The Diviners

The Diviners - Libba Bray The Diviners is a hefty (nearly 600 page) historical suspense story featuring a large cast of characters, a great deal of historical detail, and that tricky "intersecting lives" kind of plot structure, in which a bunch of different storylines slowly merge into one.The fact that The Diviners includes so many points of view and so much historical detail does mean that the book's plot moves at a fairly deliberate pace -- it takes some time and patience on the part of the reader before all the various strands of the plot begin to weave together. For this reason, I think the book is probably a good fit for older teens and adult readers of YA. Yes, this book will take up a big chunk of your time, but it is time well spent!Check out the full review on my blog and find other great YA to read and win!
