This is the first book I read by Paul Wang that I really wasn't into. The infinity books are truly some of the best choice/hosted games they have to offer, but this just doesn't cut it, not at all. For me, it felt like a completely different author wrote this one. None of the characters are really that intriguing, the language they talk in is juvenile and it doesn't fit the setting at all. It honestly feels like a high school version of Paul Wang wrote this. Also, there was that one weird non-binary thing going on with one of the characters (can't remember the name). What was that all about? It felt so random and there was even a part where your character can ask about their pronouns, and it just felt so out of place. The first book in this series was decent, but this one really drops the ball for me. I'll give it three stars just because Paul wrote it and I really like all his other stuff and I know this doesn't represent his best writing ability.

Good read but my book of mad whispers is....

My book of mad whispers did not carry on from the first installment what was the point in getting the book if I couldn’t use it again?????

Not that great. It was quite a disappointment compared to the first. The story seemed rushed and some of the choices and story didn’t even really make sense. I feel like my hero from the original actually got worse as the story went on. It’s a decent story at best but I don’t feel excited about doing many more plays
