Splendor and Spark

Honestly I was hoping for more. Even as initially it seemed interesting until the next moment where it started to reveal all of its big issues.

For most part, I don’t even know what is going on. What is the point of all of this. There is just so much expanding without any corresponding situation that justifies their dire situation or explains just why are they in such a terrible situation.

Or even anything to develop the plot. All I got was a bunch of characters talking, Faris narrating a little more. Talking, narration. The pacing was awful.

There was virtually no tension, nothing to really give it something to keep me reading.

There just wasn’t enough content, there was even any meaningful development in this book. And that was almost two thirds through it. Even if it suffers from middle book syndrome it can’t be so bad that nothing happens at all.

Other than some people saying they want something. The only source has been a mere talk with someone. Yeah, there were no clever plans clever plays or any sort. It was as though it realized it had nothing to add and simply just tried to fill the pages.

And destroyed all of the goodwill and made me wonder whether books should be written in this manner with one book a year.
