Hi! Anyone here who read the Acacia Trilogy by David Anthony Dutham? The reviews and ratings for the books were great so I started reading them. I think I started reading the 1st book (the war with the mein) 4-5 times. Everytime I would start reading it, I lose interest real fast. I finally finished reading it last week(just the 1st book) and I was sorely disappointed. Durham’s way of writing was different. For me, he favors narrating conversations than actually writing their dialogues and exchanges which I found boring. The Akaran children’s characters were built quite shallowly for me. Example, Mena trained in sword fighting for only 3 months then she was able to defeat fighters, who fought in wars all their lives, quite easily. I find that hard to accept. So anyway, to anyone who has read the whole trilogy? Will the story line get better? Will the characters be more believable? Should I read the 2nd and 3rd books?
