Didn't Meet Expectations
Although DAYD is a good read, you may not find it as amazing as the recs promise. I didn't. Not really spoilers involved, but if you want to read more about it: It's pretty self-consciously Darker And Edgier, to the point where you know the torture of random students is just to make them look like amazing heroes; there's some strange Beauty Equals Goodness stuff going on (in DAY Dverse, the more heroic you are, the more grown-up and beautiful you look); and it lauds chivalry to the point of chauvinism on more than one occasion (on the part of the author, I think, not the characters themselves).
