Book Review- The Dream Thieves

I finally finished reading The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater.

From Goodreads: 

The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES
bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after...

At the end of the review of my first book in the series, I said that I wasn't sure if I would pick up the second one.  I wish I hadn't.  I could NOT get into this book.  But as I've said before, I'm one of those people who have to finish what they started.  So it took me 18 days to finish.  Sigh.

I just had such a hard time following along with the story line.  Why things were happening and who was who and what was what.  I felt like it jumped around a lot and I just couldn't keep up.  And it just wasn't interesting me.

And like in the first book, the characters didn't do anything for me.  I didn't really care about any of them although I think the Gray Man had the most dimensions. 

Oh well. 

I gave this book a rating of 2/5.
