A thousand Pieces Of You, keeps you captivated the whole way through and keeps you quickly flipping pages to know what obscurities are yet to follow. I really liked how this book explores intricate universes where fate can be considered as uncontrollable, the truth being ambiguous and love becoming one of the biggest mysteries. This book was thoroughly enjoyable and definitely one which I would recommend to readers who are 13 years and over and also to readers who do enjoy books which incorporate science and the manipulation of reality. However don't let this, turn you off as it does incorporate romance and lots of mystery making it a book perfect to just about everyone.
I'm speechless in regards to the books ending, shocking and exhilarating though don't worry it continues, being a trilogy. This book is written by NY times best selling author, Claudia Gray and her skill definitely evident throughout the book!
