DAY 13. – A book that disappointed you.
So.. yesterday when I said that I was going to write this post ‘later today’ what I actually meant was ‘tomorrow’. Christmas is exhausting I tell ya.
There haven’t been a lot of books that really disappointed me. I actually had to go up to my room and stare at my books in order to find one that I actually felt disappointed about when I read them. But then I found one. Ha.
When I read the Northern Lights (or The Golden Compass), the first book of the His Dark Materials series written by Philip Pullman, I really liked it. I read it, of course, after I saw the movie which I was really impressed with and I really wanted to know what the rest of the story was. But then I read The Subtle Knife and I really did not like that book. Even though I read the Subtle Knife straight after Northern Lights, I felt like I was reading a book that was not a part of the same series. Now, it has been quite a while since I read both books so I don’t know the details anymore, but I vaguely remember it being about travelling to a different universe and I did not see the connection between the first and the second book at all. I also thought it was a little boring.
Like I said, I haven’t read the book in a long time so maybe I’d have a different opinion if I read it now. But at the time that I read it, I was really disappointed. Because of this, I stopped reading the series and never found out how it actually ended. It’s a shame, really.
Well, that’s it for today. Maybe I’ll see you later today. If not, definitely tomorrow. See you soon!
