As a huge huge Les Mis rables fan this book was such a relief compared to the other retellings I ve read Sky Without Stars takes the plot of Les Mis and hurls it into space Literally Weirdly enough the drastic changes in setting plot and character Sky Without Stars made to Les Mis was what made me enjoy it so much I wasn t hung up on all the inaccuracies and deviations I was just interested how the characters of ponine Cosette and Marius translated to Chatine Alouette and Marcellus and excited to find out what happened nextI definitely feel like the authors are ponine fans because Chatine was the centre of the book I definitely liked Chatine and her portrayal is so much closer to the Brick s than the musical s was Chatine is hardened and desperate for an escape from the planet of Laterre and she s so badass Chatine knows what she wants and how she s going to get it except when it comes to Marcellus which is pretty much how she is in the original book I admit her behaviour annoyed me sometimes with her not like other girls attitude and how much she hated Alouette for most of the book I was shocked when Chatine called Alouette a bimbo because uh COME ON I don t think even book ponine was that hateful towards Cosette And I wish that Chatine s internalized misogyny was addressed With Marcellus I was really interested in how his storyline was based on his relationship with his grandfather which is fairly accurate to the book Marius finds out secrets about his father and splits with Gillenormand because of political differences which is or less what happens with Marcellus and General Bonnefa on I m not sure how I feel about Marcellus s characterization I think if I wasn t comparing him to Marius I would have enjoyed Marcellus s character a lot Marcellus was so well developed and I really liked himAlouette was actually my favourite which makes sense because I adore Cosette Alouette was inuisitive and intelligent and confident in herself which is basically everything I love in a good Cosette characterization I also loved her father a lot and how the whole story of Les Mis rables was incorporated into this book because so many retellings focused on 1832 era characters tend to leave out Fantine Valjean and Javert Alouette and Hugo s relationship was precious and endearing but Alouette is definitely struggling for independence and answers And the authors kept Cosette s nickname as Little Lark which made me so happy It really shows attention to detail to the original book Both Alouette and Chatine s characters didn t change much from the original Brick which I really loved Hugo s women are generally so fully fleshed out autonomous characters that there doesn t need to be a lot of modernizingOne of the new additions to the story of Les Mis was the Vangarde I suppose in some ways it could be compared to Les Amis de l ABC but I didn t see it the Vangarde is an entirely new identity It was fascinating to have something new to figure out especially since a lot of the plot twists were lost on me because I know the original book so well However I really wanted to see Les Amis de l ABC I hope they ll make an appearance in the next book because they re some of my favourite characters I would absolutely love for them to be women and this book has such potential to put Les Amis in as an all girl revolutionary team I was really glad for some of the side characters Azelle Chatine s sister stands in for Azelma who is cut from a lot of adaptations Roche was so precious I loved him so much and I m happy that Chatine will get to know him in the seuelAs far as the worldbuilding went it was fairly typical for YA sci fi lots of capitalized words to indicate significance for instance Much of the book mixed in a lot of gratuitous French with the English or English words that sounded like French Honestly I thought a lot of it was unnecessary substituting m tr for meter or stupide for stupid It threw me off a bit and sometimes came off as uite awkward especially when there were words that could have been French ified like Citizen Rosseau could have been Citoyen Rosseau and gotten the point across just the same I believe there are some translations that leave instances of citoyen untranslated especially when Enjolras goes off about how his mother is the Republic etc I appreciated all the references to both the book and the musical an inn called the Jondrette and little nudges like calling Mme Renard the master of the house I m not usually fond of musical references but these ones were generally unobtrusiveAll in all I really enjoyed Sky Without Stars and can say it s my favourite retelling of Les Mis rables Which is high praise coming from me Chatine Alouette and Marcellus were a delight to read about and I m really interested in picking up the next bookThank you to the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review BLOG TWITTER INSTAGRAM

I m sitting here writing this review and I ve realised that I m so tired Or rather so tired of this boring overlong novel Stilted dialogue sluggish pacing and a painfully uninspired plot meant that often than not while reading I was musing about interesting things Like you know the different chair positionings for dental scaling Or the correct angle of probe insertion between teeth All in all Sky Without Stars was a mush of dull lifeless scenes topped with stale wafers of protagonists And goddarn the writing I wanted better from a novel that was not a debut from a novel written between two authors Oh sure there were possibly a couple of interesting descriptions but those were few and far between and all lost in the wasteful mess that was the writing What was someone waving a cattle prod at the editor the entire time to stop them from coming within five feet of the novel is that what happened There was no paraphrasing at all apart from the obvious substitutions from the thesaurus The same descriptors were used over and over and oh sols over again and the end product read less like a novel and like a college student s attempt to hit the minimum word count on their paper Sky Without Stars was six hundred pages long but next to nothing happened in the novel and that was because the same shit was being repeated six thousand times Add to that the jarring disjointed phrasing and an appalling overuse of periods and the writing ended up being so dramatic as to be comical105 note arc generously provided by jessica brody joanne rendell and the publisher simon pulse for an honest review
