"The Bone Clocks" was a massive disappointment. Full of characters I didn't care for and plot points that didn't have any relevance to the story whatsoever, I struggled to finish this book and am glad to have returned it to the library. Holly Sykes was a great character but those around her didn't add much to the story and just made it drag on and on and on. I didn't hate it, but I couldn't love it so "The Bone Clocks" gets 2 stars from me.
Kooky and creepy, this story is completely different to things I've read before. This well crafted story is full of twists and turns which make this an engaging page turner that kept me gripped. I'm giving David Mitchell's seventh novel, "Slade House", five stars and adding Mitchell's 2014 book "The Bone Clocks", which I've heard is along the same theme, to my wish list.
I wanted to love it, but this story just didn't do anything for me. "My Grandmother Sends her Regards & Apologies" scores a disappointing 2 stars.
