The Sweet Far Thing - Libba Bray And so ends the Gemma Doyle Trilogy... and all I can say is... wow. I truly did enjoy this series. It is one of the best series out there I have ever read. Usually I get bored with a series and I cannot finish is after the first book. But this one... just incredible! I know I will be able to read this trilogy over and over and over again. It is just THAT amazing!

The story in this book was to wrap up everything from the first two books, naturally. Bray is amazing with her story-telling skills. I love her writing style. It never ceases to amaze me with how vast her knowledge for the Victorian era is or how astounding her vocabulary is. I love reading her books because she knows what she wants to convey and how she wants to convey it as.

There are a few minor setbacks for this particular novel. Mainly with how it had a lot of unnecessary parts to it. Don't get me wrong. I love reading long books. That's not the problem here. The problem is that some things could have been kept out of the book and you would have still had the whole plot together. For example, that sub-plot with Ann. I won't say exactly what it is but those who have read this book knows what I am referring to. It was just tedious and waste of paper.

The characters weren't that bad. Although I did feel that the girls did revert back to their bratty selves like they were in the first novel but that's part of who they are, I guess. They were still lovely and you got to see some other characters that was portrayed in a negative light grow into something more. That is something I truly loved about this novel.

To wrap up, I did enjoy this book very much despite the minor things that I thought were tedious. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy is definitely worth the read. It will keep you entertained throughout the entire thing. Bray's writing makes it all the more enjoyable, in my opinion. You will not be disappointed! Go get it now!
