Advent by James Treadwell
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I received a copy of Advent through a First Reads giveaway.
I was really looking forwards to reading Advent but in the end I felt rather disappointed. The story started off well but I quickly lost interest and found myself getting bored. There was an awful lot crammed into the book that honestly I felt would have been better left out.
The pacing is really slow and I found myself skimming a lot as there was nothing happening. The book is beautifully written but it's over written and overly descriptive. There was pages and pages used to describe events and things that really were not important to the story.
It felt like I was always waiting for something to happen and constantly checking my reading progress to see if I was actually getting anywhere with the book.
