Yeah, the typical second book of a trilogy--a lot of detail than cliffhanger but not a whole lot of story 😕

Quite disappointing and almost didn't bother with last 20 pages.

It started with such promise but I struggled to care through most of it.

I should've known given the hype of this book that it wasn't going to be that good 💁‍♀️

overtheedge I totally agree! It started out so good..... 3w

Finished this in the wee hours this AM.

Eh, it was alright; though, I gotta say, the framework of the story was quite weak.

Tiffiney I didn't care for this one...was hard to stick it out and finish. 3w
C.Perone @Tiffiney Yes; it was like a roller coaster ride...it grabbed my interest, then lost it, etc. It was annoying to have it end with lost interest 😕 3w

Started reading this until I can get to b&n on Wednesday for Stephen King's new book. I like Palahniuk, but I'm not a fan of short stories; hence why it's been on my #TBR pile for 3+ years. Thought it'd be a good filler read, but, yeahhhhh it's not shaping up to be 😐

Reggie If I remember correctly the first story is about the comedian‘s kid and that one made me stop. Not because it was bad but it was just hurtful. 1mo
C.Perone @Reggie Yes, and you were smart to stop. That story is only decent read so far. 1mo

This actually wasn't a bad read; but it didn't live up to the promised story described on the flap.

The story itself described a very intelligent tinkerer, but not a scientist. And though her invention was brilliant I can see many reasons why the navy didn't fall over themselves trying to utilize it at the time that had nothing to do with the sex of the inventor. But that's the sole reason given🤷‍♀️

Finally! a book worthy of finishing 😊

A few slow spots just like @RamsFan1963 said, but overall a good story. The only thing that pissed me off at the end was the sheer blindness of Norra and Temmin to the very thing they liberated the Wookies from.

blurb

Hopefully, a book that I don't DNF because I'm getting kind up fed up with that

RamsFan1963 I thought it was enjoyable, though it did drag in places. Nothing bad enough to cause a DNF I hope. 2mo
C.Perone @RamsFan1963 I can deal with drag in places😊 So far it's proving to be finishable. Thanks ☺️ 2mo

It saddens me to say this, when I have loved so many of her others, but this book sucks 😔

After 150 pages I still have no idea what's going on or why

Beautiful cover though

Crazeedi I'm so glad someone else dnf, I read about as much as you did and thought maybe I'm missing something, could not get into it at all, and like you I've like her other works 2mo
C.Perone @Crazeedi Usually you know her characters off the bat, and have a sense of story immediately; but here, I felt like I was reading a first, unfleshed draft 2mo
Crazeedi @C.Perone yes you've hit the nail on the head, I couldn't figure out why I wasn't immersed in the story , but that is exactly what the beginning was like. Maybe it became cohesive later, but I just put it down 2mo
