Full review at sff book reviewI think I'm just not meant to understand hyped books. I've heard left, right, and center how great this trilogy is and how everybody loves it. It was cute, sure. But it was terribly lacking in character growth and even plot - so I don't see why people rave about it so much.Maybe I am simply too old for YA literature?That said, I did enjoy the second half of this book, when the story finally takes off, when we get to see more of the Leviathan, a great and original idea, by the way, that made the read well worth my while. Three stars only but I will read the rest of the series.
