I received this title for review from NetGalley.
I found this book really difficult to get into and because of that I chose to read reviews others had posted. It seemed that everyone else was loving this book, which left me wondering why wasn’t I?
I couldn’t warm to the Baroness at all, she comes across as shallow, nasty, and spiteful. With reference, again, to other reviewers they all claimed to be loving the bad “guy” of the story. I found her an awful character and definitely could not find any reason to “love” her.
The story is all over the place, the book appears to have been translated into English and it’s not a great translation. Don’t get me wrong, the book isn’t difficult to read, it’s just not great.
I want to stress that this review is based upon my personal experience of reading this book. I mention having read the reviews other reviewers left regarding this book and in no way am I mocking their responses to this book. Reading is a personal experience and if someone enjoys a book I did not, then there is nothing g wrong with that. I fully believe people should be allowed to share their own thoughts and feelings on whatever they have read, regardless of whether they enjoyed it or not.
Lastly, this story is to be continued, and whilst I haven’t given a glowing review of the first book and am interested in reading the next book to see where the story goes.
