The Last Four Things

The Last Four Things - Paul  Hoffman I was pretty disappointed, really. Two years ago, I found `The Left Hand of God' to be a really wonderful book. I loved the protagonist Cale, and the setting in The Sanctuary. I was looking forward to this sequel that I even temporarily quit another book I'm curently reading to start with it as soon as I got my hands on it. This time, however, I was never really dragged into the story, nor the world in which it takes place. Also the dark and bitter atmosphere I loved so much in the first book seemed absent to me in `The Last Four Things'.

Nevertheless, it's a page turner again, and I will definitely read the third and final book, even though I'm not really that curious about the continuation of the story anymore.
