This is an 1001 Nights retelling with a modern setting. We follow Alif a skilled hacker who comes across a powerful book while he is on the run.
I really wanted to love this book but I could never get into this story. I thought it was a great premise but I didn't like any of the characters. I thought everyone came across as very self centered.
The plot was very long and took many twist and turns. I felt that the book was a bit too long at times.
This was just not the book for me. I gave it a D.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
