Ohh.. this book! I will start off by saying that you have to be in the right mood/mind set to read this. Also, it helps if you can really focus and concentrate. A lot of people either hate or love this one. I am somewhere in the middle.
The writing was actually really beautiful and quite mesmerizing at times. That being said, it was also so complicated at times. There are many stories within stories. I think this is where this lost me. I think, I had some trouble really putting it all together in my head.
I really couldn’t quite connect to many the characters in this one, besides Zachery. I was really rooting for him. When I really connected to him, was when he became really frustrating with not knowing what was happening or going on… because SAME!!!
It’s a really slow paced book because you have to really soak it all in. You have to kind of figure things out as you are reading and that takes some time. I actually took a month break from this one. I was just not into it after getting about half way. When I picked it back up, the second half was a lot easier for me to get through. Again, I don’t know if it was my mindset or just the book got a bit better.
If you go in with the mindset that this will be a slow book with a lot of concentration needing, you might love it. It just wasn’t for me at this time.
