Book: S. B. Divya's "Meru"

I had difficulty getting through this book.  For the first time in a long time I interrupted reading a book to read another or, in this case, read three other books.  Part of the reason for the interruption was that the three other books became available for checkout at my library and I didn't want to lose my place in my library queue.  The other part was that I just couldn't get into the book.

S. B. Divya's "Meru" is set in a world I did not like centered around a character I was not interested in.  I am sure there are many people who will like this book but I just couldn't put my differences aside and just accept how this world was built and how the characters behaved.

The book was well written - no complaints there.  My issues were with the story itself.  It sometimes read like a romance novel set in a strange future that felt unlikely to me.  I'm not a fan of romance novels ... no matter what their setting.

I gave this book three stars out of five on Goodreads.  I will not be reading the second book of this series.
