rameau's ramblings

A reader who’ll try anything once, including bad books in search of good ones. Eclectic as her tastes are, she tends to gravitate to historical romances, realistic contemporaries, and some fantasy novels.

Filed under: I wish I'd liked it better than I did

— feeling unhappy
Throne of the Crescent Moon - Saladin Ahmed

Things I liked:
• characters
• worldbuilding
• story


Things I didn't like:
• the prose


So that's that then. When the writing gets to your nerves, the characters start grating, the brilliant worldbuilding loses its shine and the story becomes one of those "why do I care again" tales.


I'd still recommend this to people wanting to read diverse fantasy, just not with the enthusiasm others have.
