Harrow the Ninth


This book was a mess. It maybe was trying to be clever in form, but it was simply a mess. About halfway through, I was ready to give up and put it down, but I read a bunch of reviews that said that the first two-thirds of the book are confusing and it all comes together in the end. I also read a few that hated the whole book. I should have listened to those few. This book has a lot of fans and has very high ratings on several book sites. I'm not one of them. By the time I got to the part that was supposed to be revelatory, I didn't care. As with Muir's first book, Gideon the Ninth, I'm astounded this book has been nominated for awards, including the Hugo. The Hugo being a fan-based award, tells you how loved it is. Amazing.
