Book Review: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

By: Leah Rippy/Sophomore Writer

In her novel Carry On, Rainbow Rowell tells the story of the most powerful mage to ever live, Simon Snow.

Simon Snow is the chosen one, and is going through his last year at Watford School of Magicks. Upon arriving at Watford, Simon realizes three things; his roommate and worst enemy is missing, his girlfriend is breaking up with him, and to top it all off, there is a monster running around the United Kingdom eating magic. Simon has to save his relationship, his future, and the world of mages, all while attending classes on evocation. Thankfully he has his best friend, Penelope, to keep him from doing anything too brash.

I would rate Carry On 4 out of 5 stars. Anyone who loves magic, monsters, and mystery will love the story of Simon Snow. Whether you’re a returning fan of Rainbow Rowell, or just starting to read her fiction, this story will capture your imagination (And you might begin to understand why Cather loved Simon Snow so much).
