Definitely struggled to finish this one, as there's hardly any plot advancement. The performances were as good as the rest so far, but this book is down right boring and easily the worst of the lot so far.
Very hard to get through. Great story, not so great writing. this book is just incredibly full of all the long-winded clichés endemic to the series. It seems like it's made up almost entirely of them.
Think of something mentioned in the other books with any frequency and you will find it here on every page. Stout wool, misogyny, intolerably long, detailed descriptions of clothing and settings that add absolutely nothing to understanding of the people, the places, or the story. it's all here in abundance. if you make it to the last few chapters the story will start to move again but until then it's rough going.
This book was good. It has a lot of Matt in it which who is among my favorite characters. I think it feels like it ends randomly though. Without a climax.
Ignore 95% of these reviews. It's almost like one amateur critic decided this book as a complete waste of time then 50 other followers decide to rewrite the same exact review just worded differently. If you are a fan of the series you will enjoy the story and feel a bit lost if you skipped this book, like so many suggest.
I love this series, don't get me wrong. but it is such a long series. it's a little difficult to push through. but I need to finish it. it's a live gate relationship. way more love than hate.
Addicted to books and plan on feeding that addiction . . . a lot.
Not sure what else to say. I probably could have skipped this book and continued on quite well. The only thing of consequence that happened was done in less than 30 seconds just before the end. I was probably overly generous with the 2 stars for the story but I do like the characters.
