Brood of Bones by AE Marling

Transcript of Video

Hey everybody! So I know it’s been a while, but I just finished reading a book called Brood Of Bones by A.E. Marling. It was a really good book. Umm. The only thing that I had trouble with was that it was very wordy. So, it was,…umm….uh, trying to explain what I mean by that. It…took a long time to describe the things that were happening. Umm. Not so much that…it…was wordy in its descriptions, but just…it…there…was a lot happening. It had a, it had a really great story to tell and it had a lot of things involved. So there was the culture of the story that it was telling, and then there was all of the, the history and the story of the character. Umm, the main character Hiresha, who…was amazing, and I’m totally pronouncing her name wrong. But, umm…it, it was interesting, I mean all of it was very intricate and detailed, and incredibly interesting. But it took a long time for the story to move forward. So that was my only problem with it. Umm. Was that I, I really wanted to know what happened, and I wanted to see what, uh, the climax of the story was, and it just took forever to get there. So then, when the climax of the story happened… it felt…very anti-climatic. Because, uh, you took so long to get there…and then all of a sudden it happened…in a very short amount of time. So if felt a little…uh…disappointing? Is not really the word I wanna use, but that’s kind of…what it felt like. Umm, that’s the best word I can come up with off the top of my head. 

But, it was amazingly written. It had a great story, it was, uh, captivating. Umm. Especially once you got into it, and got past sort of…the intro and, and the description and the figuring out what was going on, and, and figuring out your culture that you were reading about, and all of those things. Umm. But, it was really good book and, and it’s definitely one that, umm, that I’m glad I picked up and decided to do something with. But, umm, I don’t know that I would necessarily choose to read more things by, uh, the author. Umm. Just because…it took a long time to read. It took very long to get through. Umm, and…it…uh…didn’t hold my interest as well as, as other books of the, of similar genres that I’ve read. Umm, but it was definitely interesting, it was really well written, and if it’s, umm, your type of book, uh, I would definitely recommend it. Umm, I don’t have, uh, anything horrible to say about the writing itself or the storyline, umm, because it was all very intriguing, and, and it had me hooked. But, umm, but yeah, it was, it was one of the harder books for me to get through, umm, and I hate to say that about anything, but, umm, unfortunately that’s, that’s what I have to say. So, hopefully I’ll get back to posting more often and, and I’ll see you all soon. Thanks!
