Book Review

Otherworld – Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

Otherworld (Otherworld, #1)Otherworld by Jason Segel

My rating: 3,5 of 5 stars

I struggled to decide how I feel about this book because though it was enjoyable (eventually) it wasn’t particularly well written. I actually didn’t enjoy the book at first and was afraid that it was going to end up being a much lower rating. The story took a while to get going and it wasn’t until we were really immersed in Otherworld that the plot became interesting.

I liked some of the characters, but I wasn’t a huge fan of any of them. For me, personally, I usually need to relate to one of the characters in some way to form more of a connection to the book. Otherwise, it’s just a book. It’s the stories that hit you hard and you feel like you’re living them with your favourite characters that make a mark. This book is not one of those stories.

In the end, I was more intrigued (and horrified) by the world of Otherworld that the authors built than the characters or the mission that they were on. I wish the various “lands” were more vividly described because I felt like there was something missing. I wanted to see more of the world than we were exposed to. I hope that there is more development of the world in the second book.

Overall, it was an interesting book but not a favourite.
