The Dysasters by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast – Review

Foster and Tate know they’re not normal, they can do things that others can’t. And now, they’re being hunted for it.

I want to start by stating that I did not finish this book so some of my issues may have been resolved later on.

I’ve come to the conclusion that P.C. Cast is for me. The main issue I have with her books is the writing. It’s easy to follow, but it’s also a little dry and for some reason, it can never fully suck me into a story. With The Dysasters, I found the same issue. Majority of the book is just pages of dialogue. I feel like we spend no time inside the main character’s head, we always see what’s happening, but never know what they’re thinking. This makes it hard to truly get to know or root for a character.

Speaking of characters, the two main characters in this novel were not my favourite, another reason that I struggled to get into the book. I found Tate to be highly annoying, and super dumb. He seemed to just speak without thinking, well actually, he just seemed to never use his brain at all. Foster was better but I felt as if parts of her were missing. She didn’t feel fleshed out at all, which may have to do with not being able to understand her properly.

The Dysasters had an interesting premise but in the end, the writing just left a lot to be desired.
