I was never interested by this title in the first place, but I recently read Ability by the same guys which I found really great. Plus I saw so many positive comments even from people saying it's better than ToG (which is one of the most original, imaginative and well constructed story I ever read in my life). So I decided to give it a try.
But I'm reaching chapter 60, and I'm still not getting it. By chapter 60 in Ability there was several story arcs, some backgrounds stories, a clear evolution of the main character and his relationships, most of the character are developed enough to be more than extras, and I was left hanging at each chapter end after chapter 10.
Here I feel the story has not even started yet. The most significant evolution from the beginning is that the guy is now able to open the door. No background, development of relationships or any psychology of the characters. It feels like you could get rid of any of them and nothing would change much. Maybe the principal who got a little something as he is in between being the boss of school and having his master, and the first two bad guys, they're the only ones getting some relief, all the other characters are totally flat.
Anyway, if everybody is so fan of this, is it getting better ? There are a loooot of chapters, so maybe it's just really slow. Or if I didn't get into it by now, should I just drop it ?
