Book review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Grey

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.

My rating 4/stars my-thoughts

I went into this not knowing what I was going to think of it the concept was intriguing but I’d heard some mixed things about it after reading it I’m surprised it’s not more popular. The alternative dimensions are supper cool and thankfully the way it all works isn’t confusing at least I didn’t think so. The main character Margaret is the only person in this book who isn’t a genius she like the reader knows nothing and is always asking questions information is gradually given, there’s no overwhelming amount of information dumped on you. 

The dimensions themselves are so fun since literally anything can happen I loved the Russian dimension and how this book has a little of everything it’s part sifi adventure part historical romance. Each time they jump to a dimension it’s exiting you don’t know what kind of world their going to end up in I’m excited about what imaginative worlds are in store for the next two books. Sadly I saw all of the major plot points coming but it was a good plot, while being surprised is nice when you read a lot of books it gets harder to be surprised. I’m okay with predictable plots as long as it’s still a good and well written story.

I couldn’t really connect to the characters, they didn’t stand out from the dozens of characters I’ve read about. I did think they were still good fully developed characters. The worst thing is the love triangle it was a little annoying but even it was not as bad as a lot of other love triangles. I really don’t have any big complaints there all just small things it’s a great book and the covers are amazing there some of my favorite covers ever, and while the story isn’t as good as the cover it’s still very enjoyable.

  1. I’ve been debating about whether to read this one and after this review I think I might give it a try. The concept sounds intriguing and I’m the same as you, I don’t mind if it’s predictable, as long as the story is good!
