Yeah, I think we need to talk about this one. I'll quote my last status update from GR here:
Finished. Verdict? Not good - actually rather mediocre. I think it had a potentially great idea, one that could really resonate for thematic, but if I had to describe this novel in two words, it would be "petty" and "shallow." Mostly to do with its presentation despite lighter moments.
*exhales slowly* Yeah, I'll have a tough review to write for this. Maybe others will feel differently once it releases.
Too many issues. I wouldn't recommend this, but I am interested in seeing what other reactions people are going to have with this for events and presentation.
I'll meditate over it a night and write a review sometime tomorrow. It'll be posted here for posterity on BL, but I'll wait to post it on my blog and other communities later.
