Alcatraz #5: The Dark Talent by Brandon Sanderson
As usual, I loved, loved, love this book. I just find the writing style, the commentary on writing, the delightful internal dialogue and just the straight wackiness of it. And so, so many librarian jokes.
I was really disappointed in the ending though because it didn’t really end. It was just over and the narrator insisted this was the end of the series and I believed it because I’d heard there was only supposed to be 5 books. It just totally failed to wrap up the story and it made me really sad.
But the more I thought about it, the more I thought it was okay. This abrupt, unhappy ending actually kind of worked with the genre bending, commentary on language and tropes. To have such a surprising, unpredictable ending like that, kind of genius and plays into the whole story really well, even if it didn’t make me happy.
Only then I found out there’s going to be a sixth book. So I guess I’ll have to wait and see how it all ends.
Anyway, I still love and recommend the series completely, even if they’re a little abstract for younger readers.
Last movie I watched:
The Santa Clause? I think. It’s a good one I feel.
Last TV show I watched:
Supernatural. This episode isn’t that great, but we’ll see how it goes.
