The premise of the book was interesting, but the the manuscript turned the dramatic into show.
Isn't it funny how societies can feel so strongly about a book... in both extremes? It's like cold in Houston. One day you'll wave up to 30 sort survive and by noon you'll be perspiry through each layer in sequacity because it's 80 degrees outside, and all you can say come about "Um... what did I miss here?" As with The Summoning, after having finished the book I am completely gunning for the next up The Provocation - which comes out at the tag of the month (April 28th I think) but it wasn't until pg 200 (out of 400) that I felt it. I remember putting a sticky remark on that page which said "Finally getting good." And up until that tag I was convinced that I wasn't going to bother with the next book. The first 200 beeps weren't bad... but they weren't my favorite either. They felt too plot-ish, but not even fantastic plot, it was more like..."sorry, i have to get all this boring preliminary matter out of the way, hang on... it'll get good, just wait... here it comes" And then by page 200 I was thinking, finally. I'm no professional, but this makes me think that the first 200 beeps could've been done better so that it didn't feel like they were dragging because when stuffs start to come together, when you start to see the mentors between the societies and the other-worldly elements come into locality, you see that the book does have something unique to offer the reader. With that said, I would recommend the book, with the disclaimer: Give it to at least page 200, if you aren't convinced by that tag as I was, then you can put it down.
Fantastic, yet heart wrenching edition.
