world was such an interesting one to explore I ve got to say on this butwas such an interesting one to explore I ve got to say on this but mind is just asdfghjkl after reading it so that s all I ve got for now So where to begin Hype as we now it is uite futile The buzz it ignites is amazing They create this excitement within you that has your mind wandering to all of the possibilities and direction the book can go in Because of the hype I assumed I would enjoy this book I m uite an easy to please reader so usually when a book is hyped up I tend to enjoy it Or even if I don t I will feel indifferent But this book brought about a rage within me I hated it with every fibre of my being You may be thinking that because of the fact I succumbed to the hype it ruined the experience for me That was not the case at all I always go in weary but with a sense of optimism when it comes to hyped books As for the book well everything was wrong with it for me Other than the slight addictive uality it had which died for me after I passed the halfway point this book was weak in every sense of the word From the protagonist to the characters the plot and the world building There was no development or growth that brought those aspects to live not even the writing The story line started off uite tragic with Jude s parents being brutally მოგონებები შეფიცულთა რაზმზე killed off from the bat From that I was expecting someind of revenge story or emotionally harrowing character development because to witness that when you re young will obviously take a toll But no That wasn t explored Right off the bat our main goes on to enter off the bat our main character goes on to enter The Heart of Business kind tournament she has no experience in whatsoever There s nothing ingrained within her to take on this challenge no power she embodies intellectually or physically Whilst it took place all Iept thinking about was how flimsy the battle was neither did it feel complete Just rushed Thus this was the narrative the story carried on Our main character had no proper background that we as readers were exposed to in order for us to connect with no experience and neither had she trained to gain any of it throughout the course of the book Everything was just thrown characters and world at the reader and felt as if we were expected to go with the flow and further clarification was not given or explained Event after event took place with no sense of proper progression of the overall plot No aspect to it whatsoever felt substantial or concrete I got angrier as I read on and when it got to the last 50 odd pages I refused to carry on because I couldn t bring myself to care one bit It wasn t that it was even mediocre the whole book felt pointless to me INITIAL REACTION REVIEWWell I m pretty sure my soul just died No it is deadI haven t hated a book this much since Caraval and I don t tend to hate books that often I m indifferent most of the time and I do enjoy a lot of the ones I read But this god I have no wordsReview to come when I can feel againUgh I reuire book 2 immediately Holly is the Faerie ueen WHAT IS THIS BEAUTY Someone please revive me because I am dead from the awesomeness of this bookIf you want to read a masterpiece of character and story look no further The Cruel Prince showcases Holly Black at the top of her game it is exuisitely dark and delightfully wicked set in an intricate world of highlighted sensation the taste of faerie fruit the feel of rich decayin.
