my_thoughts-2022736944.pngCarve the Mark was a hugely anticipated book in my TBR and I was happy to finally read this one and remove it from TBR pile . MmEz_f-maxage-0_s-200x150.gif

Now the important question : Did the book live up to the hype? But sadly I have to say that this book don’t live up to my expectations as I predicted before handedly. The pacing was a tad slow . It took to much time for the reach to the climax . But inspite of all the happenings , I still enjoyed the book of Veronica Roth. . The fight sequences are well imagined and well written. Also the the dystopian world is fascinating . The people possed Energy currents. The book sometimes turn dark and depressing but after all it’s a dystopian world .

The characters of Akos and Cyra are beautifully crafted and well written . They are the essential part of the book. The book has sizeable side characters and I liked reading about them. The book begin with a map of their galaxy which acted as a bonus. pretty-book-bench-nature-water-outdoors-animated-gif-1.gif

FINAL VERDICT:

Expect the slow pacing , everything was nearly perfect . The storyline and character development was very good. I think I would definitely love to read it’s sequel which is coming up on 2018.Carve the Mark is Veronica Roth’s stunning portrayal of the power of friendship β€” and love β€” in a galaxy filled with unexpected gifts.

  1. I saw this at the bookstore the other day. I was really curious about it, but now that you mentioned the slow paced style of this book I’m a bit disappointed. I’m not a fan of such books. Hmmm. Will still try and read this though. πŸ˜ƒ

  2. So, this book was on my TBR, I even checked it out from my library as an ebook but then it just sat there for 3 weeks. I could not bring myself to actually read it. I think it was because I had read an excerpt and it mentioned a love triangle or something like that and I was burned out on those at that point. Your post makes me want to give it another chance though so thank you!

    1. Don’t worry there is nothing like love triangle in this book . This one is a dystopian duology book by Veronica Roth . And yeah !! Let me tell you excerpt can be deceptive sometimes ☺
      And I strongly feel that you should definitely give this book a second chance .
      Happy Reading πŸ“–!
