The Red Pyramid
I started this book more than a year ago but three-quarters through I lost interest and put it aside. I don’t think that there was anything specific that put me off, probably just something more exciting or urgent coming along. Try as I might, I couldn’t find my way back into the book when I tried now. The story was instantly present, it’s simple enough, but I didn’t feel anything for the main characters, Carter and Sadie anymore. I didn’t really care what happened to them at all. They didn’t even get on my nerves and I felt quite heartless not caring whether they live or die (which the obviously won’t). I liked the alternating narrations by Sadie and Carter when I first started the book, but in the end it all read the same and it didn’t really matter anyway.
I don’t think that I was able to give the book a fair chance and I should not rate it.
