Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

Iron Gold (Red Rising, #4)Iron Gold by Pierce Brown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There’s nothing quite so painful as desperately awaiting the arrival of a preordered book, only to read it and find you’re not really enjoying it and can’t wait for it to end.

There’s a lot I could say about why this story was a complete disconnect for me, but I may actually be too sad and disappointed to say any of it.

Luckily, every single other person who read this seems to have absolutely loved it, so you should probably just disregard my opinion in this instance.

There was one new character that I adored and was fascinated by. However, I will confess that despite the tedious storyline, with multiple parts, some of which go nowhere as slowly as possible, the most upsetting thing for me was that this story made me dislike and lose interest in a character that used to be a favorite.

Ugh. I feel a book depression coming on. Send chocolate. Or tequila. Or a book that doesn’t feel like a chore to get through. *cries a million pretty tears of despair*

Really unpopular opinion time: this actually deserves 2 stars from me, but I just can’t do it. I still love the world, and it hurts too much to give it less than 3 stars. At this point, I figure I’ve suffered enough, just by having read the whole thing, so 3 stars it is.
