My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I just don’t see myself finishing this book, at least not any time soon and I would rather focus on books I want to read. This was starting to put me into a bit of a reading slump; reading it felt more like a chore than something to do for pleasure. Once I started skimming massive amounts of text I knew there was no point in continuing.
As for my thoughts on specific aspects of this book. I don’t have much to say that hasn’t been said already. I wasn’t a fan of all the points of view because they just felt unnecessary. The world building and the character development were underwhelming and relied on tropes. I didn’t feel much chemistry between Dex and Andi, but it was clear they were on a romantic collision course. Even the technology felt rushed, and the descriptions of characters didn’t serve much a purpose other than to make them sound cooler.
Alright, I guess I do have one thing to say. I don’t know how something could be so saturated with descriptions and still leave me feeling lost. It was clear the authors had a vivid imagination for the galaxy and wanted to share it with me, but they spent so much time describing inconsequential settings, physical character traits, and dialogue tone, that some of the more necessary descriptions (and for that matter world building) was overlooked.
