A dystopian world that has a lot of time-weav This review is also available over at my blog. Oh, and at one point she is being sent to a hotel alone to meet him, and is warned by a guard that he may do things that would require her to defend herself by ‘a knee to the crotch’ Hollie rated it really liked it Nov 04, Series of tragedy then confronts her because of people hungry for power and are willing to dispose anything or anyone just to have her docile.
Kissing when gennifre should be running?
Oh, and blurting shit out such as secret powers and secret plans in the grounds in earshot of a guard is fine as long as you clap your hand over your mouth afterwards or drag someone into an empty room which coincidentally is free from CCTV. And don’t even get me started on how she treats the man who has potentially massacred her entire family, and then forced her to travel with him endlessly smiling and posing for pictures. Moan about the bath? Come back nice Pyranna I loved you!!!!!!!
Like I said, the world is given to us in layers, but so is the plot – and the more I read, the faster I needed to turn the page.
I just really hate books that build you up for something big, then let you down with a truly crap story.
Complex ethical questions are hinted at — though mostly tennifer over — and Albin uses her secondary characters to gnnifer and criticise the restrictive world of Arras, including their enforced notions of gender equality, sexuality and free will. Initial critical reception for Crewel has been mixed to positive,    with Redbook listing the book as a recommended read. While I appreciate that the love triangle was not quite as apparent as it is in some dystopian books, it still remained one of the main points of the story, and feeling indifferent to both Adelice and the two love interests didn’t help much in my case.
Not happy at all. Is it because I haven’t been allowed to interact with the opposite sex? In fact I’m sure this story is inspired by the strings theory Am I the only person who had a few moments of brain trauma while trying to figure out this world within a world uh Customers who bought this item also bought.
It can change how a person acts and thinks. Jill Hart rated it it was amazing Dec 19, Things like that are definitely of matter of taste. Plus, I had all these questions, like, if they remove someones thread, which basically means that they die, do they just disappear?
Her parents try to hide her, only for the Guild to attack the family, seemingly killing Adelice’s parents and carting away her little sister. I’ll award Crewel a happily confuzzled 3.
You can depend on the evil women to be emotional, lashing out and sometimes hysterical. Preview — Crewel by Gennifer Albin. When you’ve been betrayed, when you go through unimaginable ordeals, you grow up.
Crewel (Crewel World, #1) by Gennifer Albin
The reason this book even got the one star I gave it, is the weave itself. However, the flippant and disrespectful manner in which Gennifee treats her captors is crewsl consequence free and nothing particularly bad happens genniferr all. Everything needed is included, and in wonderful ways that suck you into the story. See all reviews. We all know that dystopian novels are about fixing the wrongs on Earth and restoring control, so really, this is nothing new.
But slbin Adelice has deemed them all ignorant and unimportant, it’s fine that they are basically slaves til the end of their days. It really reminded me of ‘The Selection’ in that way; the heroine has this irritating mock-modesty and humility and hatred of femininity yet the book is teeming with dresses and balls.
The girls that show promise are taken away in the night and put to work weaving the world around them. Upon first impression, I thought this book was going to be another version of The Selection where shoddy world building was going to be excused because of the distraction of two cute boys vying for the lead female’s attention.
