I can not wait for the third book in this series to come out! I'm DYING to know what happens.
I hated having to turn off my audible so I could go about my day. This book made my commute one of the best parts of my day, which is a feat, as I live in NYC.
I laughed, I cried, I raved, I ranted.....god I love this book.
If you're expecting the tv show, you have got another thing coming. This is a real life account of Piper Kerman's life in prison, and it is beautifully written, compelling, with a serious call to action on the state of today's prison system.
While I love the tv show....I loved this book, for completely different reasons. Trust me, it's a good one.
I listen to quite a bit of YA supernatural or dystopian novels...i.e. your Hunger Games, your Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices, your Pures, Lunar Chronicles, Shatter Me's, Divergents, etc. The Bone Season fits in well to the genre. I didn't love it as much as I loved Hunger Games or Harry Potter, or the Pure series, but it exists in a really cool world with an almost film noir feel to it.
Sometimes, especially in the beginning, I had no idea what the hell was going on in this universe. I am not sure but I think there was a kind of map or chart which shows the reader the different kinds of clairvoyants, or something to that nature. I didn't have that, so I was SUPER confused as to what she was talking about...
That being said, once she gets to Sheol 1, I started getting a better idea of the different kinds of clairvoyants existing in the Bone Season universe.....but...i could still not tell you the difference between an Auger and a Clairomancer or whatever......
I did really like the book though. I am excited to see what happens next to Paige and the seals.
I would certainly read it again. It is really engrossing, and superbly written. The prose the author uses is just dripping with beautiful descriptions of places I have never been, but wish I could go.
Just as good. She was one of the readers of Pure by Juliana Baggott, and her voice lends itself perfectly.
I loved this book and so far, I love this series. I listen to it on the subway and laugh out loud, making people around me think I am a crazy person. If you need lighthearted supernatural fluff, this is the book for you.
I was super into the book, the story is great, and engrossing. The narrator, on the other hand? Just. Awful.
