åAs another reviewer describes it, Shannon’s characters seem to be more furniture set out in her world rather than actual people readers can empathise with and root for.
I would say that while there are some good things going on in The Bone Season, there are also some irritating flaws that might put some readers off.
So, should you pick up this book? Perhaps for a different type of read – think alien overlords and ESP – or perhaps to satisfy your curiosity about the hype. It won’t be a totally bad read, just perhaps less satisfying than it should be, especially with its many loose ends.
