"Meh" pretty much sums it up. Too bad, the world was interesting. ( )

Third of a trilogy whose first two volumes both won the Hugo, and on this year's final ballot. I was among the very few who was not particularly grabbed by the previous two, and I'm afraid this one equally failed to grab me. I liked the mother-and-daughter theme, but I remain confused by the world-building and unengaged by the characters and indeed by the plot. ( )

This third and final volume is a majestic and magesterial wrap-up that cements the Broken Earth Trilogy as a future classic of fantasy literature. The stakes are high as can be, the ideas provacative and thought provoking, the characters deep, tragic, admirable, alien, and human. Masterpiece! ( )
