    A tricky book to rate and perhaps not for everyoneThis is exactly what the label on the tin says a copy of the journal of Silver Glow covering the year long period wherein she is an exchange student on Earth It's written in first person with no dialogue just Silver Glow describing events as you'd expect from an amateur diarist One thing that took me a while to get used to and I'm still not sure if it was the best decision is that Silver Glow's writing style is a bit unpolished there are an awful lot of run on sentences and this happened and then this happened and then this happened descriptions But that's a deliberate choice on the author's part and I found that it grew on me It helps that Silver Glow's writing skill actually did noticeably improve over the course of her year as one would expect after writing so much on a daily basisAs it is written by Admiral Biscuit it is of course extremely well researched with events mirroring the actual real world events of the year 2016 and the local details of the places Silver Glow visits being true to real world places There's a lot of well thought out interactions between the protagonist and the world around her and some nice contrasts between Euestrian culture and American cultureUnfortunately there are some things that are either flaws or at least things that weren't uite ideal in this book too This book is loooong a little over a million words and at times it started to really drag I would normally recommend a round of editing when encountering a problem like this but the conceit of the book prevents that it is a fictional primary document This could also be partly due to how I read this in a week the book was originally written and serialized in real time so perhaps reading it over the course of a full year would be better When I reached the 50% mark I allowed myself to start skipping chapters when it seemed like not much was going to happen and that helped and I generally found myself pulled back into the story after skipping a couple so perhaps I just needed to put the book down often insteadI think the book may have also missed out on some good EuestriaAmerica contrast exploration by making things work a little too smoothly for Silver Glow at times It's neat that the backstory behind how Euestria discovered Earth is left offscreen with just a few hints about how it happened but the elephant in the room got ignored a bit too often IMO everyone seemed far too accepting of Euestrians already despite how rare they still were It turned the story into a travelogue of the mundane real world where it should have been of a fantastical cultural and character exploration As much as I appreciated how the author resisted the urge to insert pointless drama perhaps it would have helped to have some kind of antagonist or serious conflict than dealing with grumpy air traffic controllersStill I read the whole thing aside from a few skipped chapters as mentioned earlier and for a million word tome that's got to say something good about the contents
