What did I think about it?

I found this book to be really boring which is sad to me because I wanted to realy like it and had been anticpating reading it for sometime now.  I will say that the beginning of the book goes by really fast and I enjoyed the time on the ship its the other 88% that’s spent on the planet they land on that I found monotonous.  Because the story is focused with only two characters and very little interaction with anyother characters except in the beginning and end is why I think it was really boring to me.  I literally had to force myself to get through to the end because really how many interesting things can develope between two characters who are with one another all day long.

I won’t be continuing the series sadly but I know there are plenty of other people who enjoyed this book and who knows maybe you might enjoy it too.

Who would I recommend it to?

Teens or someone in their early twenties might want to give it a try.

Who would I not recommend it to?

If you need more than two characters to support a story or tell a story then These Broken Stars isn’t for you.

Happy Reading,
