[ad] Review: «Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow» by Jessica Townsend 📖
Here’s the thing: I didn’t hate «Nevermoor», but I didn’t really love it either. It was just one of those books that remains somewhere in the middle. Not bad, but also not great.
My main problem was that there were just so many things going on (and i dont mean plot-wise). I mean, you have people flying with umbrellas and on dragons, a big, talking cat, zombies, a giant spider machine, unicorns, a living hotel (?), strange words, stranger names, shadow monsters, and the list goes on... To me, it was all a bit too much, too many references, too many worlds mixed together into one. I’m all for creating strange, new worlds, but it has to have a certain kind of cohesiveness, otherwise it just collapses into itself. .
I never really connected with the story because most of the time I was more confused than Morrigan, which really is saying a lot.
With that being said, «Nevermoor» definitely has its qualities and I probably would have liked it a lot more when I was the actual age it is intended for. (Yes, I feel extremely old writing this, and no, I don’t want to talk about it.)
