I was recommended this book by a close friend, who was thoroughly enjoying it at the time. Unfortunately I didn't share the same view point.
The premise of the book is wonderful and the the character development is just great. I just struggled with the flow and scale of the narrative, plus the ending was very very lack lustre. The underlying issues are never resolved, am I to assume everyone just gets along.
I hate to criticise as the idea behind the story is so wonderful and the book has some great moments. I would just would have liked more context regarding the story and greater emphasis placed on some of the EPIC moments, which are simply referred too instead of specifically described.
Maybe its just me, but i wasn't feeling it.
If your reading this and trying to decide on what to read next, might i suggest Red Rising Trilogy by David Pierce. Those books were simply amazing and very easy to read.
