Six of Crows Book Review

Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo

What everyone has been saying is true. Six of Crows is really really good. The world building is brilliant. The multiple POV'S work really well throughout the story. The relationships, arguing and characterization is pretty brilliant. It's not my favorite book out there but I did really love it. 

 

A scrappy crew of teenagers band together to break into the Ice Court and get the gold. The task? Do it without getting killed. Kaz and his band of minions (as I like to call them) barely know each other. There's Nina and Mathias with a background and a big secret. Wyland, a young  boy. Jesper and Inaj with stories of their own. All band together for one thing, greed and maybe the possibility of belonging. 

 

I shipped Nina and Mathias so hard in this book and I can't wait to read more about them. I loved all of the POV'S but I connected much more with these two. 

 

The audio-book is what keeps me from giving it five stars. There was a bit of a disconnect because there were multiple narrators but they didn't read their characters within the other POV'S. I majorly disliked that. It was clear they read separately. If you're going to have a full cast in an audio-book I strongly feel they should be narrating their characters throughout the entire book - not just certain chapters.
