Oh my God. OH MY GOD. HOLY HELL. That was just … overwhelming, to say the least. The whole concept was literally breathtaking and astounding. I’ve never felt this way towards any sci-fi/fantasy book, and no, I’m not comparing this to any of the books I’ve previously read. But wow, Woahhh. This was one hell of a book. First things first, Claudia Gray, you’re such a brilliant person. I wouldn’t change a single thing about this stunning world you’ve created. I never knew you could take writing a novel to such a whole new level, but you did. And the first couple of chapters rendered me speechless, the whole idea of alternative universes and different dimensions was so bizarre yet so damn compelling. I would never categorize this as a fantasy, because the author kind of, kind of, justified the whole idea scientifically, which was absolutely awesome. And when I began understanding what was happening, I just thought, wow, this takes adding a sequel to this series and writing fanfiction to another level. If there are at least one thousand dimensions of the same person, think of how many stories you’d write, about this person only, let alone the seven billion others with their own one thousand (plus) dimensions. Thinking about that alone gives me the creeps but its honestly SO FRIGGIN AMAZING.
So yeah, I definitely enjoyed reading this book. Spent a lot of time pondering. Spent a lot of time swooning because Damn, Physics can be pretty romantic, steamy, and hot, yeah mostly hot. I really want to say more about this masterpiece but I can’t do that without spoiling so…
Cloud Atlas meets Orphan Black in this epic dimension-bending trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray about a girl who must chase her father’s killer through multiple dimensions.
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.
A Thousand Pieces of You explores an amazingly intricate multi-universe where fate is unavoidable, the truth elusive, and love the greatest mystery of all.
