragons speak, and how humans found it difficult to speak to dragons and vice versa.

I did really like the reality of the world in the novel, the way bureaucracy was juxtaposed with matter-of-fact mentions of dragons, griffins, and the Loch Ness Monster in among all the other endangered species.
