A common case, when the blurb and the reviews are better than the actual book.
I wanted to love this so much. I was excited to start, and explore something new.
The first few chapters were great, I was enamored mostly by the writing (despite one teeny tiny detail), it was like it was written for children, and I don’t mean this in a bad way, it wasn’t childish, but this story was full with tales of how the Sea People came to be, of their history. And I loved that part.
What I didn’t like was that I didn’t understand how these creatures moved. Were they in the water all the time? I guess not, because they needed to breathe. The author described how this little community interacted with each other, they „sat” down to eat, but where, on the beach? Did they drag themselves in the sand? The whole picture was a bit fuzzy to me. When writing about fantastical creatures, I think one of the most important thing is to explain how they look like, how they move and interact with each other
