This book started by being one I had to sit and pay attention to. I speed read, and that wasn’t applicable here. And then like with video games it felt like I was immersed and then it was over. Every character felt real. They had flaws and there was miscommunication and you wanted to shake characters and say “give them a break!” Or “be more generous” . But you never stop reading. There were parts I reread because they were heart wrenching (Act 7) and ones that I just pushed through (Act 9). I’m not a gamer by any means but I appreciated how well this encapsulated the feeling of gaming. And in the end you are both satisfied with the conclusion and waiting anxiously to continue the game.
