Mini Reviews: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman

I have another round of mini reviews. The Illuminae files have been on my TBR list to read for a long time and I was recently encouraged to pick them up by a fellow blogger. They looked daunting from the shear mass of them, but from what I found out, they are formatted differently from a normal book and they weren't actually as long as I had thought.


(The Illuminae Files #1)

I had high hopes for this book. The premise sounded amazing, the reviews were all promising... but it sadly fell short for me. I think it was the formatting. As a listener of audiobooks and text to speech apps, the formatting made the story confusing and hard to sit through. There was a lot of jumble with the writing and I couldn't keep up. From what I did understand, the story sounded pretty goo, but It took me a while to get through it.  


(The Illuminae Files #2)

Again, the formatting really made this story hard for me to follow. I had to take my time and really pay close attention to know what was going on.


(The Illuminae Files #3)

I just can't win with this series. Formatting!!! It doesn't work for those of us who just don't read and only listen. I couldn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to. I was lost most the time, but finally finished it. It took me a while.
