I’M STILL NOT OVER IT. I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL EVER GET OVER IT.
Let me start out by saying I almost DNF-ed this book. This book definitely is not for everyone. I was confused for at least the first 100 pages, but curiosity got the better of me and I pushed my way through. AND I’M SO GLAD I DID. IT WAS SO WORTH IT. ASDLFJSALKDFJLASJLA.
I loved the idea of this book being in emails, IMs, transcripts, images, etc. It’s different. I also like audiobooks. So I started out by listening to JUST the audiobook. Fatal mistake. Don’t listen to JUST the audiobook. I’m very glad I did the audiobook but you also need the physical book. You need to look at these pages. There are things the audiobook just can’t convey. You can’t do the audiobook alone for the first time you read this. You’ll end up disliking it, like I almost did. But the audiobook is A-MAZ-ING. Wow. I’m so glad I listened to it, it really helped me enjoy this book a lot more!
So listen to the audiobook but also read the physical book. (Libraries are your best friend.)
Sci-fi also isn’t really my thing, hence my utter confusion early on. This is a book you don’t really fully understand what’s really going on until at least halfway through or until the end. I usually hate books like that, but I enjoyed this! Once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down! Don’t let the 599 pages scare you. With images on some pages, and a lot of it in the form of IMs, it's a quick read.
Warning, I was paranoid something/someone was out to get me the entire time I read this book. Is that just me?
I can’t wait for Gemina I CAN’T WAIT. I NEED IT.
