    Does the world deserve forgiveness Does it deserve another chance I was very conflicted as I read this The overarching emotion I felt throughout was disappointment Unlike the rest of the series, this felt like it lacked a real direction I wasn t sure what the goal was, and what had been the established goal at the end of The Burning World was pretty much entirely forgotten until the climax Conflicts were often repeated multiple times, or borrowed from previous books, and it left me feeling Does the world deserve forgiveness Does it deserve another chance I was very conflicted as I read this The overarching emotion I felt throughout was disappointment Unlike the rest of the series, this felt like it lacked a real direction I wasn t sure what the goal was, and what had been the established goal at the end of The Burning World was pretty much entirely forgotten until the climax Conflicts were often repeated multiple times, or borrowed from previous books, and it left me feeling drained and frankly a little pissed off A lot of time was spent flipping through perspectives and I felt like I didn t have enough time to feel much of anything for most of them The scope of this was too big sometimes and the plot was left drowning in it.We all decide the shape of the world, the sum of all minds together Change has to be chosen.But luckily, Marion is an amazing writer, and his way with words and imagery pretty much saved this R completed his ongoing character arc all for the better and the conclusion was probably the most emotionally heart wrenching, yet also heart warming, endings to any series I ve ever read While I flip flopped between considering DNFing it or framing it on my wall, I think that ultimately, this was a fantastic book that perhaps I will appreciateon a second read through And, of course, the themes are so profound and thought provoking Even the bad guys sometimes manage to pull you in Overall, I am so glad I read this and eventhan that, I m so glad Isaac finally got to release this book into the world, and I mthan excited to see what strange paths he follows next.Every choice has a price We all owe a debt to this world for the things we take from it, right or wrong, cruel or kind But these laws are soft, these laws are alive, and sometimes a debt is forgiven

    My enjoyment of this book may have been lessened because I read The Burning World so long ago, and this is basically part 2 of that story That said, it kinda felt like I jumped in the middle of a narrative, but that s expected It just was hard to do I recommend reading them back to back, definitely Some of the concepts in this were a little too out there for what I usually go for, and one scene in particular was a little silly, but overall it acts as a solid conclusion to the series Jus My enjoyment of this book may have been lessened because I read The Burning World so long ago, and this is basically part 2 of that story That said, it kinda felt like I jumped in the middle of a narrative, but that s expected It just was hard to do I recommend reading them back to back, definitely Some of the concepts in this were a little too out there for what I usually go for, and one scene in particular was a little silly, but overall it acts as a solid conclusion to the series Just don t go in expecting a big name reveal for R I may have to reread The Burning World and The Living one day to truly appreciate them together 4 5 Stars

We are ten thousand generations of humans and millionsof simpler things, a vast history of lives and experiences condensed like an ocean of oil, growing deeper andrefined with each new moment of beauty We want to ignite We want to be heat and light After billions of years, we are running out of patience What we had before is what burned the world down I m ready for a whole new everything Chairs on the ceiling, Tomsen adds An otter for president Gebre looks at us for a moment, then tosses up his hands and turns back to his husband Well Okay Gael erupts with laughter You re out of touch with the youth, old man I might even agree with them, Gebre says with a shrug, but they re hardly representative of the general population We might be someday, Julie says Maybe sooner than you think How do we make a better world without giving up a single piece of the old one We don t We can t That s a fucking stupid question No way around it, zombies are magic Warm Bodies is a personal favorite of mine if not in the top ten, then definitely the top twenty Hey, the likes of Margaret Atwood and Octavia Butler stiff competition Until I met R and Julie, never did I imagine that a book about the undead could be so beautiful and poetic Romantic, even, and in a revolutionary, universal heartbeat kind of way The Burning World proved a letdown albeit a teeny tiny one , as Marion traded some of the ardor for action adventure it felt almost like an intermission between theimportant stuff In all fairness, bridging the gap