What the critics are saying
Each POV is a piece in a larger puzzle and once you get through all those tales, you get the main plot which ends spectacularly. … Like my childhood come to life, except I can enjoy it as its written for adults.
Doyle continues to delve into what it means for one to be alive. Is it flesh and blood that determines whether or not one lives, or is it something else entirely? Carnival effortlessly explores that theme of life and living. One thing that I think Matt did better in this book is the way that some of these character’s stories hit harder emotionally this go round. Didn’t expect to feel the way I did reading this book (in a good way).
Sometimes in life, things just get overwhelmingly busy and I need a break. Matt Doyle has created the perfect place for respite. I love this dystopian world he has created.
Boundless Book Reviews
Get ready for a cast of personalities that come to life under the skill of Matt Doyle’s pen. Combining card games with battle strategies and personal quests, the deadly games are played, rather like watching the Gladiators of ancient times … Matt Doyle’s tale might seem to be gaming in prose, but I do NOT believe Carnival belongs in a niche type genre. Good writing that is filled with tension and continual action and interaction deserves to be read, enjoyed, thought about and shared. Take a walk into a fresh read and discover another talented author.
