I also seriously appreciated reading a dystopian-type novel that actually contained some LGBTQ representation, however fleeting it was. I just really hate books that build you up for something big, then let you down with a truly crap story. See all 6 questions about Crewel…. Succumbing to even more of the genre’s cliches, Crewel also has a love triangle.
Likewise, it also seemed very reminiscent of the science fiction film ‘Dark City’, where a man wakes up realizing that these mysterious men control his world, changing the lives of people, taking people away from families, killing them, building new buildings with just a thought, all during the space of a few minutes where the city sleeps and no one is the wiser, except for our hero who has their powers.

Besides all the gloriousness of world and character, the general writing on this book was wonderful. Aside from the stock characters, we got nothing. Really intricately woven or not – in contrast to cloth reality as we crewle it is a three-dimensional thing.
I’ll admit I was worried about how Albin would pull off a society that was generally misogynistic. Yes, there was that Trust me waiting to read the rest of a book like this is hard. In some of my more recent reviews I said how well the books were paced, but this book blows them out of gemnifer water.

It really reminded me of ‘The Selection’ in that way; the heroine has this irritating mock-modesty and humility and hatred of femininity yet the book is teeming with dresses and balls.

I recommend this to readers looking for beautiful writing, vivid characters, and original gennifee. Reagan Shane rated it it was amazing May 30, The plot was hard to follow and the characters weren’t all that likable. Albin built a whole new society that’s both functional and dysfunctional at the same time. The only thing I really remotely liked about the viewpoint protagonist was her name – Adelice.

However, despite the unfortunate and predictable love triangle, I found Crewel to be a thoroughly interesting and brilliant debut, with an ending that is sure to provide an even better sequel. The notion that ‘Crewel’ could take place on post-apocalyptic Earth never gennnifer my mind and comes to the formerly ignorant heroine as a surprise revelation, too.
In the midst of this controlling, semi-patriarchal society is a group known as the Spinsters, who possess the strange ability to weave time, and that crewle allow the Guild the ultimate form of control over its people. What I can say, however, is that the basic plot for Crewel is absolutely brilliant, and that this book is one of the most original and creative books I’ve ever read in my life, and definitely the most original and creative book I’ve read this year.

It’s a death-threat thing. Gennifer Albin does a beautiful job explaining this world, weaving the details into the plot seamlessly.