between the beginning and end of a trilogy is HARD, and the second book in the series is still filled with its share of beautiful, transformative moments I challenge you to find atragically exquisite scene than when Nora s patient, Mrs A, pulls herself from the pit of the plague, only to succumb to her injuries after enjoying a few brief moments of her newfound humanity I m not gonna lie I was nervous as heck to read The Living especially right after the dumpster fire that was Fury, the series conclusion to another one of my faves, Menagerie Thankfully, The Living is a harmonious marriage of the previous two books it s got the race against time action adventure chops of The Burning World, with all of the humor, heart, and humanity that made me fall head over heels for Warm Bodies.The Living picks up immediately after the events of The Burning World, as R., Julie, Nora, Marcus, and Huntress Tomsen flee an imploding NYC What ensues is a road trip across the United States including an especially precarious and trippy as in LSD journey through the Midwaste as they try to beat Axiom to Post save their kids from being assimilated into Axiom s military industrial complex continue to spread the Gleam to the Dead and Nearly Living and confront their pasts For Julie, this means finding her Nearly Living mother before she dies a second time for Nora, it means confronting and perhaps forgiving memories she s tried long and hard to repress and for R., it involves a trip to the basement, and bringing his crimes against humanity as both the head of the Burners and the heir to the Atvist megacorp to light And they re all chasing Tomsen s white whale, BABL, hoping to bring it crashing down, thus opening the lines of communication to humanity One of the delights of The Living is watching R grow and evolve and with it, his relationship with Julie There s this wonderful scene where Julie confesses that what first drew her to R was his distinct lack of a background or baggage He was a blank canvas on which she could project whatever she needed Slowly, though, he has become full fledged person imperfections and all R didn t have much of a choice when he devoured Perry he was just following the plague s biological imperative But the towns that were consumed at his behest as a Burner, and the humans devoured by the machine that was Axiom Those were R s doing How could that young man grow into the monosyllabic zombie that Julie fell in love with How can she reconcile the man she loves with the person he once was How can he We also learnabout the nature of the plague in general terms, it s an allegory for the times we live in now, and one that s perhapsapt today than when the series began The plague is forced unity and conformity it is greed and pessimism It is Axiom , Blackwater, Purdue Pharma Bethany Christian Services, CoreCivic, Wells Fargo objectifying, tabulating, assimilating, corporatizing, mechanizing, consuming, regurgitating, and reassembling humans, nonhumans, and the natural world It is apathy and stagnation bigotry and tyranny The only way through it Love and otter presidents.The loveliest part of The Living, far and away, is the Library a subconscious, supernatural, subatomic collective consciousness A vast, limitless record of everyone and everything that ever has been, and ever will be Though it has a longstanding policy of steering clear of human affairs, the state of the world has become such that the Library can no longer bear silent witness This burning world, so desolate yet still so full of potential, needs a nudge A bit of wisdom A tiny miracle And the so Library whispers, cajoles, and calls out to our protagonists Well, the older ones the younger ones, Joan and Alex and Sprout and Addis they can flit in and out of the stacks at will They are able to sip and guzzle from the Library s incomprehensible stores of knowledge whenever they like Perhaps they can even use this wisdom to bend the laws of reality They are the next generation our future.I hope they don t mind, but I m going to pocket a small piece of the Library, and slip it into my own weird, godless magpie version of religion, not quite a There it will rest on the shelves alongside Octavia E Butlers s Parables duology Philip Pullman s His Dark Materials Carl Sagan s starstuff Aaron Freeman s essay, You want a physicist to speak at your funeral and pieces of Light from Other Stars and The Psychology of Time Travel, by Erika Swyler and Kate Mascarenhas, respectively, and among other things It s strange and perhaps a bit confusing, but also as magnificent as all get out Just roll with it and you ll have an extraordinary time, I promise.Also awesome and compelling and worth a mention Nora s reunion with Addis Nora Marcus Tomsen vs BABL The Suggestible Universe Paul Bark sounds an awful lot like Paul Blart Gael Gebre random philosophical debates with strangers in dive bars and the feeling you get when a ghost smiles at you Gleam on
