Seemed rushed. Found 5 different spelling/grammar errors I would expect an editor at a publisher like Little Brown to catch. Was the pace crazy to match the podcast/digital/twitter pace or just a rushed story? The ending was hazy. Fun quick thriller with some issues

LiteraryinLititz Interesting! I am going to start this after I finish my current book. If I spot the typos/errors too that will drive me nuts. We shall see. 3w

Alright people. I don‘t get it. I heard so many *magical* thugs about this book and it‘s just feeling meh to me. Am I crazy?

Emily92Bibliophile I felt the same when I started it last year. Couldn‘t get into it - “meh” is the right word for my experience. Might go back and try it again, but on audio this time? 7mo
KirstieE This one fell flat to me. I couldn‘t understand why everyone was obsessing over it when I found it boring ... I felt bad feeling that way 😂 you‘re not alone ! 7mo
SarahSaysRead I liked it when I read it, but not nearly as much as it's hyped. 7mo
Cheshirecat913 I loved the scenery, atmosphere and the whimsical nature of the book. 7mo

Anyone else listened to these KL Slater books? The lead up and final "twist" just don't match for me. I love the tension and build up but the big climax point falls flat. Anyone else? Or am I picky and need to calm down?

So in love with this series! I'm new to fantasy - can anyone recommend a similar series? I've already got my eye on the Throne of Glass set...

Dark Matter | Blake Crouch

Absolutely fantastic! I just devoured this book. It's the perfect balance of thriller and science fiction. The best part is it's not a sci-fi book for sci-fi's sake: it uses the genre to tell a poignantly human story. Cannot recommend it enough!

Overall a great story. The first half of the book has great pace and energy- I was devouring it. By the second half I was ready to wrap it up. The ending was pretty clear by that point. Not my favorite Atwood but still absolutely worth reading.

"Panic of a rat in cage" Atwood making clever references to 1984 and making me squeal!

Anyone else having a hard time with the pace? I can usually buzz through a book in a couple of days...but this is exhausting. Beautiful, but exhausting.

Bookish_B Yes. Partially it's my fault. I started the book when I knew I didn't have a ton of time to really sit down and read it and I've been reading a page here and two pages there. But this is the kind of book that requires lot more attention that that. It is beautiful though and over the weekend I sat down for large chunks of time with it and found I enjoyed it more. Still, progress is not as fast as I'd like! 3y
Kajohnson @Bookish_B and I feel so obligated to finish it because I got it in my book of the month subscription. Ugh! 3y
Bookish_B Yes! That was one of my BOTM picks too! How far into it are you? I definitely struggled at the beginning too & thought about putting it aside. I'm about 220 pages in now and glad I stuck with it. I'm all in now 👍🏼 3y
Kajohnson @Bookish_B I'm put it down at about 130. Sounds like I should keep trudging along! I'm gonna balance it with something lighter 3y
Bookish_B @Kajohnson I just finished it and loved it but for sure it was not the easiest of reads. My next book DEFINITELY will be something lighter 😊 3y

Flew through this book in one day. Absolutely loved the twists and turns. The story is told in such a sharp, clean way that describes emotions and turmoil so well.
