Been itching to read this book since watching @Lezlie review of it

Plan to start it after The Blade Itself and before Chasing Graves (our March book of the month read along) since it's only about 250 pages.  Has anyone else read it?

Finished it last night, and while it had a few moments it wasn't my cup of tea.  It explored some interesting subjects and I can see what he was trying to do with it but it wasn't something I enjoyed too much.  The main character wasn't likable or sympathetic most of the time, and I can deal with that if they are an intriguing character but he struck me as so selfish and unaware.  His arc wasn't too satisfying and the romance angle wasn't necessary.  I don't like to post negative reviews and bash someones hard work, so I won't do a video review but it looks like I'm in the minority and lots of people loved it.  We all have our preferences and tastes, so that's what makes this all interesting!

Maybe it's me but when an author uses "WTF" repeatedly unironically it annoys me.

I gave it 2 out of 5.
