“Most definitely NOT a book for everyone! It's raving reviews by other led me to read this book, and I can not bring myself to give it more than 2 stars. Yes, the writing and idea was lovely , but essentially the book is so strange that you had about enough of it by the time you reach the middle. Chapters are short and interwoven , jumping back and forth in time, possibly to try and make some sense of the story at all. The only thing that kept me reading was that I had hoped for a revealing ending, and even that disappointed. Yes, the book is very different than anything else Ive ever read, but the magic it offers wears off quickly, too quickly.”
I couldn't have said it any better! I agree 100%.
All the elements that you claimed you did not light about the book were what made me LOVE it! I loved the complexity, the fast pace, the different timelines, the ending, and so much more!
I completely agree. I've just started it and all of those components, including the time jumps and different kinds of chapters, are definitely part of what makes me love it. The book is magical!
