Series: The Broken Earth Trilogy #3
The last book in this trilogy was disappointing, but I'm not exactly sure why. I just wasn't engaged this time around, and the story seemed slower. A lot of the story solicited the reactions "Meh" or "Really?" and for some reason the second person stuff bothered me more this time around. I'm not sure whether there was actually more of it or whether it felt odder because it was mixed in with more first-person stuff? Maybe? And I had trouble empathizing with Nassun's motivations in parts of it. In retrospect, we spent the entire book waiting around until the moon gets close enough to do something about it.
I don't really have specific criticisms; it just didn't really work for me. The chapters set in the past didn't make the world more interesting. I was half-tempted to drop it partway through and finished it basically to have the complete story. I have a feeling I'm going to be the exception, though, and everyone else will love it.
