Each Friday I'll feature one of my favorite books or a book I read in the last week and come up 5 words to describe it. View it as a super mini review. This week I'm featuring:
I finished this last Sunday during a reading marathon to finish off my reading during Bout of Books 8.0. Here are the five words to describe it:
Bizarre: As in very odd. Because this is a supernatural/paranormal book, the reader is expected to make some pretty crazy leaps of faith. The characters, besides the humans, were just bizarre as is the world the inhabit.
Confusing: I had a hard time following this book. There were so many different elements, between the otherworldly characters that I couldn't wrap my head around to the world building descriptions, to some of the plot-lines. I stayed pretty confused until the second half of the book.
Unique: This book was totally outside my comfort zone. I found it to be very unique and I haven't come across any other books like it. Maybe others who read more supernatural/paranormal books won't find it very different, but I have never read anything like it before. This is not your typical vampire/zombie/werewolf/fairy/angel book.
Likeable: In general the characters were very likable. I didn't LOVE any of them, and those characters that you were supposed to dislike, I did indeed dislike them.
Intriguing: After a bit of a slow start for me, I did find the book to be ultimately intriguing. I didn't know where the story was going to go, and I remained interested in finding out what happened. This was the first in the series, so while I will probably pick up the second book to see what happens, I won't be rushing out to get it either.
