Review: The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline (Spoiler-Free)
Objectively speaking this book is worth five stars. Unfortunately for me, the circumstances in which I read this book made it a four. I know, it’s unfair, but that’s just how it goes. Because I started this book right before band camp, I put it down for a long period of time before picking it back up again, and I think that caused it to lose some of its impact for me. This is a serious case of the problem is not you, it's me.
The Marrow Thieves sounds like a typical YA dystopian, but it honestly reads a lot more like historical fiction. The story is raw and impactful and depicts a horrifying version of the future that seems like it could be all too realistic.
So many scenes in this book were heartbreaking, and are ones that I will never forget.
Overall I found this book to be very interesting and heartbreaking in more ways than one.
