    Forgiveness was for people who didn t have as much to lose.this is the third part in mira grant s parasitology trilogy but hopefully, fingers crossed, not the end of the story not that it doesn t wrap up well it ends in a satisfying place, but as any mira grant fan knows, there s always to the story than can fit comfortably in a trilogy and that s why she has written 6 novellas and short stories branching out from her newsflesh series, with a fourth, full length standalone book to be published in 2016 yayyyyy and just because she hasn t yet written any parasitology offshoots, some of us have our fingers crossed into little twisty finger tangles hoping this series will eventually get the same treatment and i m also hoping for a published, illustrated version of Don t Go Out Alone with the same desperate hopefulness i have for the publication of the graphic novel from Station Eleven because grant writes characters and situations i never want to see the end of and i m not the only one, as is clear by lena s comment in the thread Have you started How s it going How much Tansy is there I need Tansy to answer that question, not that much and it s complicated if tansy is your favorite character in these books and she should be, or there s something wrong with you , you might want to go back and reread the first two, because her adorable badassery is not a part of the sto...

    Okay, there s still no zombies in this book, not that I was actually expecting any, but all those Throwbacks are such a close fit, I just had to add the descriptor.How did the trilogy end Was it a satisfying ride Did it fulfill all my expectations It was okay It didn t quite wow me like Newsflesh did I enjoyed the feel of falling deeper into Sal s viewpoint all the way from book one and having a slow burn, and it did promise to have a pretty interesting finale So now that I ve made it through book three, did it fill the promise Yes, and no I got the feeling that the story was there and the expected grandness of destruction was also there, but at the same time, it just wasn t pulled off.It didn t suck Loose ends were picked up Sal got to confront or engage with all the interested parties, and no one was left unscathed She wasn t a real fighter, after all, and being a family gal will only get her a so so epic rating, but I still feel like the series could have shined .Perhaps I didn t like the feeling ...

    I ve not been terribly excited about this trilogy It s overlong and there are no twists anywhere.Sal is back with her father and the evil head of Symbogen, having given herself up so that her fiance and a friend can escape Meanwhile, the megalomaniac tapeworm Sherman has enacted his master plan and infected the water supply with clones of Sal s tapeworm having removed her personality information and made it even invasive So Sal needs to escape the military version of the CDC and get back to Dr Cale so that they can stop Sherman somehow Like the previous books this is about several groups of people driven by their own agendas and morals, and the various attempts by them to control Sal and the other groups It s also about endless repetition of Sal wanting everyone to survive and loving everyone, including the Sleepwalkers To her credit, this book is where she comes into her own and actually takes some control of this stuff, but she s st...

    This review appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews Reading this series is always a delightfully horrific and philosophical experience Being centered around a scientific experiment gone wrong, causing tapeworms that were meant to be the end of human disease and suffering to overtake their hosts, it gets pretty squeamish during some parts.That s part of the appeal of the Parasitology series, the pure horror of knowing that some of the people you interact with are no longer human Instead, they re tapeworms living in human brains, either driving the human hosts into a zombie like state or becoming a rare incidence of chimera, who think and even believe that they re that human.What s even fascinating about this series, is the realism that this could actually happen 13 years from now If a new technology came out that could cure all diseases, that could safeguard you from any cold or virus, that could prolong your lifespan and give you quality of life would you take it no matter the cost Chimera is the third book in...

    3.5 starsThis was a mostly satisfying conclusion to the trilogy I just can t help but feel somewhat disappointed though I don t think the trilogy as a whole lived up to the promise of the first book I think some of the most i...

    3.5 stars This is decent finish to the trilogy that ties up most of the loose ends Overall I enjoyed the series, but it felt slightly overwritten and long in parts Grant s skill as a writer made up for that flaw for the most part As a whole the series was a solid 3.5 stars.

    If I wanted to, I could probably write a long rant about Chimera and Parasitology as a whole But I m too disappointed and I just don t fucking care enough, which is really the biggest problem After finally being won over by book one, books two and three frustrated me no end, and I m left just glad that it s over.The plot of both Symbiont and Chimera can be summed up in one word kidnapping For 1000 pages, someone is always getting kidnapped Then they have to go rescue them Then they re all so happy to be together again for like two chapters Then someone gets kidnapped Usually it s Sal, but sometimes it s other people for variety see Tansy, see most of Dr Cale s team I m sick of the kidnapping, and I m sick of Sal s stupid sacrificial rescue plans I m sick of it all.After Parasite, I was riding high I loved the whole cast so much That held in through much of Symbiont, but by just a bit of the way into Ch...

    Grant takes us into the not so distant future, introduces us to a world on the cutting edge of medical technology, and shows us how miracle medical cures could be society s downfall Eerily realistic it highlighted financial greed, humanity s search for the magic pill and ponders how far in the name of science is too far.Since the beginning of the trilogy Grant has presented multiple perspectives some in diary format, audio messages, and others in scientific documents Throughout the trilogy, we have watched the transformation and growth of protagonist Sal as she finds herself caught on both sides of this war We witness good characters, greedy characters, sympathetic characters and villains who will make you shiver Human and parasites alike fall into these categories I love that Grant did not make this a battle against good and evil, but gave it a realistic perspective where both sides need to compromise.One of the things that impressed me with the trilogy and particularly Chimera is that Grant blurs the lines between humans and tapeworms The characters played a large role in this transformation Sal in particular as well as her brother Adam and her sister Tan...

    Mira Grant of Feed fame has finished another wonderful science fiction trilogy, proving again that she knows how to write good endings.In the final Parasitology book, the tapeworms are spreading Countless people are getting infected and turned into mindless husks, incapable of complex thought, ruled by their instincts It is up to Sal and her friends to save the world but the world doesn t seem to want to be saved.An issue that is incredibly prevalent in science fiction is a lack of character growth and development More often than not, sci fi characters are mere sock puppets, mouth pieces for the author to express a certain message Grant the pseudonym of Seanan McGuire takes a solid science based concept, and combines it with characters that feel real At the core of the Parasitology trilogy lies the story of Sal coming into herself She is the focus of the books, and Chimera shows the final part of her journey into accepting what and who she is, and finding her place in a broken world Because so much careful attention is spent on Sal s development, I felt that some other characters were done a bit short I would have loved to read from the points of view of other key characters the short pieces of autobiographical writing at the start of chapters provided a welcome insight into their minds, but I was left wanting to know .Like all the other bo...
