Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight she’s a Graceling one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill As niece of the king she should be able to live a life of privilege but Graced as she is with killi Graceling by Kristin Cashore follows in a burgeoning market for strong female charactersKatsa is much like Katniss from The Hunger Games in her naive perception of the world her coldness and tendency towards pragmatic practicality She is similar to Xhex from the Black Dagger Brotherhood in her disgust of all things feminine The story is well written with engaging fun characters Katsa is fun to read about The plot may be a little predictable at times but it did throw me a curve ball toward the end The romance is lovely between Katsa and Po I take exception though to the message that this book sends It is the same message I am reading over and over again in current literatureFrom Bella Swan who looks down on girls who like shopping to Xhex who must be wrestled into a dress and who sees all signs of emotion as feminine weakness and now Katsa who refuses to marry or have children and who despises dresses and long hairMessage to authors It is not nice dresses and pretty hair and an ability to be weepy on occasion that is the cause for the many ineuality issues that women face Putting a woman in pants does not change how the world perceives her It doesn't suddenly make her stronger and better than the woman in the dress who likes jeweleryYour character does not suddenly become the beacon of the feminist movement because she doesn't like dresses So sick of reading about strong independent female characters who don't like dresses and spend most of the novel putting down almost every other female character as weak and pathetic
