DNF Review: iFeel by Marissa Carmel
Lust. Anger. Hate. Desire. Love. Happiness. Joy. iFeel.
What happens when an unknowing empath meets a pixie who wears leather, a snitch who is repulsive and a fiery angel who can literally set your soul on fire? A whole lot of emotional turmoil and one love story ignited.
Liv Christianni is isolated, alone, tortured and withdrawn, saddled with the torrential downpour of the world’s emotions. Accepting of her providence Liv has lost all hope, until one day fate steps in and spins the course of her life like a spiraling top. Hunted by a Spirit Stalker, Liv is forced to gain control of herself and her surroundings, threatened by the touch of her immortal love; she must find a way to survive both physically and emotionally. Can she find the courage to accept her true self? Can she love unconditionally cognizant of the condemning consequences? Can she rise from the ashes to become the person she was always meant to be?
(Synopsis from Goodreads).
Back when it first released, I read Stripped from You and really enjoyed it. After that, I decided I wanted to try more of Marissa Carmel's books. I recently read iFeel, and unfortunately, it was a DNF (did not finish) for me at 12%. It was upsetting to me because the book has such a gorgeous cover that I wanted to love it.
I usually try to give it 50 pages, or 25% (whichever comes first) when I DNF a book. However, I just couldn't force myself to read more of the book. I read it on my Kindle Paperwhite, via Kindle Unlimited, and the formatting of the book was really messed up. There were random numbers everywhere. I think it was supposed to be page numbers, but it made no sense. Sometimes they would be in the middle of the page, sometimes on the top, and sometimes just randomly thrown in. They would repeat a lot too, which is why I said I think they were supposed to be page numbers. I couldn't really tell. Also, there would be random lines in the middle of the page, which made concentrating on the book to read almost impossible. It was distracting, and confusing to read. The pages would also stop in the middle of a sentence, which was also distracting.
I would definitely be willing to give this book another try if the formatting issues were fixed. When I DNF'd the book at 12%, the story was starting to intrigue me, but all of the formatting issues made it so it was hard to concentrate on the plot. I just kind of gave up caring about the plot. As of now, I have so many more books to read that I won't be trying this again, unless I know for certain that everything got fixed.
I give iFeel: 1/5.
