did not like it

Boy was this book ever so dull. I'm glad I didn't pay for it that's for sure. The many hints and references to things we hadn't been introduced to yet was I'm sure meant to excite the reader's interest but it just annoyed me. There's only so many times I can stand hearing reference to something I know nothing about. Whilst we know what is going to happen in the end as outlined in the prologue, I still closed the book with a feeling of 'what just happened'. There were just a few moments that I found myself wanting to read on but these didn't redeem the book or quell my want to keep reading purely to finish it and move on to something better. Overall, the poorly introduced pieces did all fall into place but were written in such a way that it made it very difficult to enjoy.
