    The style shows promising qualities while being a bit jumpy and chopped - for the lack of a better word - and especially in the beginning, the blatancy in the way we learn about the MC seems a bit forced and unnatural. However, the pacing is good, even though the general natural feel of the narration is lacking.

    Straightforward style, nice implications between the lines, solid plot. It should be everything you need in a novel. However, the info drops could be done with more subtlety, slower, as if they naturally just happened.

    This book is a bit odd. I mean it as the best possible compliment. There are times when I really can't tell whether something written here is a mistake or an intentional choice, and frankly, I don't think it matters. The general tone is curious, whimsical, and quite magical. It's a bit like a mythological creature with a very good grasp on humanity wrote it while trying to lure people into the influence of a magical aura. I'm down for that. The characters are good, but the strongest point of this book is the style, and that is a good thing in my eyes.

    Great book with a promising emotional hook and vividly real, psychologically believable characters. The FL could be someone you know and admire in real life. As marketable as this is, it is still a book written in quite an original manner, and I recommend it to anyone who needs to occupy their mind somehow.

    I'm telling you: if you want to read something heavy, something epic, something with swords, sandals, sorcery, and a thoroughly honed writing style with quirky humor, this is a great book for that. If you are looking for cheap thrills, this is the wrong book. This book will consume your life if you let it. Yes, I am shameless.

    Yeah, maybe not a good book to match with snacks! 😂😂😂

    okay, the only reason why I won't probably read too much of this is that if I take on another book with any romance for serious reading, my brain will explode. but it's good. the names of people and things give me a nice, mythologically inspired boost. the storytelling is vivid and with every sentence, there is something poetic about this world being pointed out. this book cured my headache and made me feel a lot better today. thanks for that.

    Sympathetic and lifelike characters. I liked the backdrop of normal...well, relatively normal stuff before the author started rolling the truly unusual events into the story. I think stories like this one need to establish that there could be a life with less weirdness, and then bring up the thing that changes everything. The pacing is good, the jokes are funny, and who doesn't relate to being distracted...my main problem was grammar but nobody's gonna care about that, right?

    Great and epic premise. I love how exact and precise the worldbuilding is and I was unable to find any sore or serious consistency errors. The style is epic action/adventure, and the stakes in the story seem high.
