So far this feels pallid and soulless, like a dim reflection of a book, or like someone is telling me about a much better book without including the bits that make it come to life. I picked this up because it was compared favorably to Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, but I'm not feeling the resemblance.

I don't know why I'm struggling to finish this book. It's certainly gripping. I guess all the main character's bad decisions are grating on me a bit.

This reminds me strongly of Patricia A. McKillip. Mostly in good ways.

Fun so far. Very Gaimanesque.

Norse Mythology

Sean
Sean is 55% done with The God Eaters
This feels self published. It's a very good self-published novel, don't get me wrong. But it could have used an editor's touch.

Someone needs to tell this author that reverse racism isn't a thing.

I'm disappointed at how inelegant this book's mythos is, and how little sense it makes. Kind of just waiting for it to be over at this point.

Kind of fun so far. A little naive and disorganized, but not terrible.

Really not in the mood for this awkward hetero love connection. I hope he dies bravely and she grows up to fall in love with someone with a personality.

Trying to read this again. What is it about this book that fills me with so much agonized dread?

How many everyday black people does a story need to have to cancel out two Magical Negroes™? (There may be more. I haven't finished the book yet, after all.)

Dear Justin Cronin: speaking as a librarian and as a kid who grew up frequenting (and volunteering at!) multiple Riverside County Library System branches: There is no way RCLS is using date-stamped cards in pockets as part of their circulation process IN 2016. Sheesh.

Really hoping Liath's abuser/rapist dies soon (and horribly) so we don't have to endure him anymore. *shudders*

I'm 2/3 of the way through this and all I can say is Helen Oyeyemi is amazing and I have no idea what is going on.

Having trouble coming up with a reason to finish this. It is certainly not holding my attention at the moment.

Having more and more trouble tolerating the two straight male POV characters. :-/
