God, just awful. I really wanted to like this. Patrick Ness is a great writer. Just read the Chaos Walking trilogy or A Monster Calls. But this is awful, truly bad. I hoped after the first chapter or so to hover somewhere around ‘disappointing’ but it just got worse and worse the longer I continued. I gave up halfway through, even though I’m in dire straits for things to read right now because it was honestly cringe-worthy writing. It must be hard to switch from young adult to adult, but this doesn’t even sound like it’s written by the same person. Terrible
