Review : A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1) by Claudia Gray

“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.”

I had weird, mixed feelings about this book. The first thing that really hit me was that the romance was the most important part of the story. I felt like the rest of it, the traveling, the mystery, it all came after the romance. it wasn’t that awesome either, we have a love triangle, which i don’t really like. I found the storyline interesting enough most of the time, but there’s a lot of time when i was bored. I also felt like we were being dropped in the middle of the story, like i was missing an information. This info is found in many flashbacks. I don’t mind flashbacks, but in this case, i felt like it broke the pace of the main story. I really didn’t care much about the characters. They were abit dull. The main character was the worst, i didn’t hate her, i just think she had no personnality. 

So, interesting concept, good writing, but this book felt abit meh to me…i don’t think i’ll be reading the rest of the series.
