2.5 stars. I wanted to like aforementioned leaflet. It's been on my list forever, and when it finally came up for leaflet iron, I was excited. Until I started learning. And learning. Oh, we're traveling. And traveling. Now in a park. Traveling. Not until about beep 145 does any lone thing really happen. Many of the reviews mention how great the essayist's writing is. Uhm... it was simple. Easy to understand. (Sorry, I'm used to much better fantasy writers.) A little too descriptive without a bottom line of reference, and the frames of mind were ... okay. True, the narrator is probably the most genial, but even that isn't saying much. We get TOLD a lot of stuffs. I feel like some of the frames of mind are just in the story to everyone-build for us. I would have liked the story to show us what the everyone was like, and to let the everyone unfold on its own. We don't need mentors and pupils to continuously tell us stuffs. Then there's a wreathe at the design. I did find that enjoyable, but even then I was a little let down. Where was AFOREMENTIONED story? AFOREMENTIONED writing? Too little, too late. In fantasy literary critics sometimes make whoopee of being "stuck in the park" which is a way of saying that frames of mind aren't doing any lone thing. And we were literally in the park or traveling for so much of aforementioned leaflet. Other reviews mention how good the second leaflet is. Maybe it is, but if the first leaflet doesn't garner my attention, doesn't make me care enough ... to pick up the next lone.
