I'm sorry (no I'm not), but I don't give a crap about Jonathan. Or Madelaine. But wait. Wtf is this Gibbs dude and why the fuck is he everywhere? Is he the master of the overplot? Because he's highly suspect.And another idle observation, but people like to stick H's everywhere. Except now, damn. Elleian.Why is everything so vague? I feel like I have no idea what's going on? Is it just me? Am I just too distracted and not focus-able enough to focus on what's going on, or is it really that vague? The whole thing...it's all ephemeral and fragile and delicate and so, so deceitful. I'm wading through a field of poisonous bubbles, trying futilely to catch them even though I know they'll cause me ill, even as they're bursting, popping, shattering into poisonous soapy residue that soon evaporates. I pretty much have no idea what I just read. I wanted to like it, but I can't tell if I actually do or not because I'm so confused by it. I'm on the other side of the field of poisonous bubbles with very little memory of how I got there, but I can't quite say I came out completely unscathed, or even completely sane, assuming that I was even marginally so before.This review says some pretty good stuff, though I didn't read all of it because honestly, text wall, and I think I still need to recover from Cullinan-Etsey-trauma.
