Brian Hi Jennie! What do you think about this book so far?

message 2: by Jennie (new) - added it

Jennie I loved the first half, but the second half (post-apocalypse instead of mid- and pre-apocalypse) is very hard to get through. There's an awful lot of melodrama and too many characters to keep track of that I really don't care about. I want to finish it, but I keep getting side-tracked by books that are more exciting. I'm in the midst of a 300+ page side plot where nothing happens. It's kind of frustrating.

Brian I felt the EXACT same way. It was extremely difficult to get through. The story does get better near the end. If you look at my review comments you can see where it gets better (at least where I think it gets better).

BTW Thanks for friending me!

Jennie Thanks for the tip! I think if it gets completely intolerable I'll skim until I get to the interesting bits.
