I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
And I may have to lie to a RL friend of mine who's joking about not talking to me ever again because I was having trouble getting through this...
The plotline was, as promised, good, but I couldn't really connect with any of the characters. It all felt a little rote: battles and not the kind of emotional impact that I've come to expect from Marvel lately. I think the fact that Adam Warlock is such a main character in this, and I don't particularly care for him helped my emotional distance when it came to this.
But most of my disappointment was in how boring how I found this in general and how much I didn't buy the ending. I just didn't see the character acting the way in that one last scene, and it really pulled me out of the story.
The middle part was the best in my opinion, but this is not something I'll read again.
