2.0% "So far, it tries too hard and feels a little overwritten..."
17.0% "Meh. Still overwritten. Still a bit of a slog. I'm not as dazzled or enchanted by the book as the author wants me to be, and so everything creaks and grinds a bit for me..."
28.0% "Still overwritten and dreamy. The flow and rhythm are all wrong: it clunks and jars and creaks and sloshes through sticky mud. Completely not on my wavelength at all."
38.0% "Still not my wavelength. But now I am stubborn and want to finish it."
91.0% "Right, let's get this thing out of the way. And no thanks to you, scumbag reviewer on Amazon or Goodreads, who gave away the main theme of the second half of the book as if it was general knowledge. It detracted from the reading experience to know how their journey / quest would turn out. A dastardly bastard reviewer indeed. (Not sure where I saw it, but I will look for it, and "unhelpful" vote it, oh yes, I will!)"
