No, no, no, no.
Here’s the deal.
If you read my previous thoughts, you’ll know that I had issue with those WTF moments. For those of you who many choose to read/ watch the series, I won’t tell you the epic of all EPIC WTF’S, BUT WTF, WTF, WTF. In the end, it was a FINALLY moment. FINALLY, I can be done now.
By the end, I couldn’t care less what happened to Jamie and Claire. By the end, it was like well of course, he’s killing himself with seasickness. I mean, it started out with a bullet shot that he rode a damn horse home while carrying that wound. But this time, it’s a series of much smaller wounds and sea sickness that almost kills him. WTF?! That isn’t even the epic WTF.
I will say this though, this book is well-written and the audio is flawlessly read. It’s not the writing style that bothers me. It was those moments where you are like REALLY????!!!!!!!!!!!
I lowered my rating to 2 stars. Considering how sucked in I was at that beginning, I find myself literally shocked to feel that way. But feel that way I do.
PS: Onto The Iliad. It isn’t covered in Crash Course literature, but I haven’t read it in ages, and the audio is read by Derek Jacobi. So how could I skip it?
