4.0 out of 5 stars A Fitting Conclusion, July 7 2014

This review is from: Ruin and Rising (Hardcover)
A great ending to a really fun trilogy. I was a little sad to know it is all over, but I believe Bardugo did her characters justice.
In a story like this it is generally obvious how it may end, which was the case here, but I still found the last few chapters suspenseful enough to keep my attention.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little left to be desired., Nov. 30 2011
This review is from: Zone One: A Novel (Hardcover)
Though the book was a fun ride, I found myself wanting more. I understand that there was a minimalist approach to the themes of this book - both in the past and the present - to let the reader imagine the scenarios on a personal basis, but I found myself wanting more action and a more complete conclusion; but I do understand the ending, as there really is no ending in an 'End of the World' scenario.

I did enjoy the ties made to modern consumerism and trends in North America throughout the book, a very good reflection of soicety.

I would recommend the book, though it would not be number one on my list.
