Burn AUTHOR Julianna Baggott eBook é Hardcover Read â reflectionslisburnltd ☆ The stunning conclusion to the trilogy that began with Pure recommended by People for those who loved The Hunger Games With his father now dead Partridge has assumed leadership of the Dome one of the last few refugesThe stunning conclusion to the trilogy that began with Pure recommended by People for those who loved The Hunger Games With his father now dead Partridge has assumed leadership of the Dome one of the last few refuges from the ravaged wastelands of the outside world At first Partridge is intent on exposing his father's lies taking down the rigid order of the Dome and uniting its citizens with the disfigured Wretches on the outside But from I originally gave this book 4 stars but after a week or so to think about it I'm downgrading to three And if I keep thinking about it I might downgrade again I am so disappointed Because this series had everything It was everything until it wasn't I'm going to hide the rest of my review because it is nothing but spoilers So seriously don't read it unless you've finished the series or have no intention to view spoiler Look the writing in this series is haunting Magic But I am struggling to process the choices of the author near the end of the book It isn't that the series doesn't end happily; I'm fine with an ending that isn't tied up in brown paper packaging with a nice bow on top But the end here feltcontrived And the moment where everything changed for me when it went from powerful and poignant to straying from the earlier narrative was when Pressia and Bradwell got married in the woods I knew right then that he was going to die Because why else would they get married? You know how in the Scream movies they tell you the first rule of being in a horror movie is not to have sex? Because the people who have sex always die? Pressia and Bradwell may never have consummated their relationship but apparently marriage was close enough And it was nothing short of weird and misplaced within the plot They went from having an overly tumultuous relationship and two seconds before they tied the knot Pressia said she was trying not to love him to marriage for no reason except that it was clear to me that Ms Baggott needed to give them some sort of happiness due to imminent death I mean I get that they are in love in a desperate situation I get the painful hope for something better and the fear of allowing someone else to break you; to give them power over you But that wedding in the middle of nowhere came OUT of nowhere And ok it was a parallelcontrast to Iralene and Partridge's wedding but it still felt out of character for both Pressia and Bradwell and unnecessary to the plot I did not appreciate the contrived attempt to play on a theme And I didn't get Bradwell fighting Hastings Why? Did he just intuit that he had to be the catalyst for revolution? Did he just want to spread his message? Was that the only way for us to understand how he had changed? I don't think so His sacrifice didn't feel necessary to me It felt like Tris trying to throw her life away unnecessarily in the first two books in the Veronica Roth series Did I completely miss something? And don't even get me started on Partridge I feel like Partridge trained for an Ironman finished the swimming and biking and then fell down on mile 25 of the marathon and just refused to get back up His character's choices were the most painful for me because I didn't feel like they were authentic choices for the person he had become If it had been made clearer that killing his father just completely shut him down I might have bought into his situational paralysis a bit But I felt like after he killed his father even Ms Baggott became hazy about who Partridge was and what his motivations were In my opinion this is the only place in the narrative where Ms Baggott truly dropped the ball; while it makes complete sense that Partridge would have had difficulties making choices that would have killed the people in the Dome his motivations up to the point he returned to the Dome were powerful enough to propel him forward in whatever he had to do to save the people outside He certainly displayed persistence and bravery if not a bit of his stupidity and naievete in escaping from the Dome in the first place I can't believe that from there and all he experienced afterward that he would just cowtow to the wills of others I can't believe that he would just take someone's orders to not visit Lyda or that he would allow himself to stay with Iralene in the end I wanted to shake him and shout Glennon Melton at him Look Partridge you can do hard things And Cygnus Please Listen I understand the need for vaguery in this series I was fine not having all the details of the Righteous Red Wave for example I understood them without having their position spelled out for me and I appreciated Baggott's trust of the reader's intelligence in that respect Arvin Weed same thing I got it I got him In fact her subtleties within this series are often magical Seriously Her writing is art But Cygnus was a major letdown for me I couldn't get over it The truth is that Baggott set them up to at least be the fallback guys a safety net And they did nothing NOTHING Almost to the point that it was laughable Perhaps that was the intent that the people inside the Dome were so insulated and naieve that even those with the best intentions had no idea how to affect real change? But seriously they might as well have been in a freaking sorority for all the good they did After I finished the book I pictured them in a meeting cave with a secret handshake and a candlelight ceremony In my opinion if you're going to introduce a secret society who is supposed to help out the protagonists in the plot they should at least ATTEMPT to help out I was also really confused by the introduction of Pressia's father After all that and he's juststill out there? Somewhere? Floating along? Another reviewer put it well when he said something along the lines of being waist deep in sub plots all of which are left unexplored at the end of the novel I mean WHAT the? Lastly I swear I have to add that I feel like this was a good opportunity for a bookseries to really explore what happens AFTER So few booksseries do that well And I don't mean to tie things up in a nice bow at all but I do mean to really highlight some interactions between those that have been in the Dome and those who have been outside Who lives who dies? What would a conversation between those folks look like? Lyda's baby could have had a little detail as well The end just fell flat for me Just totally f l a t And it was depressing for me truly I was a wreck because the pieces of this book that I just couldn't process as TRUE ruined for me the pieces that were just lovely and brilliant Because there are those moments too Plenty of them At the end of the book I wanted to be able to dwell on those discuss those And I can't I just can't even get there I have a friend who has a degree in storytelling And on Facebook recently she described another book as putting the reader at risk which she said was a reference to the author's responsibility to bring the reader to a safe not necessarily pleasant place within a story This book too puts the reader at risk in my opinion It ends with the destruction of every single character in the series in ways that feel less like emotional or plot necessities and like sucker punches I don't need for a book to wrap up happily but I DO need it to wrap up in a way that feels true to the narrative and character arcs presented to the reader and I don't think this book did either hide spoiler
