It was so compelling that even though I started reading it as a borrowed audiobook from the library I went and ordered a hardcover copy for myself before I was even done. It's just so compelling and the feminist in me was sated by every tiny rebellion. If you want a book for a young woman who needs to see that she has more value than her physical beauty, that she shouldn't feel beholden to society's ideas of what being beautiful or female are I cannot recommend this book enough. And if you're a young woman who desires these things for yourself I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. Sure, it's a bit romantic and it has a mystery and it's a bit of a fairytale but by nature fairytales were intended to teach lessons.
There are a lot of books I consider must reads but this is definitely one of the first I wished I could send back through time into my own teenage hands. Teen me would have very much appreciated this book as much as adult me did.
I found the book to be unfinished at times. There were some cool concepts/ideas, but at the same time those ideas that shape the world only feel partially explored. This also leads to the characters feel very surface-level. We get some peeks in, but not enough to make them feely fully developed. Still, there was enough promise in the first one and the ending was interesting enough that I would read the 2nd book. Stray might have been more about setting the scene then having the book stand on its own. Hopefully the 2nd delivers on the promise of better things to come.
If your idea of good reading is a selection of loosely connected anecdote, go for it. If you're looking for something more substantial don't bother.
