I never rate books, but I enjoyed this enough to think it worth it this time. Most enjoyable for me was the philosophical question of personhood tackled in a different way. As with most YA books, both books--Partials and Fragments--address personhood with the typical "coming of age" motif. The more intriguing addition to the mix are the questions of "what is human" and "what does it mean to be responsible with technology". Obviously these books are planned as a series and the ending was definitely designed to hook the reader for the next book, which it did for me. Bastard. An enjoyable read.
Huh...maybe this will actually live up to the brand of a comparison such as "If you like Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson..."
It definitely has the epic feel and you can definitely see influences from those two giants of modern fantasy literature. But the main compelling plot and twists on notions of time and....well, maybe you should just read it
