Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
My Thoughts: Going into this book I didn’t really have any expectations, but I did think that I was going to like it a lot more than I did. I feel like for it being a dimensional travel book there wasn’t that much action or “chase” going on. I did really like our main character Marguerite though. I thought she was great other than the fact that it took her so long to realize something that should have been obvious about halfway through the book. I really liked Paul as well however I wasn’t the biggest fan of Theo from the very start of the story. The actual plot of the story was good. There were a few things that happened that I didn’t expect to happen. I will be picking up the next two books in the trilogy next month because I would like to see how everything wraps up in the end. Overall, it was good but it wasn’t great.
