um hello where is this book??????????
(y'all i posted this in january, i know when the book is coming out now lol)
The saga is over!
This whole series is very good – 5 stars all the way and highly recommended to fans of YA Dystopian fiction. Book 2 (Thunderhead) is one of my favorite books of the last few years. So, I was very excited to get this ARC from Simon and Schuster to get a chance to finish this tell a bit ahead of time. I am pleased to get this review out on the eve of the book’s release and I hope it gets fans of the series excited to finish the journey.
I do have to say that book three was good but did not quite blow me away like the other two. While book 1 and 2 were both were easily 5 stars for me, The Toll is only 4 stars. Do not take this too hard if you have been looking forward to it - 4 stars is still very good! It is just that the first two built up so much and then hit me in the feels with such a powerful one-two punch that the third book needed to really bang the story home to get 5 stars. It ended up being a fine resolution, but had just slightly less urgency, emotion, shock, etc. etc. etc. than the first two books.
There is resolution for the characters we know. And, surprisingly enough in the last stages of this story, introduction of characters we don’t. Overall, it was a fun and interesting journey and I think in general people will be satisfied with where everyone ends up – even if it is not quite where you expected (and, for me, everything about this book ended up being totally unexpected, which is a very good thing!)
There is lots of commentary in this book on current social and political topics. Some of it is tongue in cheek, some of it is a bit more blatant. (i.e. at one point a character says something along the lines of “only idiots build walls to keep people out”) With Dystopian you expect this sort of commentary and I think throughout it has been fairly well balanced between commentary and story. But, if I had to give an opinion, the commentary was the heaviest in the third book.
Book three, as well as the whole series, has been unique and wonderful. It seems easy to get into a rut with a genre – especially the wildly popular YA Dystopia. Or, to make it so confusing that it isn’t even fun to read (I am looking at you Maze Runner series). But, nothing was wrong with this series – it was a delight and I am sad it is over. I have heard that Schusterman has some other great books out there and I will definitely be tracking them down!
I can hear Door’s lyrics playing in my head. “ This is the end my beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend”
All the good things need to end at someday. Even SPN after 15 freaking crazy ride seasons later has to end. This is the second emotional thing I had to endure. First one is saying goodbye to Winchester brothers and the second one is finishing this book, waving at those beautiful characters.
So I’m giving my full five gazillion shiny stars for the love of Scythedom, Rowan, Citra, Goddard, Anastasia, Jerico ( my favorite newcomer) and all those remarkable characters, fantastic word building, creatively visualized dystopian atmosphere, provocative political system criticism ( you may see all those reflections of The US’s political climate change which are intelligently inserted inside this book.)
I feel a little sad reading lesser parts about Rowan and Citra because they grow on me and they were easily likable characters. I feel like they were my nieces, slowly becoming mature, fighting against all those biggest challenges, obstacles and mostly defeating evil genius minds and their own securities. I wish the author may decide to write a new special sequel just for those lovely protagonists. But I found the decision not to see so much parts about them is necessary because I’m a big fan of apocalyptic stories that future of the entire world is depending only one person’s powers kind of heroism. It’s absurd, nonsense and only can be seen and turned into a box office hits at Michael Bay’s %0 rotten tomatoes pointed movies.
The ending was REMARKABLE, SO SATISFYING! I couldn’t think any better conclusion. That’s why Neal Shusterman is genius author who is always million steps ahead from the readers. You cannot walk to catch his brilliance. You have to run a marathon but it’s totally worth it!
I didn’t cry so much since Lost’s final episode ( not for missing the series, the ending was ridiculously absurd and painful, worse than GOT’s final)
I loved this series! I loved those characters! I loved every pieces of this author’s brain cells, his political ideas, his sarcastic criticism ( if he runs for presidency, I’ll definitely vote for him)
This series will be always on my mind like Georgia and they will be my all time favorite books!
