I can't do it.
I just can't.
I tried. I DNF'd it yesterday and then picked it up cuz the book was expensive, I don't have the receipt, and I really like Marissa Meyer.
But nothing is happening!
Storywise this moves like a snail. The first 200 pages could have been a well-edited novella of maybe 70 pages.
Also, this story has been done before! It reminds me of Steelheart only in that book - THINGS ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
And another thing - you know that picture Marvel took a couple days ago of all the superheroes? Well, imagine someone writing about all of them in 200+ pages. That's right. TOO MANY CHARACTERS. How am I supposed to care about anyone when there are 10 characters on a page all with different abilities? I need a chart. I SHOULDN'T NEED A CHART.
WHY IS THIS BOOK SO LONG?????? It's 552 pages! Did she lose a bet?
I can't. No more.
