So a few weeks ago, I finished reading Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows and I almost forgot to review it.
Truthfully, I was a bit hesitant whether or not I will like this book or not because I don’t prefer Fantasy books that much. However, after reading this book, I guess I will try and give more chances to Fantasy genre now.
Six of Crows
Amsterdam inspired–Ketterdam, a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…He needs a crew and they are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction–if they don’t kill each other first.
I think the story went quite smoothly. The characters evolved with the perfect flow and rhythm as well. The author describes the places and the situations adroitly which makes the reader want to keep on reading. The characters were defining and I could sometimes sympathize with them. It’s definitely a page turner. However, there were a lot of cliche scenes/scenarios that people are familiar with and that sometimes would take the excitement away. Nonetheless, it was an interesting read and I would surely recommend to people who love heist with a bit of magic.
Words to describe this book:-
Amusing. Interesting. Magical. Exciting.
