A review by rashi
The Luminous Dead, by Caitlin Starling

Did not finish book. Stopped at 27%.
I had so much hope for this book, it had a great premise but for me the prose is just too removed and so full of boring detail of mundane things that I just couldn’t be bothered keeping up with it, by the tenth chapter I was just wanting it to be over already and that to me is a signal for a DNF. I can’t believe it’s deemed a romance and I really hope they don’t get together at the end because they are AWFUL for each other, Em literally drugs Gyre without her consent MULTIPLE TIMES just in the little bit that I read and they’re supposed to end up together?!?? It dragged on and they are immature people and Em is a rich privileged psychopath and I hate it I’m sorry
