It was decent. Good, in fact. It just didn't really leave me really wanting more. I mean, I want to know what happens next, but not that urgent. The author is great with details, but maybe a little too much? Do we really have to know that Min DROPPED her chop 'o sticks, PICK the up, and bonk her head? Wouldn't it be easier to say 'I took some time to get my utensils' or something? Do we really need to know at all? Can we skip the conversation in the first place? The conversation was interesting enough, but I don't think we need THAT much information. For like, 75% of the book, Min is posing as a dead soldier still thought alive, for NO reason!! 'You sacrificed your life for me! I help you!' and the ghost of the dead soldier is like 'Ok! If you fail…I HAUGHT YOU FOREVER. MUAHAHA!' Ehm. Ok…(…(……)……)……(………(…………)…(………)…)… -_-
I understand that Min was on the battle cruiser the Pale Lightining for a long time, but do we actually have to hear her talk about scrubbing toilets so precisely for like 10% of the book? I little bit easier on the side stuff and more on the juicy steak you know! I don't know why the ghosts didn't savagely attack Min, Hanuel, and the goblin (I can't remember her name! It's on the tip of my tongue, but I can't remember!). Maybe because of Jun is with them? Maybe the ghosts sense something different? Maybe there is an aura that's different about Min than others? Will there be answers? Why am I so confused? I don't…know?(??(??(??)????)?)??(????)
I loved the author's craft, however. It's a perfect blend of sci-fi, Korean mythology, and a young child's struggle against the world of the unknown. I would reccomend it, but it's sometimes reeeeeeeeeeeeeally slow, while such at times, it goes veeery quickly. It all comes together and it's all a happy ending. Meow!
Peace out, and wear your seatbelt!
