あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.

In the start of an all-new series, the best-selling author of Uprooted and Spinning Silver introduces you to a dangerous school for the magically gifted where failure means certain death - until one girl begins to rewrite its rules.

Enter a school of magic unlike any you have ever encountered.

There are no teachers, no holidays, friendships are purely strategic and the odds of survival are never equal.

Once you’re inside, there are only two ways out: you graduate or you die.

El Higgins is uniquely prepared for the school’s many dangers. She may be without allies, but she possesses a dark power strong enough to level mountains and wipe out untold millions - never mind easily destroy the countless monsters that prowl the school. 

Except, she might accidentally kill all the other students, too. So El is trying her hardest not to use it...that is, unless she has no other choice. 

Wry, witty, endlessly inventive and mordantly funny - yet with a true depth and fierce justice at its heart - this enchanting novel reminds us that there are far more important things than mere survival.

Excellent

A Deadly Education is a tense, fiercely unique narrative with characters you care about rapidly in a very grim setting. I look forward to everything Naomi has in store in this universe for the audience.

The narrator did a great job too, very emotive performance.

If I were forced to give a critique it would be that I personally prefer more descriptions of the surroundings than was provided, but I'm fairly certain that was deliberate to make the reader feel more closed in as it is not a static trait in her other books.

One of my favorite authors, but...

Naomi Novik is a great author. Uprooted is one of my favorite all time books...but this was disappointing.

It is an example of a great idea that probably should have stayed an idea. I was looking at some of the 5 Star reviews to try and find something good to say....but I don't think we read the same book.

Unable to Finish

I’ve just started this book, I really enjoy the authors other books but really can’t listen to an angry , jeering , aggressive teen voice for a whole book/ yes I know what age group it’s aimed at. Will be returning in favour of the Kindle edition. I’m sure the story is great the telling of it no.

Well imagined setting

I really enjoyed this book, inspite of the narrator. Not sure if it was an accent or just odd pronounciations but what ever it was, it got a bit annoying overall.. With a different narrator I’d have given this full marks. The setting is well imagined and the main character interesting and relatable, even to a mature adult. I am really looking forward to the next intallment.

Excellent story and narration

The story is a refreshing take on magical education, it has all of the factional intrigues between years, student types and 'house' affiliations, but is a lot less saccharine. The narration is excellent, (I have high-register hearing loss through poor career choices which makes me wary of some female narrators), but Anisha Dadia has such a good tonal range that she conjures a compelling protagonist whilst being perfectly audible. I loved the author/narrator combination of this audiobook and will buy the next instalments without hesitation!

Interesting story, not the perfect narrator

This is a very refreshing take on the School of Magic-trope! A perfectly wonderful unloveable heroine, and pupils from all around the world gathered in one (rather horrifying) school. Naomi Novik definitely knows how to tell a good story, and this book is no exception!
Unfortunately the reader was not the best. She isn’t BAD as such, but her British accent is not quite right (she sounded so very much like an American taking care to pronounce their Ts and Aah:s, but not thinking about the other sounds). The narrator is a good reader, though, and has a very pleasant voice.
Definitely recommended!

.

Loved this take on the magical school trope, found myself really rooting for the characters and will definitely be purchasing the next one when it comes out. I agree with some other reviewers that the narrator's inflection and emphasis can be distracting at times but she does the swearing brilliantly!

I didn't expect this from Naomi Novik

I didn't like this at all. It was not the performance as I've read in other reviews. It was the main character, who was utterly annoying, the school itself, that didn't make any sense and the lack of development in the secondary characters.

New twist to the Teenage College Story

I was filled with both joyus hope and trepidation as I started this latest work from Naomi Novik. Uprooted and Spinning Silver is some of the best fantasy I know. The series following the dragon Temeraire started equally good - but somewhere along the way it became drivel. Poorly written and drawn out...

A Deadly Education is a promising new start. There is one or two places where the story feels forced - but I am again excited about Novik's storytelling.

Devilish fun and perfectly read.

I'll update this review on the content. First point on the reader. Excellent. They found someone with a cultured English accent (characters mother) with a touch of Indian (as the characters father was). The reader captures the humour as well as the drama of this story.

Fantastic magical angry dangerous fun!

A really good listen. Big fan of Neomi Novik. The level of character building is really nice. I enjoyed the angry perspective of El. Also, an amazing ending that makes me want moreeee!
