Top critical review
Couldn't get past the first 60 pages.
Reviewed in Australia on 1 July 2018
This review only relates to the start of the book as I couldn't get past the first 60 pages. This is so slow to start, and nothing really happens. Can't get past the first quarter of the book because it's so slow and pointless, and there's nothing all that intriguing so far about this to keep me reading. It's like, the fact the main character is a changeling is in the description, all the pointers are obvious and unoriginal, so why does it take so long for the main character to find out? There's no reason for the start to drag on as much as it does. We don't learn anything. The same things are just repeated over and over, like "I'm weird, I'm having panic attacks that obviously aren't panic attacks, my step-dad's abusive..." blah blah blah. Like we don't need so many examples and 'hints' for the same things. Other than that, the actual writing seems pretty good. Might try the second book because I don't think it'll be difficult to figure out what little happens in this one.
