Good story. Has tones of a more adult version of Harry Potter. Nice consideration of science and magic as linked. Characters could have been a bit more developed. Worth the read. Looking forward to the sequel later this year.

Oh God, I have so many conflicting thoughts and mixed feeling that I don't know where to begin with this one.

Let's start with the characters. I liked some of them and hated others but that's normal, right? You can't love everyone. What I didn't like was that there's literally no character development, at all. They begin hating each other and thinking they are the best and it stays that way.

The plot, was there any plot really? There are six kids who were picked to be part of this secret or not so secret Society but only five will succeed while one is eliminated and that's it, that's your plot.

When they said it was kind of a game my immediate thought was "The Hunger Games!". I was expecting mind-blowing games, brutal physical activity tests, plot twists and betrayals in every chapter, but guess what? There was nothing like that. What I got instead is a magical library where they spent most of the book studying ( yuhuu so fun!) and making a lot of mindf*cking theories about time, space, gravity, dreams, you name it!

I felt like I was watching a National Geographic documentary in the background because I was reading the words but not processing the meaning.

All this was with an agonizingly slow pace, I should've been done with the book a while now but I couldn't bring myself read for long periods of time, I had to take breaks evey few chapter because honestly, the theories parts were boring af.

The author presented so many ideas that I got lost. If she'd picked only one and worked with it from begging to end it would've been so much better.

Another thing that bothered me was the multiple plot holes, specially the time holes. In one chapter they were celebrating Christmas ( kind of) and in the next it's early spring.

And then there's this almighty Society. What is it? How did it start? What does it stand to gain from all this?! The Society is a big question mark without answer.

All that being told, it wasn't all bad. The first few parts ( the first four mainly) were really exciting and I couldn't wait to see what happened next. The world building and magic system were well done in my opinion because usually I don't like urban fantasy (there's just something wrong about technology and magic coexisting in the same world) but surprisingly I didn't mind it in here, in fact, I rather enjoyed the change( then again, maybe it's because there was no contact with the outside world because they spent all their time in the damned library) and I found the magic system interesting and among all the disastrous theories, it kept me on my toes and I just wanted to see where all this was headed even if it made no sense.

It's been so long since I struggle to rate a book properly because seriously, what did I just read? But it made me want to start the next book immediately ( sadly, it's not out yet) and that's the why of the high rating ( yes, I consider that high). ( )

Not what I expected at all. If I had gone into it knowing a little more of what to expect, I think I would have enjoyed it more. However, I needed and wanted to finish it and find out what happens, and I will be getting the next 2 books when they are released. ( )

The Atlas Six is definitely one of my new favorite books of the year so far. It's the story of six candidates chosen to complete for five spots at the mythical Library of Alexandria, not destroyed as rumored, simply relocated itself in a hidden destination because The Society deemed the information to valuable for non-magical humans. Those with magic are known as medians and magic is a known element in this world. This book is a good adult version for those who enjoyed the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling or The Magician series by Lev Grossman. There are definitely some adult themes in the book but nothing very graphic in my opinion. I would say definitely YA/ New Adult to Adults who enjoy fantasy. The world building was interesting and the magic system was quite unique and the characters had an interesting dynamic through the relationships that developed. It definitely left on a huge cliffhanger so I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the series! ( )
