Book Review: Gathering Light by Jennifer Donnelly - Reviewed by Romi Foster (22 Mar 2012)
I won a copy of A Gathering Light to review for Allen and Unwin a few years after it was published and though it wasn't like any other books I had read at the time and was my first YA book with a murder storyline, I found that I really enjoyed it. Mattie is a truly inspirational main character, her love of books and lust for learning is something that isn't seen very often in characters right now and to read this book I really connected with her. The murder in the story, that of a young woman who was supposedly murdered by a man who was playing that he loved her, is based of true life and that was a really interesting fact; though the murder is a small part (it happens at the small hotel on the river that Mattie takes a job at) of the story, it is quite confrontal and it isn't the only thing. There is a sex scene and it's quite a graphic one, which wasn't really needed I don't think, and those two things both loose a few points for me. Overall...
