Melina Marchetta fans
« on: December 08, 2011, 06:14 AM »
Hi- Are there any Melina Marchetta fans out here?  She's one of the best authors that I ever read and it always surprises that many people are not as familiar with her. 

Her books are:
Looking for Alibrandi (YA)
Saving Francesca (YA)
On the Jellicoe Road (YA)
The Piper's Son (Adult)
Finnikin of the Rock (Fantasy)
Froi of the Exiles (Fantasy)
Quintana of Charyn (Fantasy)

THE most underrated author there is, her books are exquisite, the Finnikin and Froi books (and Quintana , when it is published ) are fantasy but this shouldn't put you off,  they are fantastic... i have all but Froi in kindle format if anyone wants,,,,

My love affair with Melina's writing goes way back to her first book, Looking For Alibrandi. Her new fantasy series is so fantastic. I've read Finnikin far too many times for a grown woman. Someone else posted that she is underrated...couldn't agree more. She is always on my to buy list when she releases a new book, I've never been let down!

(On the) Jellicoe Road by her is one of the best books I have ever read! She's an amazing author, and deserves to be more well-known than she is. I really liked Saving Francesca, but no other novels she's wrote have compared to Jellicoe Road. :)

I started my love affair with Marchetta recently but love every book of hers right from Searching for Alibrandi to Froi of the exiles. She is an amazing writer. I have all her ebooks in .pdf format if needed let me know :)
Happiness isn’t good enough for me! I demand euphoria!

I want to, but the last time I tried the book felt a bit disjointed to me and so I decided to put it off for the time being.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with this author. She's brilliant. For those of you who have given up on "On the Jellicoe Road", you should just plow on and you will be rewarded in the end. Guaranteed! It really is a very good novel.

Does anyone know where to find Quintana of Charyn now?  I just saw that it's not being sold on Amazon until March 2013.   :(
