I really liked the character of Katsa and the central relationship in this book. In some ways, she's a typical 'tough girl out of touch with her feelings' but there's a lot more depth here than I expected and I appreciated the ways that the narrative does and doesn't require her to change. It's a little unusual to read a high fantasy book and not feel like I know what's coming next, but with 'Graceling' nothing was quite what I expected. On the negative side, the pacing and structure of the book are a little odd (though I think that contributed to the unexpectedness, so it's less of a flaw than it would be if I hadn't enjoyed most of the plot developments.
