Six of Crows: Collector's Edition: Book 1
About this deal
It’s everything the genre should be. It’s creative and immersive and unique. It’s stylistically great without being overly stylized. The plotline is nearly nonstop exciting. There is a MAP.
Now that I got this off my chest I’m finally able to write the actual review and since you all know me you also know what to expect. ;-) The other three...they’re just pretty boring. Wylan is Nice but that’s not enough to make me like a character. Nina is just like “Food!!! Yum!!! Love to eat, and also be sexy!!!” And if anyone could show me actual proof Matthias has one (1) trait besides liking Nina and being strong, I’d fall out of my chair. Because I’d be surprised. And also statistically speaking I’d probably be sitting. matthias helvar. the way he has this threatening, honorable, brooding thing going on that we all love 😌 but inside is just such a cinnamon roll? i’m so in love with him i will protect him with my LIFE if need be. i loved the way he overcame his prejudice against the grisha so realistically because if there’s one thing i love to see, it’s true development like that. the growth he showed with that is everything. there were so many moments he made me mad but i got his pov because it was so understandable. he’d been raised a certain way and he couldn’t just change that in one go — as much as i’d like for him to. “yellow tulip” still has me gasping ngl i love him sm.Matthias totally not a walking stereotype yeah yeah la-di-dah. Broody type, doesn’t laugh at jokes, ken-doll hair albeit a little longer, outstandingly handsome, has abs.
What it comes down to is the fact that I rarely truly like even a single character in a book. So to like THREE!! IN ONE NOVEL! Unbelievable.Matthias is honestly my least favorite. He's dynamic enough and he's got a great character arc, but I don't feel as if he's nearly as original a character as my five. Whatever, I still like him. Edit update or whatever I watched the Netflix show I'm on episode four and oh my god it's really good. It's really really fun and I can feel my brain leaking out of my ears whenever I see Inej and Kaz interact with each other.
