Well, that, and disappointed. How did Ee go so wrong?
She started out so strong and created such an interesting world with gutsy characters I loved and then it just fell completely flat. I had been wanting to read this book series for so long. The premise sounded awesome, the covers were hauntingly beautiful, and everyone and their cat was raving about it.
I barely managed to hold off reading them until the final book came out so I could marathon them. Was it because my expectations were too high?
I was waiting for this huge grand finale, the Battle of Hogwarts, Katniss storming the Capitol, Percy fighting Kronos, and I got a talent show?
What even? It was a bit lame compared to the rest of the series. It in no way compared to the gritty, dark, and epically badass scenes in the previous two books. The first word that came to mind after I read the last page: Susan Ee played it completely safe.
A mildly entertaining final battle, mildly entertaining dialogue, mildly entertaining characters. Everything was mild. Safe and sacrifice are two words that should never go together when storytelling. Not that I was feeling much of anything while reading this book.
Now, I am a bit conflicted about this critique because it makes it seems like I love when the best characters get killed off. I hate it when great characters die. I am pained when they die. I cry when they die. Harry Potter and Hunger Games left my tear ducts dry for weeks. And while I do hate it when authors kill off some of their best characters, I understand it. This character is fictional. They are nothing the least bit tangible. But when one is moved to tears over the death of a fictional character, it simply shows what an amazing writer that author is.
How well they constructed that character and made them come to life and connect with the reader. That is true magic. While her first two books had strongly written characters that I connected with, in this book, I felt that connection severed. Apocalyptic and dystopian worlds are like a dead, decaying body. I want the author to cut it open and fearlessly display the rotten insides crawling with maggots.
I want the author to reach in and yank out the blackened heart and toss it aside. I want the author to be my tour guide through the dark abyss where that heart used to beat. I want dark and gritty and cruel. And above all I want human. I want to see the dark underbelly of humanity.
See humans at their worst; see humans at their best. Watch them fail; watch them succeed. Witness them tearing each other apart; witness them building each other up. They will either give up or give it everything they got.
Some will give in to the darkness of the world, some will give in to the darkness in themselves, and some will do something extraordinary. Though there might be evil wizards or natural disasters or corrupt dictators or bloodthirsty angels from heaven above, there is nothing that will show the true horrors and beauty of humanity like darkness.
And though that corpse is rotten and decaying, I want to see against all odds, that body be resurrected. All those aspects of the story remained stagnant from page one. And that corpse of humanity that was introduced to us in the first book was not resurrected, but merely given artificial life. Kindle Edition Verified download.
I finished this about a week ago, but keep thinking "oh, I want to finish my book. It is obvious that Ee wrote this under a severe deadline. Penryn is suddenly a different character, obsessed with Raffe and not caring about much about all the things that made her character so awesome. Even on an airplane, where I always read, I played a stupid game on my phone instead. I finally decided to go ahead and finish it, despite how many times I rolled my eyes and thought "really?
This is supposed to work in this situation There is nothing angelic about this Motley Crue of Viking-esk troupe of angels. They seem to be a bunch of barbaric goons with super power no more in touch with God then anyone else. They believe that there gargantuan statures and super powers makes them superior. But, miss the point that moral aptitude is not contingent on strength, beauty or any other physical attribute. Rather, moral acuity and the courage to stand by its process is the true superior sense.
Penryn embodies all of this. And even though the lessons of this trilogy are platitude-esk, the drama of it all hits home in a sincere way. There is unspeakable violence and nightmarish horrific scenes in this book which are not for the squeamish.
But, the author keeps Penryn light hearted and courageous. She see all of it thru a simple practical and pure way. It is a beautiful lesson of how we should conduct ourselves in the face of difficulty. I'm pretty sure I know what the cause was, but I could be wrong.
Originally, Susan Ee said that this was going to be a five-book series. Not three. Holy to both Judaism and Islam, the Mount is where nationalism and faith join in a volatile mix. Any attempt to spark the End by clearing the ground for the Temple, therefore, could ignite holy war. Cain murdered Abel, according to an ancient legend, in an argument over who would possess the Temple Mount. That parable sums up the passions aroused by the sacred hilltop.
The End of Days shows, with clarity and poise, how conflict over Jerusalem is rooted not only in the past but even more in expectations of the future, and how the fiery belief in apocalypse has a very real impact on contemporary life and international politics. Peter Benairt, Editor The New Republic Few American journalists understand evangelical theology well enough to explain the Christian Right, few Israeli journalists take messianic Zionism seriously enough to explain the right-wing settlers, and few of either investigate Islam as more than a caricature.
Gershom Gorenberg has the intellectual depth and journalistic curiosity to do all three, and as a result, his warnings chill the bone.
Anne Roiphe Author of Lovingkindness and Fruitful This is an amazing book; it made me fear for our future. Gershom Gorenberg brings new information and a clear perspective to the issues of religious extremism and the settlement problem in Israel, and brought it all to life with wonderful portraits of real people.
The End of Days reads like a novel but describes religious visions that most closely resemble nightmares. It is an important alarm, calling out to all those who are concerned with the human capacity for unreason as well as the fate of Jerusalem.
Jackson Diehl Assistant managing editor, The Washington Post The End of Days is a clear-eyed and compelling account of the messianists, would-be prophets, and adventurers who have fixed their sights on Jerusalem's holy places. Brenda E. Brasher, Ph. It concisely depicts how one small landmass in Jerusalem is ground zero for the end-times dreams and the fears of three world religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
With eerie ease, Gorenberg brings people who think the world is about to end so close they seem like one's next-door neighbors. He deftly portrays how American and Israeli politicians and religious leaders court the support of radical religious subgroups while ignoring how their actions fuel apocalyptic violence.
No one has ever presented people awash with apocalyptic fever more credibly. Extremely well-written and absorbing, this book will be keenly appreciated by thoughtful and aware people throughout America and the Middle East. Gershom Gorenberg is a writer of great talent and subtlety. The End of Days is at once compelling analysis and beautiful writing. The Passions of Jerusalem are given a rare and dazzling treatment. This is an exceptional book.
