¼ Read Ú The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray Ú Okay, I m going to start off with a warning I will be talking in detail about how this book made me feel and if you haven t read it yet it is possible that my feelings will give away a crucial plot point With that all I can say is I feel raw Absolutely raw I couldn t breathe And I cried A lot of tears were shed The ending is by far one of the most brilliant, brave things I have EVER read, that does not mean that it wasn t absolutely horrible to read And knowing that it was necessary, that it had to happen, that it s the perfect ending does not really comfort me but I ll take what I can The emotion that Libba Bray churned up in me was astounding From absolute highs, to absolute lows and I do mean absolute , I loved riding the roller coaster of it all My second favorite series ever read it Love it Cry along with me.
Thankfully, this is over I thought I would never get through this last installment of Gemma Doyle trilogy Why, oh why does this book have to be so long Take out 300 400 pages of unnecessary secondary characters and going nowhere plot lines, its 5 epilogues, and The Sweet Far Thing would be a reasonably decent book I suppose But alas, Bray chooses to ruin her own rather original series with this endless and bizarre last installment.
I ve read quite a few reviews and know how many people are disappointed with the ending I don t really mind where all the characters end up in this story, but I rather mind how and why they get there Gemma s books have never been about romance for me The underlying idea of these It Has Been A Year Of Change Since Gemma Doyle Arrived At The Foreboding Spence Academy Her Mother Murdered, Her Father A Laudanum Addict, Gemma Has Relied On An Unsuspected Strength And Has Discovered An Ability To Travel To An Enchanted World Called The Realms, Where Dark Magic Runs Wild Despite Certain Peril, Gemma Has Bound The Magic To Herself And Forged Unlikely New Alliances Now, As Gemma Approaches Her London Debut, The Time Has Come To Test These Bonds The Order The Mysterious Group Her Mother Was Once Part Of Is Grappling For Control Of The Realms, As Is The Rakshana Spence S Burned East Wing Is Being Rebuilt, But Why Now Gemma And Her Friends See Pippa, But She Is Not The Same And Their Friendship Faces Its Gravest Trial As Gemma Must Decide Once And For All What Role She Is Meant For This was by far my favorite in the series, and I think a lot of it had to do with what Libba Bray was willing to have happen to her characters The others have had their dark moments, but this was definitely the darkest of the lot Makes sense, since it is the conclusion of a trilogy, and so there s got to be pretty big events to keep the story going.
It does take a while for the story to pick up, like in the others Oh, and there s a veritable ton of Victorian society happenings that some readers might get a little tired of Gemma also spends a lot of time debating about the decision of what to do with the magic, which might also bore a lot of readers I actually really loved how much effort Bray put into fleshing out the Victorian culture for her readers, and didn t mind Gemma s brooding Hey, if I were in her position, I d totally be brooding, too So, while the first ha Series review video good Nay.
The bad Wayyy too long I was bored The thing wasn t even resolved they won a battle but not the war The worst bleeping love triangle I ve ever read.
The problematic Fat shaming Horrible attitudes toward disability Sexual orientation used as a plot twist Issues of non consent were never addressed Sexual abuse backstory to excuse a character s meanness.
WrensReads Review This was a reread of a reread of a reread et cetera literally can t tell you how many times I have put myself through this book But I knew I needed to read this book again to have it fresh in my mind in order to review it correctly When asking my sister who introduced this series to me in grade school how I should review this book, she stated that I should just use crying gifs so here are a few of those Libba Bray does not hold back when it comes to your heart Yes, this book is a really, really long one, but Bray likes her descriptions and her character development There are so many things going on in this book that are just on the side, but are so important to the characters and why they make the decisions that they make.
I will let you know that some people believe there is some fat shaming in this, and I can see where they are coming fr Here s what I expected from this book that it would maintain the part snarky, part serious, part romantic tone of the first two books that the characters would grow a bit and the relationships would be as fraught as ever that there would be some good old fashioned suspense leading up to the conclusion of the trilogy If any of those elements were present in this book, they got lost under pages and pages of sub par writing I don t come to books like this for Great Literature, but the others were enjoyable even when I rolled my eyes I was too busy slogging through to roll my eyes Ultimately, I didn t really care what happened to any of the characters, and the supposed to be heart wrenching twist towards the end did not wrench my heart but I did manag Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray contains spoilers I finished the final installment of the Gemma Doyle trilogy last night It took me over two weeks to finish and I came very close to throwing the damn book across the room with only 70 pages to go I have to say that I am very upset that Kartik died VERY The tension, and affection between Kartik and Gemma was what kept me reading I was constantly waiting for her to see his red bandanna or meet him in the boathouse I will admit that the book ended very well but I was still very angry.
I have never cried while reading before, and I have told my friends that I don t understand why people do I cry in all movies but with a book, you control the tempo You can stop whenever you please Simply close the book and try again later, that is how I roll However, I shed a few tears at the end of Sweet Far Thing When Ka
I am utterly distraught by this book My first hour free of it s torture I was a ball of fury Nothing made sense, the writing was crappy, and I had so many questions My poor husband didn t want to come near me and I didn t want to talk to anyone.
I had such high hopes for this book Kartik and Gemma would finally find a way to be together, the magic of the realms would be figured out and dealt with, and Felicity and Ann would finally become real friends of Gemma s or else be rid of I definitely expected a little bir maturity to be given out by those girls, at least by Gemma, because generally when a person is given a large amount of responsibility, despite their age, and consciously decides that they need to live up to it, they don t act like retarded and petty 12 year olds.
Here are just a few of my troublesWhy the crap does Kartik turn into a tree This And so ends the trilogy that began with A Great and Terrible Beauty, continued with Rebel Angels, and concludes in this final volume I liked the first one well enough because of its unique blend of a wild, magical, mythical realm barely constrained behind stiff Victorian curtains I really got into the second one as the plot became complex, Gemma came into her own powers, Felicity and Ann s stories became layered, and poor beautiful Pippa was relegated to the Realms indefinitely When I saw how thick the third one was, my eagerness ratcheted up a notch After all, I have been sitting around lately asking for longer books Suddenly, here one is.
Unfortunately, 800 pages later, the best thing about it remains the first four words, it s lovely title, taken from a poem by W.
B Yeats And it does capture the extremely bittersweet feel of the last portion of the book But somehow this installm
