I wonder if part of the problem is that the book spans four months; this is a tie-in to a show where an episode normally spans a day or two. Most books (yes, I know there are exceptions, having brought them up myself in regards to Destiny possibly spanning an extended period of time!) are similarly constrained, so I can see how audience members might interpret the book through that lens even if it's not the right one for the task.
