book review: the astrologer’s daughter

The Astrologer's DaughterThe Astrologer’s Daughter by Rebecca Lim
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars. I really loved this book. Avicenna was a fantastic narrator, and I loved all of the charts that were actually illustrated throughout the story. It was well written, intriguing, and not the typical young adult love story. So far I’ve found that many of the Australian books I’ve read have been unique, and full of beautiful prose and believable characters, and this one was no different. I would highly recommend checking this out, and if you’re not hooked from the start, it probably isn’t for you. The only reason I wouldn’t give it five stars is that parts of the story remain ambiguous, even after the end. However, I felt that it echoed Avicenna’s resolve not to reads her own chart, and to let things unfold in whatever surprising ways they may.
