Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

This was a good book. It had its flaws, but nevertheless, a good book with an interesting concept. This book started off abruptly. I would have liked more build up before the main character was thrusted into the action. It sort of left the reader feeling a little disconnected and unprepared because of the instant start.

I did really enjoy the whole premise of dimension hopping. I thought the author did that really well. She created different dimensions that would be interesting to see the character go to and took the time to describe them. It brought another layer to the story.

Also, bravo to the author for acknowledging mental and physical problems that might occur when a character dimension hops. For example, the character is emotionally impacted by the idea that she may never see certain people from one dimension again.

Although the story was action packed and fast paced, I felt that the romance dominated the plot. The love triangle was not very sufficient and was dragged out a too far.

This book is the first book in a trilogy. And I do plan to continue; however, this book did not end with a cliffhanger so I’m confused about what the next books are going to be about and if they are going to be connected to this one.

Characters

Marguerite was a decent character. I rooted for her. The main issue that I had with her and several other characters in this book is that they felt a little plain. There was not really a defining moment for them. If I had to describe any of them, I am not sure if I could find words because the characterization was a little lacking to some degree.  Hopefully, these problems will be fixed in the next installments and we will learn more about these characters.

Final Analysis

A Thousand Pieces of You is a fast paced and interesting science fiction YA book. The characters were weak and the romance felt dominating at times, but all and all it is worth the read.
