Overwhelmed. Like the main character in the novel, Sunday, I was overwhelmed by everything going on in this novel. There was too much going on…too many characters, too many fairy tales mashed together, too many unexplained character and world histories…that I struggled to keep it all straight.
The world was very beautifully rendered and the characters were compelling, but with all the twists and turns, forcing me to reread entire pages, I was really challenged to finish this novel. I wish the author would have scaled back a bit and given me a chance to get to know the characters and the world a bit more be throwing the everything and the kitchen sink into the plot.
