    Finally after so many false starts and being distracted by other books I have finished Bone Song it only took me dragging it to China and back to achieve that Anyway how was the book well I will admit I wasn t sure what I was going to be greeted by since I have only read John Meaney s science fiction work in the past however it did t take me ...

    If I could say one thing about Bone Song, it is certainly unique I like that Mr Meaney wrote a book that was entirely out of his imagination I did see shades of Blade Runner and noir cyperpunk aspects in his story, but he didn t play it safe or familiar in any other way.The idea of bones having power to run cities, and for necromancers to kill gifted people so they could harness the power of their bones, was something I have not encountered in my reading It was pretty gruesome, at times, a If I could say one thing about Bone Song, it is certainly unique I like that Mr Meaney wrote a book that was entirely out of his imagination I did see shades of Blade Runner and noir cyperpunk aspects in his story, but he didn t play it safe or familiar in any other way.The idea of bones having power to run cities, and for necromancers to kill gifted people so they could harness the power of their bones, was something I have not encountered in my reading It was pretty gruesome, at times, although this book is far from gory.The worldbuilding in this story was very solid I do admit, I was totally scratching my head at first Mr Meaney builds his world from the ground up, even using a very different calender and number of days system that I have ever encountered I am pretty sure that Quintember 37, 6066 is a date I will never see in real life And last I checked, there are not twenty five hours in a day I loved the infusion...

    Bone song is filed under urban fantasy , but I d put it under gothic dieselpunk It takes place in a couple of different urban environs, both of which are left over by some long past undescribed civilization who s technology has been mostly forgotten What does still work in this world is thaumaturgical based magic death is not so much a final destination as a state of being with different shades, including zombies which function as living humans but need regular infusions of thaumaturgi Bone song is filed under urban...

    I tried, I feel I really did But I got to Chapter 8 page 85 and could go no further This is an ambitious book, but the author misplaced those ambitions, putting all his toys in his world building toybox without leaving anything for development and execution And that s my main issue with the book, the world building Yes, it s detailed However, it s never fully explained Now, I admit, I hate info dumps and it s a poor writer who uses them to explain how his or her world works But I also h I tried, I feel I really did But I got to Chapter 8 page 85 and could go no further This is an ambitious book, but the author misplaced those ambitions, putting all his toys in his world building toybox without leaving anything for development and execution And that s my main issue with the book, the world building Yes, it s detailed However, it s never fully explained Now, I admit, I hate info dumps and it s a p...

    Ooof but this was a struggle I don t think I ve ever been so quickly disappointed with a book I really, really wanted to like And I m not even a fan of urban fantasy But Bone Song is also a noir thriller, and I m a sucker for those, plus I d heard the world building was amazing, so I threw myself at the book with abandonand ended up frequently throwing the book at things wall, floor, bed, etc Let me count the waysThe AwesomeThe world building Seriously, I love the concept of a pers Ooof but this was a struggle I don t think I ve ever been so quickly disappointed with a book I really, really wanted to like And I m not even a fan of urban fantasy But Bone Song is also a noir thriller, and I m a sucker for those, plus I ...

    2.5, maybe I haven t been so disappointed in a book since I don t know when, chiefly because it has such incredible worldbuilding and because the first half of the book absolutely blew me away I was completely enmeshed in the world and the characters and couldn t wait to get back to it each time I put it down About halfway through, though, it seemed to have a schizophrenic breakdown The previously tight and compelling POVs split between two main characters mushroomed into multiple, shallow 2.5, maybe I haven t been so disappointed in a book since I don t know when, chiefly because it has such incredible worldbuilding and because the first half of the book absolutely blew me away I was completely enmeshed in the world and the characters and couldn t wait to get back to it each time I put it down About halfway through, though, it seemed to have a schizophrenic breakdown The previously tight and compelling POVs split between two main characters mushroomed into multiple, shallow head hopping POVs which seriously diluted the flow of the story and the characterizations That would have been bearable because the worldbuilding remained amazing and compelling, the plotting intricate , but then the characteriz...

    Read this a while ago Three, but barely It s like eating something and you don t know if you like it or not and it smells kinda funny so you make someone else try it and then they smack you.Best part is the worldbuilding Fantastic Dialogue is pretty good Biggest problem is that I failed to give much of...

    A highly original and imaginative mystery set in an alternate world where technology is powered by the bones of the dead and the deceased are enslaved Very entertaining, despite various weak points in plot, characterization, and pacing.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I m tempted to just use the word shit to sum this book up, since that is the most common phrase of dialogue Mr Meaney uses when his characters can t think of anythingmeaningful to say which is often.Quite frankly, this is the worst written book I ve ever read The problem is, where to start I was given this as a gift, and felt obliged to read it out of courtesy It started badly, and by the end it becamea mission to grind it out until the bitter end, determined not to be beaten I m tempted to just use the word shit to sum this book up, since that is the most common phrase of dialogue Mr Meaney uses when his characters can t think of anythingmeaningful to say which is often.Quite frankly, this is the worst written book I ve ever read The problem is, where to start I was given this as a gift, and felt obliged to read it out of courtesy It started badly, and by the end it becamea mission to grind it out until t...
