You know when you read a popular book and you think "huh?!"
This.
For what is meant to be Adult SciFi/Fantasy, a large proportion of the book is based around the MCs in school. But then even when they are adults, their characters and dialogue never matures. So you end up with this weird YA vibe, but with occasional course language and a sex scene that just comes out of nowhere.
All of the characters are completely annoying and horrible, save for perhaps the AI, and are just caricatures of stereotypes. The amount of cruelty and bullying violence described was completely unrealistic and a poorly written attempt at character development.
I can't possibly explain all the things wrong with this novel, it is just a massive MESS. I absolutely forced myself to finish it purely because it was a group read with my book club, but otherwise I would have put it down and regretted that purchase by about 15%.
The only reason this gets a second star is because of the occasional Pratchet-esque humour which was the only thing I liked about this book.
Charlie Jane Anders, you are just not for me.

Utterly different from the many other books that I have read during the past few years, All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders is a completely original young adult read that magically combines science fiction and fantasy. When I dived into the book, it was without much expectation. The odds were heavily stacked against the book - author Charlie Jane Anders was new to me, I’m not a big fan of science fiction, and on top of that, the magical realm of fantasy holds little promise to me.

Yet when I dig deeper into the stories of Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead, I was irresistibly drawn to them. It is difficult to imagine people like them coming together. As a matter of fact, they are poles apart, though they are both gifted. Patricia is a witch, can talk with a bird while Laurence is quite the opposite. He has an extraordinary skill which enables him to make a working time machine. Some paths are destined to intertwine, as Patricia and Laurence eventually find out.

All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders is not an extraordinary story with an out-of-this-world plot. It is a story about relationship, love and life. In more ways than one would imagine, the characters are quite affable, and the author has conceived their stories in such a way that you will find it difficult to forget them. Their stories, and the pivotal thread of the novel, will pull you along as you are compellingly driven forward on a journey that not only will petrify and break your heart, but also brings much delight and happiness.

The 2nd half of the book just didn't carry as much finesse as the first, with a rushed ending and the deus ex machina solution i just feel a little bit short changed from the strong start.

Nonetheless i definitely enjoyed her style of storytelling and look forward to her next work.

Jarring. Chaotic. Nonsensical, except for the eco-disaster theme. True evidence that one can write and sell anything. At least it was well edited.
