There is always an amount of fear when picking up something that is so popular, has mob mentality caused everyone to overlook some flaws? Am I going to be disappointed because how can anything live up to the hype? With thoughts like this swirling around my mind, I picked up Throne of Glass. The first book in one of the most popular YA series out at the moment.
I'm delighted to say those fears were vanquished by some excellent story telling and compelling characters.
No seriously, what did I just watch?
Watching The Maze Runner last year as an enjoyably stupid experience, not on the level of Divergent which we saw with a cocktail in hand, but still fun. Although through out the entire movie there is this awareness at the back of you head that no answer will be satisfactory to setting, a nagging voice that is made worse by the fact it's a known trilogy.
Sure enough the visceral excitement of the group of teens trying to escape and survive this maze is met with an ending that... is so stupid. Unbelievably so.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
