My Thoughts:

I gave this until the 13% mark to draw me in. It never did. The writing was just fine, there were no problems or anything I could point a finger to and say “Therein lies the the problem.” No, this was just like the previous 2 books in that it bored me. I might have put up with that for those 2, but now? Not so much.

If you liked the previous books I suspect you’ll like this one as well. I was pretty meh about them and nothing in this book was any different, so I was pretty meh about it as well. I’ve got about 120 books on my Oasis and around 100-150 books in Calibre that I plan on reading so I am not going to waste my time reading something that I am not enjoying.

It doesn’t help that besides Dracula, I am not a vampire fan, nor am I a big post-apocalyptic fan.

    I think I have a copy of the first book. I could read it, but I think I’ll re-read Dracula instead in October.

  4. While I managed to finish book 1, although it was a bit of a struggle – and I DO like my vampires! – book 2 ended in the DNF pile for the same reasons that compelled you to abandon this one: lack of empathy for the characters and a pervasive sense of boredom. Pity, since the premise was a great one…

  5. Good call! Sometimes I am stubborn and push for 20% but I say this was probably for the best. A for effort now 😉

  7. […] read. Approximately 4660 pages read. That number is a bit fuzzy since I DNF’d Cronin’s City of Mirrors and didn’t keep a true total of what I’d read of it. Down a bit from last month, but […]
