The Captain’s Log – hollowpox: the hunt for morrigan crow (Jessica Townsend) – unpopular opinion time!

Ahoy there me mateys!  If ye haven’t read the first book in this series, nevermoor, then ye might want to skip this post and go read the first book.  Worth the read.  If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . .

The first book was excellent and the second book even better.  I was excited to read this one.  And then it was just okay and the more I think about it the sadder I get.  Ye see the first two books were full of action and insight into the world.  In this book Morrigan didn’t really do much.  There was too much focus on the past memories in the school and the hollowpox sections felt like nothing really happened either.  Lots of discussion for little benefit.  Telling not showing.  I feel like this book could be completely tossed out and not much would be different.  The plot was messy, the cause and cure for the hollowpox was a bit nonsensical, and I am bit confused as to how the ending of the book is going to move forward for the next book.  Will I be reading the next one?  Aye, mateys.  But I will likely never reread this one.  Arrr!

  1. Confession: I didn’t read this at all. I am re-reading book 2 right now to remind myself what’s going on before I pick up book 3– which arrived from the library TODAY.

    … But seeing the title unpopular opinion time does set my expectations a bit. I wanted you to know I saw that before I read it. 😉

    1. The second one is still me favorite even though I believe that book one has one of the best openings I have ever read. I adored her life before Nevermoor even though I felt sorry for her too!
