This is the best book ever written.
It’s the best book I have ever, and will ever, read. I know that in my heart.
It makes me want to turn to all of my five star reads and give them four or even three stars, for this is just unparalleled and incomparable.
It made me cry. It broke my heart and mended it again ten times in every chapter.
If you want a mystery, I recommend you to read this.
If you want an adventure, I recommend you to read this.
If you want a romance, I recommend you to read this.
If you want a book, I recommend you to read this.
To say that Dorothy Dunnett’s writing is in a league of its own would be a huge understatement, because it’s far better than that. It’s basically a sport of its own, played after rules no one else can ever understand, played with such excellence and brilliance that no one else ever dares to pick up the ball and give it a try. ‚Queen’s Play‘ is once again an embodiment of perfection, a book without a fault and an unparalleled piece of art.
To all the books I’ve loved before: I’m sorry. Really. But it’s over. We’re done. We just can’t see each other any more. It’s not because of you, honestly. It’s because of me. Because I’ve read something else, something special, and I just can’t forget it anymore. Never. I’ll never stop loving you, but it’s just not the same. I’m really, really sorry, but we’re done. I’ll never forget you, but Dorothy Dunnett’s „A Game of Kings“ is just perfect. We can still stay friends, though.
