‘Not My Kinda Book’
No, I did not enjoy this book. It’s one of those rare occasions that I was really keen to finish the book so I could move on to a book I’d enjoy more. If I’m reading a book I enjoy, I never want it to end.
It’s not the worst book I’ve ever read (thankfully books that get 1/5 are a rarity) but it certainly wasn’t fun.
Imagine someone taking all about the prospect of a mission to Mars, and making it dull.
Or, imagine delving deeply into the thoughts and actions of a bunch of dislikable people you don’t really care about.
Or, imagine the very basic things you’d have done in their situation which would kinda destroy the premise of the book
OK, some people really love this book. Really, really love it. And that’s fair enough - good for you, if you’re one of them! It’s just really not my kind of thing. So if you’re taste in books aligns with mine, you might be better skipping this one. If everything I type is anathema to you, this may be your kind of book.
