My all time favourite book series. Hands down.
I was never one for Sci-Fi novels but I am SO glad that I ended up finding this series. The emotional impact this has had on me. Wow. I have laughed, cried and screamed over these books more times than I can count. I have re-read the first 2 books to go into this one with a better idea of the story and I still went through all of these emotions for the second time. I am so glad that I got the audiobook to play along as I read the book because it amplified the high and low parts immensely. At certain parts, I was simply sitting in my bed at 1 am and quietly sobbing my eyes out. Could not recommend this more. I admit, after the first 2 books certain plot twists were predictable but there are literally plot twists every 10 pages (especially at the end) so I barely noticed it. The last few chapters are everything I could have ever asked for to conclude this book. Explaining the gaps in the story, justice, THE FREAKING PARACHUTE and, FINALLY, that moment of calmness and happiness we have all been waiting for. I literally just finished this book and I am so touched that I just had to express it somewhere.
