♫Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac --I found this by searching the word everywhere…seriously though this video is crazy and Idk…it reminded me of the book, with the tricorns it looked liked some kind of tropical port for pirate ships to dock. Kind of crazy, kind of confusing…kind of something♫
The concept of time-travel in this story is genius, but to pull it off, you need to do more than just say "it happened." I feel like it was never explained well enough for me to believe. The characters were mostly unlikable and Nyxia, despite loving her name, was just a fickle girl who didn't know what she wanted from one minute to the next. The only character I found remotely interesting is Kash.
As for the narration, I'm beginning to think I don't really care for Kim Mai Guest as a narrator, her voice is too bland sounding to hold my attention. She's fine in an ensemble cast of characters (like One Of Us Is Lying), but on her own, not so much…as least for me. I couldn't keep my mind in the story, and I almost DNF'd this more than once.
