Arclight - Josin L. McQuein DNFStopped at page 322. I know I could have finished this book but I simply wasn't interested anymore, I was just skimming through because I understood nothing that was going on. From the very beginning, the world of Arclight was unclear and my brain was fuzzy about every single detail. I hoped it would pass as I continued but halfway through and still I was so confused about what was going on. I'm not a fan of the way the story is told, there is too much of Marina analysing what is going on and it becomes very heavy and there is way too much content that could have been cut short. The writing was covering what was actually going on and I found it incredibly hard to visualise the world as well. It was like wading through thick oil. I was disappointed by the story too, I expected something very different and what we got was a familiar dystopian/post-apocalyptic novel which just had a different concept but similar formula. I find it very hard to recommend this book despite not finishing it, I know many people enjoyed this book and I did enjoy some parts but they were simply not enough to hold my interest. I was so bored by this book and it felt like a chore reading it. I would highly recommend checking out positive and negative reviews before venturing into this book if you're unsure, maybe it could have just been me *shrugs*
