To Sleep in a Sea of Stars

By Christopher Paolini’

I really hated listening to this book. Not that the audiobook was bad; without the audiobook, I don’t think that I would have gotten past part one.

Like many fans of the Inheritance Cycle, I was super excited to read a new book by Paolini. Unfortunately, this was not a book for me. I disliked the main character, hated the generic romance, thought the aliens were basic, and was unhappy reading it. As you may be able to guess, I didn’t finish this book. I struggled through the first 53.6%, and just don’t want to put myself through 15 more hours of this book.

If you want an Epic SciFi story with a shitty main character and aliens that are somehow boring… look for further. Now, I know that a lot of people are enjoying this book, and I was hoping to as well. It is hard to like a single POV book, with a main character that you dislike. In detail, I didn’t like that our main character (I can’t remember her name) was lovesick in a way that seemed unrealistic to me. As the story progressed, I never started to like this character.

I’ll still read Christopher Paolini’s next book, and am thankful to NetGalley and Macmillian audio for allowing me to listen to this book in exchange for an honest review.
