Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
Six of Crows can probably best be described as "Oceans Eleven in a fantasy universe." A gang of criminals can get immensely rich, beyond their wildest dreams, if they pull off an impossible crime - in this case, breaking a man out of the world's toughest prison.
It manages to be a good read despite having 6 or 7 narrators. My heart drops as a general rule when I see that many narrators listed, because mostly authors can't pull off that much character creation. Leigh Bardugo did a pretty good job here - she labels the narrator of each chapter up front (so you don't have to guess), doesn't switch in mid-chapter or even mid-paragraph (I've seen that, and it's not pretty), and they're each distinct characters - you can tell them apart, they all have believable motivations, and they each read differently.
Bardugo does not info dump, I am thankful to say.
The novel ends on quite a cliffhanger. (I was not happy, as I was under the impression that this was a stand alone. Also my library does not have the sequel.)
I was also not happy that the novel ended at 76% of the ebook. Did we really need a quarter of the space for not one, but two previews of other books?
