“Mitch was smiling so big his back teeth shone in the soft light of the solarpowered lamp we'd scavenged from someone's shed.


That ending was exactly what I'd wanted from this book, without even knowing it. I'm shaking, and crying just a bit. This book was incredibly good, heartbreaking, emotional, and thoroughly affecting. The pace in the beginning was maybe a little slow in my opinion but after that it was fantastic, both pace-wise and in every other way. I loved the characters, the writing, the futuristic wild-ish-nature setting, the POV and unbelievably (not really?) enough, everything else. It was all very great, and it felt very real and raw to me.

I've never read anything quite like The Marrow Thieves before, but I will easily look for more books like it in the future (starting today). I really recommend this book to all of you out there!

What is it about?

Humanity has nearly destroyed its world through global warming, but now an even greater evil lurks. The indigenous people of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream. In this dark world, Frenchie and his companions struggle to survive as they make their way up north to the old lands. For now, survival means staying hidden … but what they don’t know is that one of them holds the secret to defeating the marrow thieves.

Have you read this book? What did you think? :)
