I wanted to love it but I couldn t Too much if they could just finish their sentence we could avoid all of this and the time travel and I m doing this because my future version did it for ridiculous and tedious Same thing over and over, seemed the catch all for everything Also Phillip didn t deserve what he got. I am so furious with this book I can t see straight.Spoilers to follow.Just to make this clear, I loved this series I gave Fight and Flight four stars Luke Daniels is an outstanding narrator, and the first 84% of this book hovered between 4 5 stars It was well paced, not boring, kept my attention, and genuinely intrigued me.Reviewing isn t an exact science Sometimes I adjust my rating as I read If a book starts off low and rebounds, I try to split the difference In hundreds of reviews this I am so furious with this book I can t see straight.Spoilers to follow.Just to make this clear, I loved this series I gave Fight and Flight four stars Luke Daniels is an outstanding narrator, and the first 84% of this book hovered between 4 5 stars It was well paced, not boring, kept my attention, and genuinely intrigued me.Reviewing isn t an exact science Sometimes I adjust my rating as I read If a book starts off low and rebounds, I try to split the difference In hundreds of reviews this is only my third 1 star review Even the book that snuck in a love affair between half brothers got 2 stars for writing style I m a fair reviewer Update While I initially increased the rating to 2 stars, the offensiveness of this book has been nagging at me the last few weeks The unforeseen complete drop off into utter shit at the 84% mark extinguished any excitement for this series I had, and it was so complete that it wiped out all the wonderful things I loved about this book until that point I mean it I ve been texting about this book for days and bothering all my friends There was good stuff there I couldn t care less about any of it now The ending Any of it.I was naggingly annoyed throughout the start of the book that the female characters would be condescending, rude, even cruel at times to the men and not face consequence for that Men are just idiots and that s the way it is, right No thank you Later in the book, two women even remark they women need a reason to fight, and men need a reason not to fight, as the sophisticated women sip on tea as the men embarrass themselves I m fucking sorry, but speaking as a feminist, a daughter s father, and a lover of women, has this author ever hung out with a pack of women Every person is their own individual, but women can be just as nasty as anyone else on the planet, in all senses of the word.Brit was an interesting character concept I m not going to get into much depth on her journey and her complaints and the ramifications of what s placed on her because she s a horrible human being and I m very sorry she wasn t eviscerated from the program in this book, because now there s no possibility of me reading another one Philip was informed unless he did XY, and Z, the universe would end, he still fought it, it still cost Brit nothing, and the cruelty she showed him extended to defaming him across her entire timeline for something terrible he didn t do, and everyone else just accepts this and treats her like their BFF I m surprised Brit was in the final scene of the book because there s no reason any other character should ever speak to her, and certainly no reason Philip isn t having a bonfire and torching all her stuff because the bitch is out of his life There was no plot related reason why the cover story had to be what it was It was unforgivable that it was spread to all of the other Brits without consent because the character was holding a grudge over having to work for years on a problem that was only a problem because she went against everybody and broke her own code Twice I cannot properly express how infuriating it was to see such a vile character be treated as perfectly acceptable beyond a couple of references to why you gotta be so mean The twenty minute fight scene, where we knew exactly how it would play out after ten seconds, was unnecessary padding that the book had been free of to that point It s a bad sign when even the characters called it unnecessary.I m so mad because I so loved this series and loved recommending it to people I got my own wife to start it yesterday I m in for it now As a fan of the series and the narrator, I ll probably listen to books 1 3 again, but this book was a disappointment The time traveling was overdone and overly silly, while the characterizations relationship of Philip and Brit were one dimensional, untrue to the previous incarnations, and cruel.
