Faustus but with a lead who doesn’t know what she wants

3 stars

The premise was interesting and I went along with it for a long time, but then it shifted to a love story and I just didn’t care. Don’t sell your soul. And don’t be tempted to fall in love with the being you sold your soul to. And for the love of everything, don’t assume he doesn’t always know everything. And above all, ffs, don’t ask to live forever.

I didn't ship it

This book was fine, I can see why people really liked it. It's well written and the plot is solid, but I found the picture perfect artsy Brooklyn courtship tedious, I didn't find either of the main characters all that compelling, and the tropes it relies on a little uninteresting. I was disappointed by how lacking in oddness or eccentricity it was, how credible but unremarkable the characters are.
