Reviews about historical, literary, classic, and other fiction. Miscellaneous book things.
I really wanted to like this book. The reviews of it seemed good, and the story sounded really interesting. The writing was certainly detailed, but it felt so flat, like there wasn't any emotion behind it. This made the people feel like robots, and the story was just too predictable. It also felt like convenient little details were tacked on everywhere, without a proper backstory. A lot of telling, not showing, basically. Very disappointing.
