“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. ”
I absolutely loved this book. LOVED it.
I’m not even going to lie, this was a complete cover buy. I had kept seeing the cover on Instagram over and over. I finally decided to buy it because well look at that cover! I was soo happy when it turned out to be an amazing book!
From the very first page I was interested in it, which has been really hard to find in the books I’ve been reading lately. The world created here was easy to understand and really good.
I am also a sucker for books that have love triangles. Although I always seem to go for the guys that aren’t the right choice. This book definitely has that. Twists and turns, not just in the plot but in the triangle as well.
I just loved everything about this book. Everything. There’s good quotes, makes you think, is interesting, well developed characters, amazing writing.
I’ll leave with a quote that might be semi spoilerish so you might want to stop reading here if you haven’t read the book, but this quote was just too amazing to not post. Well done Claudia Gray!
“I meant it when I said I didn’t believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really, truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone, and they glimpse the truth within you. In that moment, you don’t belong to him; part of him belongs to you. After that, you can’t take it back, no matter how much you want to, no matter how hard you try.”
