Day 18: A book that disappointed you
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
The most disappointing aspect was that we kept being told that Celaena was the world’s greatest, most feared assassin, yet no one was afraid of her and she didn’t murder anyone.
She was a terrible fighter who was reduced to a damsel in distress, and although she kept talking about how easily she could kill people, she always failed to deliver on her boasting.
She was also the most entitled character I’ve ever read, which seemed inconsistent with her backstory of working in a slave camp.
She wanted to be treated as special and was rude to royalty until it suited the plot for her to apologise.
There was a huge discrepancy with what we were told and what we were shown.
