I know this book is beloved by many but I. JUST. COULDN’T.
I’m not exactly sure why. It was an audiobook so I listened to it while doing other things like driving, ironing kid’s uniforms, cleaning the house etc. I tried to hang in there but once I discovered that the MC had a crush on her brother and kissed him, it was all down hill from there. I kind of felt that the author (or her editors) were trying to
make the book more interesting/scandalous than it really was gross me out.
No matter how hard I tried – and I did – I couldn’t get past this aspect to the story. I didn’t connect with a single character. I had no empathy for them and didn’t find any interesting. Well, maybe except for the girl who learned her rich daddy really wasn’t her daddy. That must have been tough.
I have the utmost respect for creativity and recognize it’s not easy to create something liked by everyone, but I thank goodness loads of others love this book enough whereby my solitary inability to stand it (strong, I know), won’t matter.
No shade but, how did I manage to get through Fallen but not get past this book? good lord
Yup, those were my thoughts on The Thousandth Floor.
