I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
So I got into this a lot.
Then came the info dump that was so ridiculous that I was rolling my eyes. Looks like it might just be a two and a half to three stars: I'm enjoying it, and yet there are elements like the ridiculous science that this is shoving down my throat in great detail that I simply can't find it in myself to buy.
And then there's the fact that the world building is coming right now, and it annoyed me that I didn't have the backstory earlier.
This would have been a two star review - possibly less - if these info dumps weren't here...
