Not a #Review ~ Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

Posted September 29, 2018 by Michelle in My TBR List, Review / 6 Comments

I am slowly finishing this book but a lot slower than I had intended. The issue I am having is, I love the layout and how the all the info is given, but I am missing the character connection. Like I don’t feel like I am reading an actual story. The book has a TON of characters but none that I can really say I like or not. Plus I am so confused with the amount of characters. I know the story sort of revolves around Kady and Ezra but even them I am not really connecting too. I do plan to finish the book but I just don’t see it happening before this post and I have been reading almost every day. I love the format of the book and how the pages are laid out but I am missing the actually story flow, it’s hard to keep up with and sometimes I feel like things aren’t meshing very well within the “story” like honestly sort of have an idea what is going on but I am not sure if that is really what is going on because each person tells things different.

I actually will say I recommend it because it is a cool book to read and I am hoping to finish it by the end of October, I really want to see how the “story” play outs. I feel like I will be missing something good if I don’t finish it. It’s totally not a DNF but I am pretty sure it wont be 4 or 5 stars either. At the moment it’s sitting at a solid 3.

  1. I hope it picks up for you. It does get kinda intense towards the end as I recall. I liked Gemina a lot more because the MC’s in that one- Nik and Hanna- were much more interesting to me than Kady & Ezra. Plus there’s WAY more action and tension aboard a space station. So if you end up continuing with the series I think Gemina is better. That’s just me though. 🙂
