The real world is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.
Just an occasional lurker here. I won't post much blog content until/unless Booklikes institutes Privacy options.
I'm putting this one aside for now, I'm not sure it's for me.
First of all what I do like: The characters are interesting, I like their interaction and the dry, dark humor.
The issue here for me is the writing. It's not bad, and much of it is just fine, but in places I find it confusing and a bit disjointed.
In places the writing is in short, choppy sentences. There have been times I had to read a sentence two or three times to understand what it was talking about. Occasionally I still was left clueless.
A couple of times, using this technique, what had happened was unclear until it was better explained soon after. I found that a bit frustrating.
So far there hasn't been much world-building, but I know that can work, especially considering there's much of the book left, and there was enough there that I didn't have an issue with that.
I think maybe the writing style isn't for me. I'm putting it aside for now, may give it another try later.
Thanks to NetGalley for providing the review copy.
