The Sweet Far Thing

Whew!  I finally finished this.  I have been hauling around all 820 pages of it since Christmas.  I was so reluctant to get started because I knew once I was drawn in I would not want to stop, so I hemmed and hawed through the first 125 pages.  But this weekend I decided to commit, and sure enough I was completely useless as I finished the book.  Bray is a truly descriptive writer – hence the 800 some odd pages – and she creates a vivid world, but there is plenty of plot and romance to keep a reader interested.  I sort of wish I could have read them all back to back, and as a rule I am opposed to books that weigh over 2 pounds, it makes it hard to read in bed.  But it was a satisfying conclusion to the Great and Terrible trilogy.

  1. It was sad when the conclusion of such an amazing series came to an end. I was hooked when I first read A Great and Terrible Beauty and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the others. I must admit though, when I finished The Sweet Far Thing I was totally crushed. I guess I’m a sap for happy endings and to me that involves the two lovers ending up together in the world. I had my heart set on it from the beginning ,but I think I knew deep down how it had to end thought I didn’t want it to. So, all in all, I adored the third book in the trilogy. I just hope I can get over the ending;it really cut me deep.
