Couldn't get into it - nothing interested me
on 27 October 2015
I wanted to like this book. I really tried. A few friends love them. But I found it utterly boring. I waded through half of the book before giving up because I had no interest in the plot, the characters or the world.
I love being engrossed in a fantasy world - have lived and dreamed Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Philip Pullman's stuff and others. But this didn't pull me in in the slightest. Maybe I didn't try hard enough, I certainly didn't really get what was going on. But I wasn't interested enough to care. Disappointing.
