I listened to the audio book for this as well as the other 2 books in the trilogy, and just like before, the narration of this book was absolutely stunning. I highly recommend this book, but especially the audio book of this book to absolutely everyone. I give the trilogy as a whole 5 stars! I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. I really liked how this story tied everything up. It wasn't all happy endings, but it was a very nice wrap up. I actually think that it may have even been left where there could be a possibility of more in the future, but it is also written in a way where it will be perfectly fine ending where it ended. I would love to know if Libba Bray has considered expanding the series with Gemma Doyle. ( )

With a sigh, I resign myself to combing through it page by page, though 502 pages is so many to wade through, and I curse authors who write such lengthy books when a few neat pages of prose would do.

-- Roughly halfway through a nearly 1000 page book


[b:The Sweet Far Thing|127459|The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle, #3)|Libba Bray|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1358704741l/127459._SY75_.jpg|3072872] is a doorstopper conclusion to a series, which for the most part does everything the previous books does only more so. We do finally get to a conclusion, but really, the vast majority of the book I probably could have done without.

Things that annoyed me about this book:

- Gemma

The entire book revolves around the time where she will make her 'debut' into society and become a woman. She has the magic of the realms at her disposal--never really explained what that actually mains. And yet she spends the entire book mind controlling her family and others around her and wining about how hard it is to actually make a descision and stick with it.

IT IS A TEDIOUS SORT OF DAY AT SPENCE. WE SPEND THE whole of our French lesson conjugating verbs. Frankly, I do not care whether it is I have dined on snails or I shall dine on snails, as I do not intend ever to allow a snail past my lips and so the entire lesson is moot.

I mean. It's funny, but it's just a very different sort of scale.

- Ann

I get where the whole lack of belief in herself comes from, but oh does it grow grating after a while.


“I’m sorry, Gemma.” She tries to touch me but I shrink away. “If I leave now, I can remember that day as it was. I can always believe that I could have done it. But if I take that chance—if I go to them as myself and fail…I couldn’t bear it.”


Not to mention (too late) that after the fiasco of using magic to pretend to be someone she's not last book backfires... she does it again? Oy.

- Felicity

So it turns out that she's actually either a lesbian or bi and had a relationship with Pippa before she died? But this is only mentioned in the last part of the last book? I think I actually like her the most of the main trio, but she's still very much a young adult/teenage girl.

Things that I actually liked:

Kartik's story line and (believe it or not) even his ending (spoilers). He's stuck in a hardest place but I think makes the most about it all through the book. So it goes.

Overall, not my favorite book series and this one in particular could have been shorter. But it's still not a terrible reading.

Onward!

This book probably receives something more like a 4.25-4.5 from me. The beginning of it was a little slow and that, combined with moving, created a little longer of a reading than I had planned on. The last 1/3 of the book flew by though and I absolutely couldn't put it down and was completely entranced by the characters, plot, and world. I really didn't want the book to end the way that it did, but I understand the reasons why. I loved the way in which all the characters grew and even some of the ones I found a little more annoying were redeemed overall. I definitely saw the ending with Pippa coming, but there definitely a few twists with other characters that I didn't see coming at all.

There were still a few parts throughout the book that I thought could have used a little more detail, description, or explaining as with the other books in this trilogy, but overall, I love the world Libba Bray has created and wish I could know more about what happens to all these characters after the book ended even though it was wrapped up nicely for the characters next stage of their lives.

Oooh, what a conclusion to the Gemma Doyle trilogy! Why is the burned East Wing of Spence Academy being rebuilt? Why does Pippa seem so different when the girls visit her in the Realms? Why are the Order and the Rakshana fighting for control? ( )

A bittersweet, but satisfying end to the trilogy.

There is a strong parallel between drugs/drug abuse and the magic that Gemma possesses. There are other themes explored, like self empowerment and self determination. Overall, it shows that you should question things and not just blindly follow because that's how it's always been done. ( )
