Weekly Reading #27

This was a slow reading week. I read the book the Glass Sentence by S. E. Grove. It’s part of a trilogy but I think that the first book is enough for me. I really liked the world. It’s a great world and there’s a lot to keep track of because it’s also a world where time doesn’t exist like it does now. Unfortunately, the rest of the book dragged. While I was interested in the book and the characters, I didn’t care enough to keep reading. That’s why this kid’s book that normally would have taken me a day or two at most to read dragged out for nearly a week.

I also have to say I was puzzled by the audience. There were some rather mature level ideas there. And I found myself thinking that the kids don’t really act like kids in this book. Add a bit of romance and this could easily have been an adult book. And I think that’s the bigger failing. I don’t really know who this book was for. And that’s a problem for me.
