Wind down please

So I’m just going to say it….I hated this book. Honestly I didn’t even make it through the entire thing. My experience was a combination of boredom and just complete disdain. I even went through a bunch of websites trying to figure out what the hell actually was going on. A lot of the reviews that I’ve read basically hate the fact that the story feels like its all over the place, but I didn’t mind the millions of different characters as much as the story itself. I didn’t like the over all story. Sure a world where energy companies rule isn’t too far fetched, I just think that the plot could have been executed a little better. The one thing that really got to me was the sexual humiliation and the abuse of Eskimo. It really shocked me that the author chose to put something so real and so messed up (for lack of a better word) in this book that I thought was just supposed to be about climate change and how these companies are still destroying the world. I think that aspect made the book a little more realistic but it also just really turned me off from it. So aside from that she just goes and kills like 7 people! I understand the circumstances but, I had this idea in my head that she was this frail person who could not hurt anyone really. So for her to just kill these powerful men and bodyguards, it just seemed really far off to me, like the author was reaching to much. All in all I thought this was a good book, but it just wasn’t a book that i wanted to read.
