@dani_p What did you think of THE CHAOS?

@merhaskell I liked a lot about it: there was really great character building, it's set in the city I live in and I recognized so many references, and the dialogue was well written! I liked the integration of folk tales. Things I liked less but others might not mind: an abrupt ending, the lengthy first act, the fact I saw less folk tale in act one. I'm no expert so I probably missed some cues, but I think it's my structural sensibility that this book doesn't work within

@dani_p thanks for sharing that! I read it a few years ago, and liked much about it, but did feel dissatisfied with the ending, I recall.

@merhaskell yah! I had to check a couple of times in disbelief that I hadn't missed two chapters (I read on my kobo). I was like, where's the rest!! definitely felt hurried :'<
