Roses And Rot

I was expecting something different. And this fell into the situation where it took too long before anything truly began.

Something about the book kept me curious. Even as I still don’t really care much about the story. The characters here are flat, lacking in anything charming that makes them stand out.

The story doesn’t make any sense. And it doesn’t even give some nominal hints as to what it happening. Some idea or explanation. The book was merely drowned in so much description that it made almost no sense.

And none of it really had anything to contribute to the main storyline. It is too slow, and even the middle didn’t seem to pick up.

Marin and Imogen have a classic good relationship. I don’t see anything deeper than that. I don’t really get into her mind and understand her troubles, neither do I really know what is she. She was never established as a character to me, and as such failed to really impress me.

Overall, this could have been so much more.
