Enchantment by Orson Scott Card
Fiction suggested by Lisa
A delightful novel including fantasy, romance, adventure, and difficult life decisions. I first read this story not knowing what it was about, and I enjoyed figuring some things out myself during the first few chapters. If you like to figure things out yourself, I suggest you don’t read any book descriptions or book covers before reading the book. However, the blurbs don’t tell you anything you won’t figure out yourself pretty near the beginning, so if you prefer to read them, it won’t really spoil anything.
“[His] prose is a model of narrative clarity; the author never says more than is needed or arbitrarily withholds information, yet even a simple declarative sentence carries a delicious hint of further revelation.” – The New York Times
