After at least five months, closer to six, of losing interest in the middle and general ambivalence towards everything I’ve finished reading a book. This probably doesn’t mean a ton to the rest of internetland, but holy shit does it feel good to me.
So how was the second half of Edge of Tomorrow? I really enjoyed the part focusing on Rita becoming the Full Metal Bitch. I liked seeing her and Keiji connect and work together, it was kind of nice to see them both having someone who understood what was going on. What I’m not a big fan of was the ending. It isn’t that it was poorly written or that it didn’t fit the rest of the book, in fact if I’m being honest I don’t know that anything else would have really worked properly, but it wasn’t my favorite ending to a novel either. It also struck me that revealing what the Mimics were made them feel a bit less, not threatening, but just less as a thing.
Overall, I enjoyed the book though and would read more by this author. Not sure that I’m gonna go see the movie though.
