    One thought on “The Bone Season”

    1. At first, I found the world a little confusing but as I got more into the book it's became clearer. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator was phenomenal! Great at accents!3.65 stars!

    2. I really, really wanted to like this book. It sounds stupid but I actually feel slightly guilty at how disappointed I was with it and I think the main reason is because the author is a British student of the same age as me and, as soon as I learned that, I really wanted her to succeed. I really wanted Shannon to be the next J.K.Rowling, as some are calling her. I really wanted her debut to take me out of this world and leave me desperate to get my hands on the next installment. However, I just d [...]

    3. In short: the publisher's overblown hype set this book up for judgment and failure, but the book itself provided the rope.I hate hype. The thing about hype is that it---unfairly, at times---sets the bar up so high that there is really nowhere to go but down. This is true especially in the case of such a young author. You throw in the name Bloomsbury, and the "seven book series" bit, and the J.K. Rowling comparison surely comes. It certainly sets standards extremely high, unrealistically high, th [...]

    4. Actual rating: 3.5 starsThe Bone Season is easily the most hyped book of 2013, surpassing even the conclusion of the Divergent series, Allegiant. As the first in a seven book series, it's already been optioned for a movie and did appear on the New York Times Bestsellers list its debut week. But when I heard the magical words "the next J.K. Rowling" my interest, along with many, was instantly piqued due to my severe lack of will-power. But like any book surrounded by a massive amount of hype, the [...]

    5. ALL SPOILERS ARE HIDDENThis book is disgusting. My skin was crawling with revulsion while I read it.The first part - the first three chapters - were already upsetting me. It's an alternate reality England. 200 years ago, some humans started becoming clairvoyant. It's unclear whether this was triggered by something or if it was something that always existed, hidden from the sight of amaurotics (her word for non-clairvoyants). Paige is a clairvoyant, and clairvoyants are hunted, tortured and kille [...]

    6. ❝Knowledge is dangerous. Once you know something, you can't get rid of it. You have to carry it. Always.❞Wellllll. This one is a bit tough to rate and review. It was a great book BUT it definitely had its "huh???" moments. Let me start off by saying that this world is DENSE. Holy crap. I cannot put a finger on this worldbuilding. It's like I get it, but I don't. You read it and you're like WHAT IS GOING ON, but it just flows anyways even with a big question mark floating above your head. It' [...]

    7. Um . . . . I can't even begin to explain the stuff in this book. You will have to read it or read some other review. But, I freaking loved it! How? I don't know, I'm weird that way. Note: There is a glossary in the back to help with the book. I should probably have studied it but it's all good! Paige gets taken by these people things and is turned into a slave. She gets the better person thing as her master. His name is Arcturus but he's called Warden. I liked him. Yeah, he was a slave owner but [...]

    8. TW : SlaveryIf I had to describe my relationship with The Bone Season in one gif : ① The narrative is choppy and bounces constantly between different subjects without transition. The author is young and it shows : the information about the world is shared rather clumsily through infodump and awkward flashbacks when it suits the author to do so. I didn't complain in the beginning, because I was interested in knowing more about the world. When it went on during the whole book, though? TOO MUCH. [...]

    9. “This was what my spirit longed to do, to wander in strange lands. It couldn't stand being trapped in one body all the time. It had wanderlust.”This was the Life & Lit book of the month for July, and while I honestly didn't know what to expect and wasn't feeling particularly enthusiastic about starting this series, I was shocked by how much I loved this book! This was more of a 4.5 star read for me, but I didn't feel good about rounding down for this one.✘ PLOTIn the future, the govern [...]

    10. Perhaps closer to a 3.75? Really like the concept, such a fascinating world and characters. There were some times where a lot of information is given at once, but definitely enjoyed it.

    11. This book was so addicting, yet so unnecessarily long for me! Which is even more absurd to say, because so much of this world building was difficult to comprehend; you'd think that the extra length would be helpful, but it wasn't. Like, this chart saved my life:You see this chart before chapter one, but you don't realize how much you actually need this chart until all these different clairvoyant names start getting thrown at you, and it is the only reference you have to help you not feel complet [...]

