I tried so hard to get into this book, but I couldn't do it. I had to DNF A Thousand Nights because it was making me miserable. It really is a shame because I was really looking forward to reading it! I was thrilled when I got approved on NetGalley. I was ready for an entertaining story filled with adventure, fantasy, and magic. A Thousand Nights wasn't like that for me. It's not what I had been expecting at all.
Some things I didn't like:
1.) Um... does anyone besides Lo-Melkhiin have a name!?
2.) The main character kept talking about her sister and father. My sister this, my sister that, my sister this, my father that, my father this... OMG STOP.
3.) The writing was flat.
4.) Too much description, not enough dialogue.
5.) The main character was boring, annoying, whiny, and lacked a personality of any kind.
6.) There was no connection between the reader and the characters or between the reader and the story.
Overall I was like, "WHO CARES?" I'm sorry I just could not get into A Thousand Nights. Neither the story or characters interested me and that is a MUST have for me.
