There are no other words for it than it was absolutely perfect. February 12, Publisher: All my eye-rolling did not stop me from devouring this book. How is this possible? He’s got his house full of locked doors like Bluebeard on steroids and Linden’s not going to be like “Dad, what the fuck are you doing in the basement?

Glad it is a good series ending. Looking forward to what else Lauren has in store for us! Like, Jesus Christ on a fucking cracker, it takes more more than 4 hours for me to drive to the Grand Canyon and I live in goddamn Arizona. We’ll start with Linden, who is possibly the stupidest character I have ever had the displeasure of reading. But, in my opinion, everything else looks incredible. The Chemical Gardens trilogy was one of my first forays into the dystopian genre. Team Gabriel aaaallllll the way.

She and two other girls, Cecily and Jenna, are picked out of a line up by Linden and his father, Vaughn. I sometimes felt like the story was dragging and I was afraid the author wouldn’t be abl I really loved reading this book, it felt good to immerse myself into Rhine’s story once again.

I agree, Lauren is lovely and so nice! The final as usual was unbelievable. I have a cast list of who would best play who, posted on my review of Fever. And you know I have to mention the other point of the love triangle, Gabriel. But Rhine just like, doesn’t care.


However, in this case, I will make an exception, because, though I don’t recall the word ever being used, this series runs off of horror movie logic: Please, tell me more about how traumatizing that was for you. I just think that if you’re going to name the whole freaking trilogy after the Chemical Gardens then they need a bit more attention. Jan 09, Lindsey rated it it was amazing. Like, without even flinching or saying no or protesting in any way.

Explanations of the world building are finally answered and it may not be the answer I was looking for, it did at least answer some of my questions. Rhine, Cecily, and Linden get into the airplane that Uncle Reed has been restoring in his barn even though he admits he’s never flown a plane before.

This one put the rest into perspective and made me sit back and think about what I would do in that situation. Sep 23, Deanna rated it liked it. Then the times when she was with Linden, I got annoyed on Rhine’s behalf. He’s an attractive man with pockets well-grown, so there’s no fucking reason he needs to pick up women from the slave trade. Linden brings Rhine and Cecily to Vaughn’s brother, who differs from him in so many ways and allows them to take refuge in his home while they form a plan.

Maybe the author will treat Gabriel fans to a novella or short story in the future? She has this keen ability to write about the human mind and all its wonders. What could have been a thought-provoking look at Stockholm Syndrome turned into yet another instance of turning a creep into a viable love interest.

SEVER by Lauren DeStefano | Kirkus Reviews

First off, I didn’t like how many mixed signals we got as readers. His world-saving ambitions have always been very clear. By destefanp point, though, the acknowledged Stockholm Syndrome-ishness of it is gone, and we’re apparently supposed to think Linden is a prince among men. How come so many people like Linden? What makes me so fucking pissed off about this series is the purity myth that it’s putting forward.



Don’t truncate your work because it doesn’t fit into a mold. Add to Cart Add to Cart. Lists with This Book. I felt the ending was rushed and the information was dumped in the end, but at least there were some answers. Who wants the servant destefnao Simple, how simple can I get?

sver I suppose I should be relieved that half of the most ridiculous parts of the premise has been waved away.

Also, she doesn’t spend pages and pages on the romantic storyline.

Sever (Chemical Gardens #3) by Lauren DeStefano

Return to Book Page. Like what the destevano yo, what fucking purpose does this serve omg if you’re going to kill Linden at least do it in a way that services the plot not just “lol he died randomly on a joyride” 8. Hope for what, exactly? The Chemical Garden 3 books.

But if she decides to break it off with both guys and live the rest of her short life with her twin then I won’t be that mad. Tell us what you like, so we can send you books you’ll love.

It was interesting, and I don’t regret reading it or anything, I just don’t think this series has much merit beyond mindless entertainment.
