When does it get started?,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Burning City (Hardcover)
Page 56, chapter 8. I know who the main character of the story is but I have known that from page 1. The rest of it is still a complete mystery and nothing has happened yet to keep me interested. As far as my understanding of book writing goes (note, I might be wrong), the idea is to hook your readers to the story as early as possible. This book totally fails to do so. It is probably very good once it's got going but I doubt my patience will last that long. A book desperately in need of a weight-watchers program to cut off the lengthy bits.