    12. I see why a lot of people LOVE this book (because the idea is fascinating), but it really wasn't my thing. The basic idea is that the Rephaim came from the Netherworld and turned what used to be Oxford into a training ground/prison for clairvoyant humans. The Rephaim control our world and don't destroy it in exchange for those humans fighting the flesh-eating Emim that share the Netherworld. Clairvoyant humans are collected and brought in every decade in what's known as a Bone Season, where they [...]

    13. Curse you Samantha Shannon!!! You go and create this amazingly original book, and then make me wait for the rest?! I'm not going to make it. If you need me to *ahem* check the future books formethingI'm more than willing. Jus'sayin. Now on to the book review!!All clairvoyance was prohibited, of course, but the kind that made money was a downright sin. They had a special term for it: mime-crime.This story is incredibly original (for me), and really intense! Though I really loved it, there are som [...]

    14. First read in March 2015Fantastic is an understatement.The Bone Season absolutely blew me away. Such a fantastically written book, with a gripping plot, amazing characters and original setting and ideas. I flew through it, despite the rocky beginning - there’s quite a lot of information presented, which can make it difficult for the reader to connect, but once you get pass that, you will not want to put this book down. It’s imaginative, it presents a fresh setting and it’s a riveting read. [...]

    15. Original Read: January 1st - January 8th, 2016Re-read: March 1st - March 19th, 2017My original rating and thoughts still stand. This book starts out slow and confusing, even after my 2nd time reading this, it's still a bit confusing. But I love the world that Shannon has built in this series and I'm so excited to get to The Song Rising to see what else she has in store for this series.On to book 2.************************Original Review:4.5 Stars**This will probably be long and confusing and kin [...]

    16. There’s a lot wrong with this book I heard lots of praise about this book prior to reading it. It is supposed to be some kind of novel that is representative of female fantasy novelists, and the rising popularity of them. Apparently this novel is leading the charge for women writers claiming the fantasy genre. Well if that was true, which it isn’t, then this charge is a lost cause because this novel is incredibly average. Not to mention the fact that the actual forerunner of female fantasy w [...]

    17. GUYS! WHAT A BOOK! ah, I still can't believe that something this awesome had escaped my knowledge! this book is amazing and I am so jealous of the world that Shannon has created! truly, truly a masterpiece. if you're a fan of awesome fantasies & glorious world building then this is the book for you!seriously, read this book! it's a bit hard to start but after 50 pages, you get it. and I would recommend listening to the audiobook because there were so many words that I would have mispronounce [...]

    18. This book was an absolute nightmare. One of the worst books - no, one of the worst things I've ever read. Even marking it as 'read' is a push, since I hardcore skimmed the last hundred pages. It was appalling: so boring I felt like a weary, dry, ugly husk as I laboured over every indecipherable page. It was slow, painful, filled with depthless characters. But it falls into exactly the same trap as Truthwitch, which is to deliver the most bewildering world building with little to no explanation. [...]

    19. The Bone Season is a highly original and engaging read.The Bone Season has been classed as an ‘Adult’ book by the publisher, but it definitely has crossover appeal. It features characters that are 18+, touches on adult themes, and contains curse words (not much.) As someone who is over the age of 18 I would love to see more books like this, as it offers the best of both worlds – not YA, but not quite adult either. When I first heard the term 'New Adult' this is what I thought it would be. [...]

    20. Edit: So, it's only been a few days - I think just two days actually - and I can't stop thinking about this book. The characters. The world. So good. So damn good! I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK. I went into this with no expectations at all and not knowing what it would be about, and I think that's definitely the best approach, and holy hell, I loved every minute of it! Books that I find difficult to put down or give me heart palpitations are always, of course, great and memorable reads for me. Here's the [...]

    21. To say that this author is the next JK Rowling is like saying I'm the incarnation of Tolkien on steroid.Brace yourself, this review is gonna be ugly. I wish the system had allowed me to rate a book lower than 1, because I don't simply 'not like it'. When I finished reading, I wonder if the people at Bloomsburry were on Floxy when they decided to publish this book. It is BORING. There is nothing new or ground-breaking here. It's just the same old ideas stuffed in a lackluster plot and contrived s [...]

