The Good

- Henry. I loved Henry so much. Henry is now my favorite character in this series. I want more Henry but that's really just me being selfish.
- Li Min. Li Min is a close second favorite. I loved her so much, I just wish we had more of a chance to explore who she really is.
- Interracial relationships. I think I can say that I've read a pretty decent sampling of YA literature, but I can count the number of interracial relationships that I've seen in it on one hand, and only counting main characters, that'd be even less.

The Bad

-My issues with the pacing were really emphasized in this one, in fact. I understand the want to go and explore as many time periods and places as possible, but the awe and wonder were not there. They flitted from period to period and didn't really go into great detail into many specific eras, which was something from the first novel that I liked much better.
- Nicholas and Etta's reunion was held over our heads for so long. They didn't see each other until at least 400 pages in. The first novel was a little over 300 pages if I remember correctly; at least in page length, they spent longer missing each other than actually being together. By at least halfway through, it felt pretty repetitive. So far, this series is only meant to be a duology, which means that their relationship was only beginning to develop.
- The general concept of time travel isn't too difficult to grasp, and it is really a unique take on it. In general with stories in any form that contain time travel, these are two of the elements to contend with. However, in this book, the timeline became so muddled and confusing to keep track of. A good portion of the time, I couldn't tell what the situation with the timeline was and if it meant good or bad things.
- Hasan never really reappeared. Small detail, I know, but it made a little sad.
- Rose felt a little underdeveloped to me as well. We did get a much better understanding of her by the end of the series, but considering how her choices played such a hand in this story, Rose herself as a character remained pretty murky.
- Most of the characters, to me, even the most central ones, felt undeveloped. I wish I could explain more exactly what about it made it feel that way. In general, it seemed like there were certain details of most of the characters that defined them, and outside of that, they didn't really have much depth.


My Conclusion

If you really loved Passenger, I think you will still really like Wayfarer. Personally, I felt a little lukewarm towards both of them. If you felt similar to me, I don't think Wayfarer should be completely written off, but do be aware that the pacing does not change much. Overall, I feel as though the story and characters felt a little underdeveloped in general. I'd really like to see an extension of the series. ( )

UPDATE:

this is one of those books I rated higher than I would for the high that I felt right after reading it. I don't even remember the plot of this story anymore :/

--
“The things which are denied to us in life will never create a cage for our souls.”

I WAS GOING TO RATE THIS 3 STARS because I don't know why but for some reason the story got pretty long and boring for me in the end but THAT. CONCLUSION.

The last 3 chapters made my heart ache and my eyes tear up. It hit me so much and affected me so much. It just saddens me that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would or as much as the first book since so many people are always raving about it.

but I did love the story and the characters a lot!! there is just something about the story that doesn't make it 5 story worthy for me.


DONT GET ME WRONG THOUGH because I definitely recommend this book to a lot o YA readers out there as well as music and time travel fans. The music part of this novel really did not let me down. the detail is something that I hope most music based books would learn from. The quality is simply astounding and you don't want to miss out.

Good sequel

I was so excited to read this book after finishing the first book. Wayfarer is a good story, but I felt it lacked the excitement and intensity of Passenger. I do love these characters and hope we get to have more stories. Maybe detailing Rose' s journies. Even just some novellas; I am not ready to leave this world that was created! ( )

Started out right where book one left off but as I got to the middle, it seemed very monotonous. I understand partially why it’s “back and forth”, but I feel it was dragged out more than necessary. Like the first one WAY better. ( )

Alexandra Bracken's Passenger was a fantastic novel - and I couldn't wait for more of the time traveling adventures ( and love story) of Nicholas and Etta. I was sorely disappointed by the sequel, Wayfarer. I did the math and 90% of the book Nicholas and Etta are separated. Investing 532 pages into a novel where it feels like the main characters are just slogging through history lessons was special torture. Side characters ( Julian and Sophia) received more character development than the main characters - and the prose is never ending. You find yourself wanting to strangle Bracken's editor, wishing that she would have just told Bracken to "get to the point." Two hundred less pages, and a shorter separation for Nicholas and Etta would have saved this novel from being the clunker it turned out to be. I will donate my book to the library.
