Good book

This book is a little slow at the beginning and has a surprise ending. You should read it.

Great book

This book takes turns not expected. Didn't want to put this book down.


I read the first two chapters or so of this book, then jumped to the last couple chapters to see how the plot plays out, and to be honest, I don't feel like I missed much in between. The voice of the main character does not feel like an authentic voice; instead, it feels as though the author is trying too hard to make the character seem real. The characters aren't all that interesting, the world seemed pretty standard fantasy world fare, and the plot is predictable. Overall, not a great choice.
