A Thousand Pieces of You: Book Review

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1)A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

(Full review update..)

Here’s a nice little spoiler free full review of my FEELS. Because that’s all I can talk about without giving anything away.

The entire plot its nuts. If you, a smart reader like myself (eh, or what I tell myself that I am…) -you probably will think you can guess simply based on the description/back of the book summary that Paul Markov who is accused of killing Marguerite’s father is an innocent guy and this book is all about her realizing he’s innocent and blah blah blah end of story. Maybe you’re clever enough to figure out that not everyone around her is trust worthy. Simple, right?

Wrong. If you think that is the gist of the plot, you’re in for quite a surprise. Not only are there (obviously) other dimensions, but there are about as many plot twists to match. In fact, I’m willing to bet that you will have no idea who to even root for.

Honestly, overall, it was a bit complicated and I’m willing to bet there are a few plot holes just because of the complexity and enormity of the general idea… but this book was down right fun. I like not knowing who to trust.. who to ship… or where this will end up. I did not expect to get so emotionally involved. I literally cannot give ANYTHING else away because everything would be a spoiler.

I had a few minor complaints – the writing being just a bit hard to follow at times… but I was so invested that even when I got a little lost on where Marguerite was or who she was talking to, it was never that big of a deal.

Really, I’m just shocked this series isn’t more popular. My heart is now invested. In fact, I’ve just finished book two and I’m not OK. So have fun, if you give this ago. Bottom line is that I loved it and I think most of you will too.
