Book Review: The Diviners - Book One

The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)

The Diviners

By: Libba Bray

Genre: YA fiction

Pages: 578

Published: 2012

Read: January

Stars: 3 out of 5

I have heard Libba Bray speak at the Austin Teen Book Festival in September 2012. I mention this fact because since the novel is written in 3rd person, I "heard" Bray’s voice narratoring the novel. While I wasn’t connecting enthusiastically with the story until over half way through I had felt Bray did a great job developing the characters and by the last half of the novel I felt I knew the characters and their voices. I was hoping to see more of Memphis and Theta in the story line, but perhaps that is part of book 2 in the trilogy. While the book’s main focus is the special and unique divining skills of the main characters there is a great mystery too. I look forward to the rest of the trilogy as now I feel connected with the characters and can’t wait to see the rest of their story unravel.
