A new student review of Calixte: A Novel by Rosella Eleanor LaFevre

detectiveginger posted a new student review of Calixte: A Novel by Rosella Eleanor LaFevre. See the full review.

The setting was vividly decribed, it allowed the reader to totally immerse themselves into the world of Calixte. The voice of the book was very superficial and stereotypical of a teenager, it gave a very authentic feel to the narration of the story. The characters in the book are at times unrealistic and dislikeable, while this may have been deliberate characterisation, it seems as if the characters needed more depth, more relateability. However, this book is a good start for the aspiring author.
