Hi, my name is Kim and I am addicted to books. See? I can admit it!!
I absolutely loved the first novel in this series, A Thousand Pieces of You, and this book was just as good. The story is woven throughout the multiverse as Marguerite fights to save both Paul and Theo. And like the first book, this one makes you think about life, choices, and their unforeseen ramifications.
The events of the first novel changed Marguerite, changed her perspective on life and her beliefs about it. Travelling through the multiverse and seeing the "what if's" has opened her eyes to how different choices can lead to vastly different lives. But those beliefs get tested yet again as she travels through more dimensions and finds unexpected versions of the people she loves. Those versions make her question everything.
And much like the first novel, the lines between good and evil are often blurred. Whose intentions are good, causing them to do questionable things? Whose intentions are just plain evil? It is this kind of gray area that makes this such a thought-provoking series. How far would you go to save the ones you love? How far is too far? Is there such a thing as too far? These are just some of the questions that Marguerite has to answer.
The dimensions exist during the same period of time, but it is fascinating to see the different ways in which they have evolved. To think about what that means, in terms of multiverse theory, is incredible. The Russiaverse, a throwback in time. The Home Office, a vision of the future. The New York-verse, an alternate reality. Each dimension has different versions of our characters, making them all ever more complex.
The story and its premise are, simply put, fascinating! I couldn't recommend this more!
