I have many feelings about this book while also having none at the same time.
The Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser follows a sailer named Caro who is tasked with delivering cargo to the north. Within less that 24 hours she manages to break her contract and make things approximately 98% more difficult for everyone.
I really did enjoy the beginning and middle of this book, unfortunately the end was a really big let down for me. During the final 10% of the book, I came close to dnfing the book, which is insane seeing I already had the majority of it done.
Although this book was by far the most predictable I have ever read, I enjoyed the plot. I do wish that the story was a little more fleshed out and not as rushed. It seemed to be jumping from one thing to another with no time to process. With that said, if you are looking for a really quick read, this one would be a wonderful option.
The characters did bug me a tad but it wasn’t over there personalities, it was just because of the way they acted to the very predictable things that happened. Actually strike all that Caro frustrated me 70% of the time by doing the dumbest things. She literally points out that her father says to always read a contract twice… what does she do? SHE DOESN’T READ IT AT ALL. Caro then proceeds to say that she sound have read it. LIKE YEAH CARO YOU SHOULD HAVE!!!
I would say the first 300 pages of this book is a solid 3/5 stars and the final 75 probably somewhere between 0-2 stars. However, I do hope to one day have enough time to go back and read this book again.
Have you read this book? What did you think?
Until next time,
