Book Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Title & Author: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Genre: Science-Fiction, Adventure
Release Date: November 4 2014
Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite’s father is murdered, and the killer—her parent’s handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.
Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul’s guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is far more sinister than she expected.
I give A Thousand Pieces of You four out of five hearts. I liked the world of Firebird and the different universes Marguerite ends up in.
From the beginning Theo rubbed me the wrong way. I felt the entire novel like he was the one ruining Marguerite’s life at the beginning of the novel, which made me feel weird because there were no reasons on why he would be. Maybe except for the fact that he kept pushing Marguerite to distrust Paul each time she told him Paul as trustworthy.
Paul is an interesting character, but he is not as developed as the main character. Which made me feel a bit sad. I also wish there was more on Paul in Russia, because I thought this was the most interesting part of him.
This novel has a gorgeous cover. I am usually not the one for falling for a beautiful cover, but I just loved this one (and of the other series). But that is just a thing on the side that worked in the favor of this book.
Overall A Thousand Pieces of You is great. I loved it, but I just could not give it another heart, because I just thought there were tiny bits I did not care that much for. If you like other univereses, this would be a book for you!
