It's sad that the book starts off so strongly and then fizzles to nothing. I am going to pass since I would have a problem finishing a story steuctured like this.
"I don't want to dance with the Devil
I just want to confront him at a table
And I don't need your hollow promise
I just need to look you in the eyes and tell you
You didn't help me make it"

This seemed like an interesting story at the start. But sorry to see that the plot lost its way. Great review!

Hi LuciusM, it is a nice review of the novel, that you discover the basic events of the plot and the main character's world. Have a great time.

I would actually like reading about a story before industrialization. This one about a candle maker seems interesting. Nice review.

It is sad that the book's exposition stage of the plot appeared later after the climax. Such a mix-up is often discouraging, especially if the story was initially interesting. Thank you for your honest review., 💫
