» PLOT «
Amidst a time war, two rivals, Red and Blue, start to communicate with each other. Despite the risk they take to do so, they spark up a connection deeper than they though they would.

If you want a true story with a focus on plot or world building, don't look here. While there is a storyline/plot, this book clearly focuses on the writing and prose.

Usually with an audiobook, I can comprehend the book much better, but in this case the physical book might've been the better choice.

I read with an audiobook, and it was short and quick.

Despite the two narrators of the audiobook, I really couldn't tell the two main characters apart (personality wise) until the end.

Typically, with non-plot focused books, as long as the characters are good, I can end up really liking the book. But in this case, neither the plot or the characters were anything particularly good or special for me.

Like I said before, the prose between the two is the highlight of the book. However, without a good plot or a good character, it does nothing for me.

My overall thoughts of this book can be summed in what Kat wrote:

"this book has some truly gorgeous words and the yearning between red and blue is on point, but sci fi and my brain are like oil and water & i was ✨confusion✨ for most of the story"
