My Rating: ★★★★☆
Disclaimer: I bought this book myself, all opinions are my own.
I read and listened to this book, switching between both.
“It was impossible, of course. But when did that ever stop any dreamer from dreaming?”
I’VE FINALLY FINISHED IT!!!! This has technically been a book that I’ve been reading for months.. I never really got drawn into it but with Hodder emailing and asking if I’d like to review Muse of Nightmares as it seemed my type of book I thought ‘Okay, if you think I’d like it, I’d better give this a proper go!’
I know how hyped this book is and that’s partially what’s been putting me off of this book but I decided to mainly listen to the audiobook of this so that I could get it done as I’ve had to go to work and I needed to get so much of this done! I really liked the narrator (may just be the US version of the audiobook) for this book, I thought that he was perfect for the book, he even did all different voices for everyone!
Like I said, the hype was so high for this book that I couldn’t actually understand why and I still kind of don’t.. I didn’t hate this book or anything I found it quite an interesting and unique read, I’ve not actually read anything like this, so lyrical and beautifully written with so many good quotes within. I don’t think I really got into this book until part three as that’s when the story got more exciting.
Throughout most of the book I enjoyed Sarai’s chapters more, I didn’t mind Lazlo’s chapters but I just enjoyed Sarai’s story and I loved the other characters in her point of view. I ended up liking Lazlo’s chapters a lot more in part four of the book!
I can’t say that this book was overly gripping or anything for me which is partially why it took me so long to read/listen to it. I thought I was only going to be giving this book 3 stars when I was half way through the book but part three got better and then part four was just OMG, the ending wasn’t what I had expected so I’m really glad I’m able to dive straight into Muse of Nightmares straight away!
What are your opinions on this book? Are you all for this one or not as fussed about it? Let me know!
