Chris Evans’ “Of Bone and Thunder” bills itself as a cross between “Apocalypse Now” and “Lord of the Rings.” Having been a little disturbed by the first and never having finished the second, this probably wasn’t the best book for me to attempt.
I only read about a tenth of the book before I gave up.
Copying Vietnam type things into a world of passenger dragons and crossbows just doesn’t work for me. I tried, I did. But the different types of people and their different allegiances and their rambling soliloquies was just too much.
Maybe if there’d been less crammed into such a small space I would have last longer. I don’t know. Maybe it just wasn’t for me.
I’m sure it’s the book for many people.
It’s available for purchase now.
(I received a copy of “Of Bone and Thunder” through NetGalley in exchange for an honest & Original review. My review will be cross-posted there, at Goodreads, and on my blog.)
