First of all, I didn't really hate this book, nor was it my favorite, so there's really not much for me to say about it. Its an interesting world and an interesting concept. And I really love seeing an awesome kick ass main character, but more realistically would be better. There's a difference between being badass and simply being impenetrable (fighting a mountain lion, living on like no sleep or food, never getting hurt). Sometimes it was a bit out there.
Po was a main character who was likeable, but of course he had to be sullen toward the end because he didn't start off moody like most main love interests do. Granted, he had a reason to be moody, which honestly caught me by surprise.
And listening to this on audiobooks was a bit melodramatic with the music and the full cast audio. Sometimes it was overwhelming and the girl doing Katsa's voice could have done with a little less yelling.
But I enjoyed it and I'll probably pic up the next one.
