I thought the concept was really interesting and could've been engaging, but the execution of it left a little to be desired.
All of the joins felt, personality-wise, the same to me. Even the ones that were supposedly "crazy" had this same moderate tone. I got the feeling that it was bc it was assumed that joining with other people would kind of polish the sharp edges of people or something. But what about personality traits that would be compounded when joining? It felt like, because there were so many personalities in one join, every join had no personality. Along the same lines, joins where different criteria for joining weren't really explored fully. They were mentioned, but not really focused on.
I felt as though the book focused on one of the least interesting topics in this world. I'm not saying that it wasn't important for a deeper understanding of these characters and setting, but it could have been woven into a larger, more interesting story. I also didn't love some of the stylistic choices of the author- the timeline and the order that information was revealed to us seemed disjointed at times and could take me out of the story.
