I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
But the thing is as it kept going on, it became more obvious that this needed heavy editing and less purple prose. I liked the ideas, I liked how dark the angelic mythology got, but it just kept going on and on and I got bored.
Some of the phrases were just there to sound pretty, too. It took a lot of words to say, y'know, nothing, which didn't help the pacing of this very much. And the pacing was so damned slow. So. Damned. Slow.
I'm glad to move onto something more interesting, to be honest. (That'll be Ash Vs. The Evil Dead. I'm watching this with a friend, but I need to catch up on the first episode first, and it's so good. So very good so far.)
