Chimera (Parasitology, #3)Chimera by Mira Grant

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I didn't like the concluding book of this series as well as the previous two, and I'm having trouble pinpointing exactly why.

I think the ratio of dialogue to exposition is off; Sal spends way too much time in this book thinking about things rather than talking to people or engaging in action. I also think this book does way too much of the reminding readers of people and events from previous books thing; I really dislike that tactic. If I can't remember Sal's accident or who Dr. Banks is or the reveal about Sherman at this point, I have some serious problems. There was some of this in the second book, but the third book was kinda overloaded with it.

I also didn't like that one of the main motivating factors in Sherman's interest in Sal was a twisted desire for her to love him.

I did like the way Colonel Mitchell ultimately had the courage to make some very tough decisions. I did like that Joyce knew all along that Sally was dead and Sal had taken her place and chose to love Sal anyway. That was probably the most moving part of the whole series for me.

I also really liked Fishy's character and the way he chose to deal with the apocalypse by believing that he's a character in a video game. He was funny and unpredictable.

Overall, I liked the series, and I'm glad I read it.
