My Thoughts

 

The opening line at the top is taken from a chat with Rick Yancey pertaining to the twist at the end of The Infinite Sea.  For me personally, I was just confused at the end of that book.   Sometimes, Yancey just went on and on about something, which in turn, just made me lose sight of what he's actually trying to say.  

 

Overall this series is not going to go down as one of my favorites…I did like it…just not that much.  Like it was almost too complex for me.  While I mostly believe the ending went just as it should, it could have been a little less bleak and hopeless.

 

I'm satisfied with my choice to listen to this 3rd book, as I also did with the 2nd book.  I believe it makes the constant switch from one character to another a little more seamless than actually reading it.
