Review The After Room The Apothecary #3

It’s 1955 and Benjamin Burrows and Janie Scott are trying to live a safe normal life in America It’s not easy when they have the power to prevent nuclear disaster and sinister forces are circling Soon the advice of a mysterious unscrupulous magician propels Janie and Benjamin. It s been a while since I read this series and I really hadn t given it a thought since I read book two in 2013 Still when it popped up on the audio review list I thought eh why notThe After Room like the rest of the series is a pleasant read but it s not one that really stands out in any particular way I like elements of the story and characters but also any time I try to sit down and think about the strengths of this book I m left without much of anything to say The plot s a bit convoluted the magic herein contained so easy and convenient that it really loses the cool factor I mean Janie hears that telekinesis is possible and teaches it to herself no problem It s not even a huge plot thing it mostly just happensHowever the audiobook was truly fantastic The narrator Cristin Milioti does a great job with all of the voices and accents Even though I wasn t absorbed by the plot of the book itself I sped through the audiobook because she was so good at the storytelling

The After Room The Apothecary #3

Into danger and toward the land of the dead   Meanwhile their friend Jin Lo washes up on a remote island where an American spy is stationed and finds herself on the trail of a deadly threat in China But she’s on the other side of the world how can Janie and Benjamin reach he. This review is also available on my blog Read Till DawnThis is I have to say a very strange trilogyBut I love it I can t help loving it even when I m wrinkling my brow and going huh This was the perfect conclusion to the trilogy wrapping things up for everyone in such a way that just makes senseI was a little worried going in about the theology considering the way the characters can actually send their minds to talk with dead people It s very strange yes but there s no direct reference to any specific religion and Meloy keeps it ambiguous enough that I think readers can interpret everything however they want toHonestly I don t have much to say about this book because it is such a peculiar gem that so perfectly ends the series This series is one of those things that you either love or hate and I love it but at the same time sometimes I pause and go hmm weird The strange mix of science and magic ie alchemy works wonderfully throughout the series and the plots of all three books are realistic and compelling I honestly felt the characters emotions bleed into me as I read making me laugh and cry and occasionally blush along with themThe entire trilogy is one of those things that I have a hard time analyzing because it s so uniue and flawless that I can t think of any ways to change it No wait I do have one way the ending I would have liked a little bit of a punchier final scene Then again I was mulling it over in my head for like a week afterward so maybe the slightly underrated ending was the way to go Hmm Gah I know I sound so conflicted and confused Just read the series for yourself and you can make up your own mind about it I d love to know whether you love it or hate it

R The triumphant finale in the trilogy that began with Maile Meloy’s bestselling critically acclaimed The Apothecary and continued in its captivating seuel The Apprentices The After Room is full of enchantment and heart with Ian Schoenherr’s stunning illustrations throughout. By far my favorite of the three books it was so good and tied everything up perfectlyJust how far everyone has come over the past three books is unbelievable and the way the story came together in the end was wonderfulI m going to miss this series majorly but am so proud of the characters that I m almost not upset about having to say goodbyeIt just left a really good feeling with me and I m really happy now55 stars

    I found the first book of the Apothecary series to be beautifully written thoughtfully constructed and generally enchanting but thought that the second book was a bit of a throwaway I was hopeful and a bit nervous to start the third book The After Room was slow starting but once established a worthy end to the series Whil

    Thought this was uite cute This is a fun series that is somehow simultaneously fairly action packed while being laid back as well The characters are pretty interesting and mostly believable though some may lack a huge ABU

    This final book was really the perfect ending to a perfect trilogy If this is the kind of middle gradeYA books the author is able to write then I'm really hoping that she sticks with that genre instead of going back to writing adult novels I read one of those recently and wasn't impressed It was rather hard to believe that someone who could write such a fascinating series for younger readers could then write a book for a

    It was a good ending to the trilogy I guess as they are getting older hormones are complicating things While there were lots of locations and various characters some new some old there was not uite as much chemistrypotion making with the book that there has been in the past Still most of it was fast paced It was a little disjointed
