Description

The highly anticipated standalone from the award-winning, New York Times best-selling author of the Graceling Realm series - a kaleidoscopic novel about grief, adventure, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.

Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia - an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions.

Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash - a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family's island mansion called Tu Reviens.

Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." With nothing but a trunkful of umbrella parts to her name, Jane ventures out to the Thrash estate. Then her story takes a turn, or, rather, five turns. What Jane doesn't know is that Tu Reviens will offer her choices that can ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But at Tu Reviens, every choice comes with a reward, or a price.

Listen to Jane, Unlimited and remember why the New York Times has raved, "Some authors can tell a good story; some can write well. Cashore is one of the rare novelists who do both."

never captivated me

I loved cashore's previous trilogy but I found this a little hard to get into. the five different narratives were a bit repetitive and, although interesting and unique on their own, my attention wasn't focused on the book enough. I struggle to finish this book when I normally would want to devour it. I will still buy any book that Kristin cashore writes in the future however. Maybe you would like this more than me. ivy, jasper and Ravi were the best. and umbrellas are something new for sure.

excellent

this book was delightful. I really enjoyed the different tracks that takes depending on Jane's decisions. I'm not sure which one was my favorite, I'll have to listen to it again and will do so happily.

Like, not love

I liked this book but didn’t love it. I’d describe it as unique, interesting, quirky, experimental—not moving, heartbreaking, fascinating, or immersive, which are all words I’d use for Cashore’s Fire and Bitterblue. To be honest I would never have guessed the author of this book had also written the Graceling trilogy, if her name wasn’t on the book; it has SUCH a different voice and structure.

I assume Cashore is trying something new here, and I liked it okay. It won’t be joining Fire and Bitterblue on my list of perennial re-reads, because it did have some glaring issues (a couple times it dragged pretty badly, and more than a couple times it fell into kitsch or cliche). But I’m still giving it 4 stars overall because even with those issues, there’s something about it that I can’t quite get out of my mind. I finished it days ago and I’m still thinking about Jane’s umbrellas, and frog rain, and Jasper the Bassett hound, and the rest. From a writing perspective, it’s an imperfect but impressive feat, wildly creative and intricately knit together. I doubt I’ll re-read it for pleasure, but I will still be thinking about Jane, Unlimited for a long time to come.

Gave me a headache

Struggled to finish. Sorry I paid money for it. Found the narrator annoying. If I ever hear the words Aunt Magnolia in that time again, it will be too soon.

Not what I thought...

I honestly couldn't get my head around this book. Even when all I was doing was listening, I couldn't focus and clearly understand what was happening. It dragged...which made it hard for me to get through and finish.

Not what I was hoping for

The story was slow and then exceedingly strange with a disjointed and off-putting narrative line, not at all the Calibre of Cashore's Graceling trilogy. On top of that, I found the narrator's voice to be grating. The way she swallowed her R's every single time kept pulling me out of the flow, and she is not very facike with different voices for different characters.

Pay attention! Intrigue and twists

Read the synopsis! I didn’t and about 1/5th through the book I (1) thought the book was over and (2) couldn’t figure out why parts were repeating themselves. After I figured it out, the book is super intriguing how the multiple mysteries unfold and the author maintains a continuous thread while exploring several realities. Nothing like the other series if that is what you’re looking for. Oddly placed f-bombs if you’re concerned about language. 8th grade and above would be my guesstimate.

Don't waste your time!

Book started off great. I noticed several grammatical errors, but thought they were just mistakes; as most books have some. However, the author kept changing tense and utilizing the same words over and over AND over again! Poor description. That is just the beginning of the terribleness related to this book. The story line is hard to follow with the many plots. The idea of the book was great, but all the twists and turns could have really been better utilized in a book series rather then edited poorly in one book.

Get the hard copy

I'm listening to this on Audible and I started it without knowing anything about it. This book is a hot confusing awful mess when approached this way. I stopped listening because there is no indication on the recording that there are different sections, which are different choices/stories, so my experience of the book is that it's repetitive and utterly chaotic. I may try the hard copy but I give up on the Audible recording. It's making me hate this book.

very happy I picked this one!

I loved all the separate stories and that they all tired together. All the characters were very strong and interesting. Spoilers Jane and Ivy finally!!!! I was very happy that Jasper/Steen stayed with Jane in the end and in his world where he can talk to her. Overall a great story!
