I couldn't get past the ghastly information dump that is the first chapter. Destined to become the next Twilight.

Bloomsbury's marketing department should get an award for this book. The author, on the other hand, should not.

The Bone Season isn't outrageously terrible. I didn't have to push myself to finish it. I'll say at the outset that although I love dystopian fiction, the summary left me iffy on whether it would be my taste or not. The problem turned out to be less my personal preferences and more flaws within the novel. There's an art to building a fictional world so that it's realistic but doesn't read like the author's backstory notes, and this fails--too much of it feels like she got so involved in the world-building that she simply sticks it in, and unevenly at that. Some questions are answered too thoroughly; others not at all... though knowing that this is a planned seven book series, I suspect some of it may have been saved for sequels. In some ways it feels a lot like a low-rent Dune in construction, including maps, glossary, and complex lingo/backstory.

The characters aren't terribly complex or interesting--they fall too much into stock types. The prose is acceptable but reliant on clichés.

I have no idea how she's planning to stretch this out for seven books, and I don't plan on sticking around to find out. ( )

I have mixed thoughts about this novel. The beginning was confusing but very interesting. The middle was boring. The end was exciting & fast.

There were too many characters, too many political threads. It was like looking at the wrong end of the tapestry I couldn't understand anything!

Since this is supposed to be a 7 book long series, I understand why the author might have gone with this kind of plotting style. But it's giving me commitment phobia as I am dreading the fact that I have to read a few more books just to understand what on earth is going on.

I am super intrigued by the world though and I can only imagine the amazing political machinations that we might see in the next books.

I also loved the slow burn romance in this book, there's just a tiny hint of romance, a teaser more like but I held on to it like a drowning person holds on to a block of wood! Can't wait for this romance to blossom.

I enjoyed the characterizations too, though there are simply too many characters for my tiny brain to wrap around. No surprise that arcturus & Nick were my favourite characters and surprisingly I liked Paige a lot as well. Usually it takes a lot for me to like the main protaganist.

All in all it was a good read. I am not sure if I'll continue with the series. I might pick it up if the right mood strikes or if somebody convinces me enough with their recommendation. ( )

Mixed. Didn't quite appeal to me and I'm not sure why. I loved her previous work Priory of the Orange Tree, and this has some of the same feel, but is quite different in many ways especially the very different setting.

Quite a rare thing to have an urban fantasy set in a future history. It's one of the disappointments, as there seems to be little reason to have set it so far ahead in time, (2050s) with nothing interesting to show for it, other that to see how the new orwellian oversight has constricted growth. It's not enemies of the state that our sought out, but clairvoyants. It's not quite clear what happened, but Henry VII partook of one seance too many and opened a portal to the spirit world that's never been shut. not only did more ghosts and spirits linger, but more humans were able to see and influence them, and not only ghosts were drawn but two other races, humanoid Reph and somewhat more beastial Elrim. In response the governments created Scion an agreement with the Reph to control the clairvoyants and use them to defend against the Elrim. Voyants became known as unnatural and were ostracized and hunted down, but that didn't stop gangs of them successfully living in all the cities using their abilities to avoid detection.

Paige is one such a particularly rare form of gifted ability to jump or leave her own body and visit/invade another's mind. There is no such thing as formal training, but she's been trying to learn and was quickly appreciated by one of London's gangs. However one day she can't avoid all the watchers and she's caught and sent to the Reph camp, where her rarity marks her out for special attention, and she has to decide just how much she's prepared to cope, and whom to trust.

I generally like single character viewpoints, but it does rely on that character being relatable and Paige isn't really. I think mostly it's all just a bit too rushed, too many different types of voyant with no clear understanding of their differences or why it matters (only a few skills are ever explained). Apart fro one notable exception at he end all the spirits just become objects to be used - gathered into 'spools' and thrown and an opponent without permission or consequence. There's politics within the gangs, between the gangs, within and between the Reph and the human government, and Paige doesn't experience enough of any of them to matter. She cares about a few characters, but we only get to see these for a few pages in total and so they don't feel meaningful. Liekwise her 200yr old romance is both very sudden, very rushed and quite icky.

Sort of Hungergames feel to it, or any YA dystopia but with the novel twist of the spirit world as a backdrop - I think it may not have needed the dystopian setting to have worked better. I'm undecided whether I'll continue the rest of the series. ( )

Oddly enough, it was refreshing to read a book I have no opinions on. This book was simply okay. I wasn't overjoyed by it, but I don't feel like I wasted my time reading it.

I found a lot of elements in this book I'd read before. It was easy to tell, but the author managed to avoid making her trope-filled book seem cliche, so hats off to Samantha Shannon. I found there wasn't much world building either.

There was a lot of words and abbreviations, so many that I lost count (and I can keep The Lord of the Rings characters straight). I like how she tried to introduce it all, having the characters throw the terms around naturally, but while it felt real, it was hard to follow and understand. There was a glossary in the back, but I did not know that until I finished the novel and by then I didn't really care.

This book is good for anyone who is looking for a good read with a bit of mindlessness. ( )
