What have I been reading this past week?
This is the last book in a trilogy that started out strong but really went downhill. I liked the idea of Ravi being able to see the Hindu Gods but they never really became anything but observers of his life. It got sort of boring.
This is a hard book to review without getting into spoilers. Overall, I get where they were trying to go with this book but I don’t think it worked. There are a lot of moving parts in this story and they didn’t really bring it together into one cohesive whole.
You have the story of the days leading up to Kezi’s arrest. You have the story of her sister, Happi, starting 3 months later. You have the story of a person who was also arrested the same day as Kezi. Each of these stories are interesting and well done. But then they kept adding more and more to the plot. I’m generally a fan of authors throwing in something unexpected but it didn’t work here. The other storylines didn’t get adequate time and space to come to natural conclusions. Everything got squished together in a very unsatisfying way.
I am sorry these both ended up being unsatisfying. One of the Good Ones sounded so promising. I hope you have a better reading week this week!
I’m sorry that neither of these books really worked for you. I hope you enjoy this week’s reading more. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
