The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two - Catherynne M. Valente

Well, that was certainly a ... unique ride.

I have tried so hard to get into the series. The books look beautiful and I love the covers and intriguing titles. I listened to the first two audiobooks, and while I did not love them, I appreciated their uniqueness and creativity. But after this one, I am done with the series. I am just exhausted.

I was a little nervous that Valente read the audiobook as I did not like her reading of the first book (I liked the second book better, which was not narrated by her). In my opinion, she did a much better job reading this one. 

However, I just could not get into the story. Like the first two, it just drags on and on. You meet so many characters and they all have the annoying habit of telling you their life story and their philosophy on life. By the end, I really didn't even care what happened, I just wanted to get through the book so I could be done with the series. 

I swear I tried so hard to like these books, but they are just not right for me. I am calling it quits on this series.
