's review

it was ok
bookshelves: give-up

I'm that person who didn't think The Night Circus was awesome, yes. So I'm actually not surprised that I didn't enjoy The Starless Sea either. I liked the prose, but what got me bored was the lack of any action (or anything at all!). There's only so much lead-up one can tolerate before getting a peek at the meat of the story.

So instead of putting myself through it, I've closed the book. Life is too short!

Edited to add: This review by another reader captures exactly what I experienced with this book:
