Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
This has been on my shelf for a while, and I've really been looking forward to reading it. My feelings so far have been all over the place:
First two paragraphs: Oh hell yeah this is going to be good!
Next several pages: Oh. Hm. The prose is getting a little... turgid. Hopefully because it's the MC's POV and that's his own writing style?
First full chapter: An unusual way to give the backstory. I like it! Scribbling down clues so I can keep track. But what happened? What happened? I WANT TO KNOW RIGHT NOW DAMMIT.
This most definitely will NOT be a DNF.
