I kept waiting for it to get good but it didn't.
It started off ok. But it just kept getting weirder and weirder. There were too many characters, and they weren't memorable enough to differentiate one from the other. I couldn't keep track of all of them after a while.
A lot of the plot points didn't really add up either. Especially the ending. Like, that was a major let down. Like they build it all up to "we're taking down the bad guys" and then they just get prescribed new meds and everything is ok even though they don't take down the bad guys.
Overall the book wasn't very original. I know I can't really get into how it wasn't original without spoilers so
a planet where what you believe turns true - been done #ForbiddenPlanet #LikeTenEpisodesOfStarTrek
an outsider who moves to a small town to escape an over-industrialized earth and encounters locals that turn into dogs at night - been done
small town people with ridiculously bad ideas about the environment but the hero somehow learns to get along with them despite disagreeing with them and doing NOTHING to help fix things - been done
people who break the curse by doing the right thing - been done
oh and that robot you see in the cover art? THERE'S NO ROBOTS IN THIS BOOK
honestly I would've returned this but by the time I decided it was bad I was already a third of the way in and my conscience bugged me about doing that so I finished it
