it was ok
bookshelves: never-finished-reading
Recommended for: no one

I can honestly say I can't bring myself to finish this book. It's not from lack of trying, but there's too much going on I can't bring myself to enjoy it. I really liked "Glass Books of Dream Eaters" but this one just seems to drag. It's like the convoluted plotlines from the first book get even more twisted and confusing and it's hard to follow what is exactly going on. There's too much explination / justification of why certain things are going on rather than plot moving foward so the reader can enjoy it all. It feels like too much, too fast and there's futher embellishing on facts that don't need more embellishing.

I'm actually quite sorry about this book. I was really looking foward to it after reading the first one. Just after getting half way though, I can't keep reading.
