The Poppy War
(The Poppy War #1)
by R.F. Kuang

This is a wonderful, violent, emotional, tragic, excellent book! This is about Ren who starts out as an orphan and is forced upon a family and is treated horribly. She is to be married off to an old ugly guy but has money. Her only hope is to study to get into the academy to be a warrior. She gets a friendly gentleman to teach her. She studies hard and makes it. She is smart but not trained in battle skills.
Things are very rough for her there until she finds out she has a gift that is worth more that battle. She has a skill to learn to be a shaman.
This is full of heartbreak nearly all the way through but I just kept reading it anyway. I couldn't stop. There is also so much unbelievable violence. Rape is mentioned numerous times. Graphic violence. I wanted to stop reading but I had to know what was going to happen.
It has some fantasy, adventure, almost non-stop action, all types of emotions, and lots of rage. I felt exhausted by the end of the book.
I liked the book but I don't think I can follow the series. It was a good book but I don't want to put myself through this again and again. ( )

The Poppy war combines a bunch of different popular sci fi/fantasy tropes in one story. There's an orphan plucked from obscurity, a school for special people, political battles, a complicated war in the past and a difficult one in the present. I like how fast paced the story was - setting the stage then advancing forward to keep the story going. I'll definitely pick up the 2nd book when it's released later this year. ( )

A great read.

I really enjoyed this book. For me the strongest bit was the first part. I found that the most interesting. The second part dragged in some areas abu was none the less strong. I found this third bit somewhere in between. It had some harrowing scenes that are still burnt into my mind and some amazing writing though I didn't enjoy reading it as much as I did the first part. Overall this book was amazing and I would reccomend it highly. It's the first book I've read all the way through since lockdown began and ims really glad this is was it. It was gripping.

I also lived the MC Rin as she was interesting, yet deeply and obviously flaws in some ways. Her character grew throughout the novel but I can tell she has a long way to go and it nice to read about someone who felt like they could be a real person with real fults. ( )

I forgot at times I was reading a fantasy novel. ( )

This is the story of a disadvantaged young girl who makes it into the country's top military academy. Once she gets to the academy, she is an outcast but still manages to become top of her class. In her last year at the academy, she makes some bad decisions and gets assigned to the outcast military unit. The book then follows this military unit as they try to save their country from invading forces. This book was well written but too formulaic for my tastes. The development of the main character towards the end of the book was over the top and, ultimately, unbelievable. ( )
