Flawed Translation

2 stars

I’d love to say the main reason I didn’t like this book was the translation, which was absolutely horrendous, but the story itself was extremely dated in ways that were quite uncomfortable to read through.

Primarily though the translation was what kept me out of sync. There were moments where it genuinely felt like I was reading through a thesaurus. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it did not fit the tone or voice of the story at all.

The ending is abrupt, but..

4 stars

I agree with other reviews I've seen on here that the ending for this book leaves a bit to be desired, and is incredibly abrupt. I just don't think that takes enough away from the characters and world building that led up to those final moments. I thoroughly enjoyed my brief time in the world Schwab builds around Gallant. If anything I want more of it, but I'll take this glimpse.
