Only Human (Themis Files #3) Reviews
After the cliffhanger ending of book #2, Waking Gods, I was expecting this book to pick up right after the last one ended. When I read the synopsis: "Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles," I was (completely justifiably) indignant that 10 years had apparently passed, side stepping that whole situation. Why end on a cliffhanger, then?! Luckily, that 10 year gap is given plenty of detail as the book's ...more
4.5 stars. The giant robots are back!! On sale today, May 1, 2018. Review first posted on Fantasy Literature:
Only Human wraps up Sylvain Neuvel’s excellent THEMIS FILES science fiction trilogy with some surprising plot turns. *Expect some spoilers for the first two books, Sleeping Giants and Waking Gods*
At the end of Waking Gods, the robot called Themis was suddenly transported back home to her original planet by remote command of her alien makers, accidentally carrying along four people who hap ...more
Oh my gosh I actually shed a tear when I got to the end of Only Human – possibly because of what happened in it but mostly because THIS IS THE END. What an amazing, entertaining, creative and brilliantly written trilogy.
This series has had it all, amazing characters, heart stopping action, emotional trauma, and GIANT ROBOTS. Did I mention the GIANT ROBOTS?
So Only Human completes the tale, here we find some of our friends living on an alien planet until OOPS nope they are home. But what the heck ...more
I hadn't been this excited about the last book in a series in a while and... meh.
There were some interesting parts, I was really curious to learn more about the aliens and I appreciated some of the author's thoughts but the dialogues felt too forced and really tried to be funny and sassy and it ended up a bit of a let down.
I still think it's a fun, fast-paced series but the ending didn't blow me away!
This needs to come out already.
PS. Holy fuck that cover.
Thank you to folks at Netgalley for giving me access to a review copy of this book . First I have to tell you that I love this trilogy and I was immersed in this world as soon as I read “sleeping Giants” so I came into this book with a biased opinion. I won’t give any spoilers or a complex review until the official date of this book but I can say that I was satisfied with the ending , not completely happy but satisfied. Hopefully you guys all get a chance to read this books , let me know what yo ...more
I had a revelation yesterday while reading this and toTALLY GUESSED THE VERY VERY END LOOK WHOSE CLEVER - IT ME.
I did NOT on the other hand guess the big finale. That was definitely a shocker.
Overall, this series was WONDERFUL and I can't wait to see what Neuvel puts out next. While this book didn't blow me away as much as the second did, and was much more like the first one, I really really enjoyed it. This series is just... really unique, has some amazing and powerful things to say ...more
"The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability."
Normally, I wouldn't be writing this review because most of the things I have to say about the series are usually covered in my first review, but right now I'm feeling so much emotion the only two options are to either scream for the better part of an hour or write this review, so here we are.
The only other explanation for writing the review for this book is ...more