    22. 4.5 stars! I loved this and immediately ordered the second book! Which I've read since rating this without reviewing it so I can say I also loved it and am excited for the rest of the series.What I loved most about this book was how Samantha combined paranormal urban fantasy with clairvoyance and an angel-like race of people with a dystopian London full of scary laws and crime. She did this so flawlessly and I really love the world-building. While it could be info-dumpy this didn't actually both [...]

    23. 2.5 StarsBuddy Read January 16, 2015 with Annette, Athena (Shardbearer), Michelle, Shandra, Kristen, Kerry, Jamie, Julie, and Andrew at Buddies Books and Baubles I can definitely see why so many people have enjoyed this story. I enjoyed it too, not a huge 5 star kind of enjoy but enough that even though I’m giving it a 2.5 stars I am going to read the next book.Now any other series starting with a 2 star I might not continue with but there is a ton of potential and this is her first book I exp [...]

    24. First read: June 1-3, 2014Re-read: August 21-22, 2016"The Bone Season" is remarkable. It is unique. It is a work of an extremely talented young lady (she's only 22 years old! What?!). And it is the start to a series that I am so glad to have found early on. At the same time, I now have to torturously wait for the following installments.Paige Maloney is a dreamwalker, a type of clairvoyant that can invade the aether without any help from numen, and she is discovering her talent allows her to atta [...]

    25. Paige is an unnatural who works for one of the mimelords in the future where London is plagued with people who can hear, speak and converse with spirits. She is different from the rest and having that ability makes her valuable enough to be kidnapped. Her captors take her to a place where she didn't know existed and there she will find a world that she never knew existed.I don't even know how I was going to write this review, but alas it was easier than I thought it would be. I found it refreshi [...]

    26. Going into this book was stepping out of my comfort zone. This book is sci-fi and fantasy combined into one, and I'm not good at either of those. However, I was intrigued by all the great reviews out there and I finally started reading. I was planning on taking my time with this book, especially because I had heard that the beginning could be quite confusing. However, here I am now, 1 1/2 day later - I have finished the book and I am left with a hollow feeling inside. This story took me by surpr [...]

    27. This was a great book and I really, really enjoyed reading it. The world Samantha Shannon has created is a very interesting one and I loved how it was a little more complex than your usual YA fantasy world. Once I'd gotten into the book, it was a very gripping and quick read and I quickly became fond of most of the main characters. So overall, this was a really enjoyable read but especially towards the end of the novel, many parts felt like they were just a mixture of popular other YA books like [...]

    28. Godina je 2059. Pejdž Mahoni (19 godina) živi u scionskoj republici London (London je 1929.gao Prva scionska citadela) i deo je londonskog zločinačkog podzemlja pod imenom Scila. Ona je Vidovnjak, Šetačica snovima, Neprirodna. Scion je upravo i nastao kao odgovor na novootkrivenu pretnju Kraljevstvu, na „epidemiju vidovnjaštva“. Vidovnjaci se smatraju najgorim zločincima, otpadnicima, oni su pošast koja mora biti iskorenjena. Postoje i posebne jedinice čiji je zadatak da love Vidov [...]

    29. This was the local YA Book Club pick of the month for August!The Bone Season is set in one of my favourite cities Oxford but not as I remember it. Paige is a dreamwalker that is such a badass character with no moaning about at all, she knew what her targets were and was prepared to take risks. The novel was full of thrills, moments that really changed my first perspective completely and no overall dominating romance plot which was refreshing to see. This would have been a 5 star read but sadly, [...]

    30. Finally a book with action! No love triangles, no drama or whining, no catfights, no complicated irritated love. Just a badass main character who knows what she wants and fights for her friends. This book is fast paced, beautifully written and has an amazing, creative world building. Unfortunately the beginning is really vague and complicated and due to that it takes a really long time to get comfortable with all the new terms and slang.”Paige Mahoney is living a dual life hiding who she is fr [...]
