Content warning Whole book spoilers
This book starts out great. I loved the style of writing and the setup. A lot of wonderful characters and all of their side plots are introduced. Things keep going for a while. And then side plots just stop. Some of the minor characters are written out, but most just aren't talked about anymore. The book wanders a bit more and then pretty much just ends with little resolution to anything.
I'm not someone who feels that all plot points of a novel must be neatly resolved and tied up into a nice package with a bow, but this was just so abrupt. One of the members of the online book club I was reading with commented while she was only partially through that she couldn't see how all the plot lines would tie together get be resolved. Unfortunately, they don't.
