Review: Glass Town Wars by Celia Rees (DNF)

Glass Town Wars

All these Glass Town intrigues. No matter how long you'd been absent, how far you'd travelled, once you were back, it was as though you'd never been away.

Tom and Augusta are from different places and different times, but they meet in the virtual world to combine forces in battle, to save a kingdom, escape a web of deceit and to find love. In a place where fictions can be truths and truths fictions, learning who to trust is more than friendship, it is about survival.

Glass Town Wars, inspired by the early writings of the Bront√ęs, is a captivating, magical novel by the renowned Celia Rees

I used to be a huge Celia Rees fan when I was in my teens, even though I'm pretty sure it's been over ten years since I read a book by her. When I saw Glass Town Wars  I didn't even need to think before requesting it.

I was so unbelievably dissapointed. From the very start, I had no idea what was going on and as the story went on I realized that I didn't massively care to find out. The writing wasn't engaging and I didn't care for any of the characters.

Unfortunately, despite my previous love for this author, I was unable to finish this book and gave up at 30%.
