Only Human (Themis Files #3) Reviews
“I can’t make the forest grow faster because I want it to. I can’t will it to grow. It takes time. I hoped it could happen during my lifetime, but i don’t think it can. All I can do is plant some seeds, take care of the seedlings, and hope someone else does it after I’m gone.”
― Sylvain Neuvel, Only Human
I think the third book suffered a bit in comparison to the first two, it was still entertaining enough for me to continue, but i honestly expected much more.
A bittersweet and kind of disappointin ...more
This was a much anticipated book, especially with the closing scene of Waking Gods. Once more, Neuvel doesn’t go for the easy solution, which is probably going to divide his readership.
Several years have passed by and through a plethora of documents, we piece slowly together what has been happening to Vincent, Rose, Eva and General Eugene Govender on the alien planet, as well as on Earth. To show us Esat Ekt was always going to take some of the wonder away, especially when these alien cultures ...more
I hadn't been this excited about the last book in a series in a while and... meh.
There were some interesting parts, I was really curious to learn more about the aliens and I appreciated some of the author's thoughts but the dialogues felt too forced and really tried to be funny and sassy and it ended up a bit of a let down.
I still think it's a fun, fast-paced series but the ending didn't blow me away!
I finished Only Human a day after it came out and have to say I'm quite disappointed with the book. I've read all three of the series (of course), and I truly liked the first two, but I would not recommend anyone else to waste money on this volume. Better leave it at two, even if it's a cliffhanger.
The setup in book one and two was great. They were well organized and I tore through them in a day each at work. I pre-ordered Only Human immediately after finishing the first and the second book. Onl ...more
This was so good! The whole trilogy is really amazing. I actually remember reading the first book in the trilogy, Sleeping Giants, and thinking that it was just okay. Everything changed when I decided to try the audiobook for the story. I was really able to appreciate the story much more with the help of the narrators. When I picked up the second book, Waking Gods, I was worried that I wouldn't be as impressed by the book in print after my experience with this previous book but I liked that book ...more

3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/30/...
What a crazy ride it’s been. Only Human is the third book of the Themis Files trilogy, bringing an end to a saga that first began in Sleeping Giants, where as a child, protagonist Rose Franklin quite literally stumbled upon a discovery of a lifetime. While exploring the woods near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota, she accidentally fell into a square hole in the ground containing what was later identified as the hand of ...more
Oh my gosh I actually shed a tear when I got to the end of Only Human – possibly because of what happened in it but mostly because THIS IS THE END. What an amazing, entertaining, creative and brilliantly written trilogy.
This series has had it all, amazing characters, heart stopping action, emotional trauma, and GIANT ROBOTS. Did I mention the GIANT ROBOTS?
So Only Human completes the tale, here we find some of our friends living on an alien planet until OOPS nope they are home. But what the heck ...more
