My Honest Review:
**I received the ebook from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review**
The starracers was a book that i was really looking forward to read,it being the first book i ever received for review and all such,but unfortunately,I DID NOT FINISH it.I’m sorry to say that this book ,despite being a YA and Sci-Fi book,didn’t work for me.I swear I tried to keep going,but I really couldn’t.I made it till Chapter 12..which would be around 132 pages,that is almost one-fourth of the book,before I gave up on it…and really..I took about 2 weeks to read just those few pages.And truth be told,I did like the initial 1-2 chapters before it went downhill.
I will just state the reason why the book probably didn’t work for me.
The plot…..a part of the plot didn’t make sense to me…and the remaining part….they seemed too..cartoon-ish for my liking….and I couldn’t wrap my head around.The world that was created didn’t make sense to me..and I kept confusing between the characters…and there were terms within the pages that didn’t make sense either…and I don’t think they were explained anywhere in the initial chapters.
I didn’t feel attached to any of the characters either…they seemed too vague and far off.Like as I believe one-fourth of a book is really enough to get into the plot and attach at least a bit to the characters…but as much as I tried,I couldn’t do that with this book.
That’s really all I can say about this book.And I don’t actually plan on picking up this book again anytime in the future,cause I seriously don’t think it would work.
