    It?s ironic, in a really sad way. There?s more closeness here, more love and acceptance, than anywhere else. White, black, brown, Christian, Muslim, all brought together by the greatest injustice of all. 4 1/2 stars. This has been such a fantastic series. I think Waking Gods wil...

    I?m kinda lukewarm on the final installment of this trilogy. And, in fact, while the concept of the whole trilogy has been pretty cool, I feel like ever since the first 100 pages or so of the first book, it has been kind of trending down hill. I wouldn?t say that it is bad, per se,...

    Reality doesn?t give a crap whether you pay attention to it or not. It?s still there. FINALLY! I've finished this book. It took me more than a month. It was just my busy routine those days. Now I'm free. So.. I was expecting little bit more high. Like a ton of action scenes! ...

    3.5 stars. I will always LOOOOOVE this series, but this was my least favorite of the three. Because this was the end of the trilogy ("for now," as Neuvel says in his acknowledgements) it definitely felt like an ending. And that made me realize that a large part of the appeal that th...

    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 ...

    5/5 stars Welcome to the family, new favorite trilogy and first favorite series of 2019. So far I've been having a wonderful reading year, and it's largely because of The Themis Files. I also want to quickly mention The Humans by Matt Haig, which got me into the hugest sci-fi m...

    I'm really happy with this. It was not a perfect book for me - neither were the other two - but I had fun. I think the series would've been better if it wasn't written in interviews and files and stuff. I just loved the story but sometimes I couldn't empathize with the characters t...

    3.5? A great conclusion to the trilogy but definitely my least favourite out of all the books. A lot did happen and some moments kept me guessing at to the end game and all, yet it didn?t feel as intense or exciting as in the previous books. Also, save for Vincent, Rose an...

    3.5 stars. I?m glad that I saw this series through. The first two books set such high expectations that this one fell short, sadly. I think a lot of it was interesting and I really applaud the author?s creativity. However, a lot of the message was heavy-handed, and it just made...

    I'm really happy with this. It was not a perfect book for me - neither were the other two - but I had fun. I think the series would've been better if it wasn't written in interviews and files and stuff. I just loved the story but sometimes I couldn't empathize with the characters t...

    This is the final book of the Themis trilogy and I don't think it would work as a standalone. The giant robots that visited Earth in the last book have returned to their home planet, Esat Ekt. Unfortunately, Dr. Rose Franklin, Eva Reyes, her father Vincent Couture and General Eugene Go...

    This was such a disappointing ending for a series I really liked up until this point!! In the first book we found giant alien robot pieces found around the world and there were lots of questions about where they came from and what was their purpose. In the second book there was m...

    I?m kinda lukewarm on the final installment of this trilogy. And, in fact, while the concept of the whole trilogy has been pretty cool, I feel like ever since the first 100 pages or so of the first book, it has been kind of trending down hill. I wouldn?t say that it is bad, per se,...

    3.5 stars. I will always LOOOOOVE this series, but this was my least favorite of the three. Because this was the end of the trilogy ("for now," as Neuvel says in his acknowledgements) it definitely felt like an ending. And that made me realize that a large part of the appeal that th...

    5/5 stars Welcome to the family, new favorite trilogy and first favorite series of 2019. So far I've been having a wonderful reading year, and it's largely because of The Themis Files. I also want to quickly mention The Humans by Matt Haig, which got me into the hugest sci-fi m...

    I'm really happy with this. It was not a perfect book for me - neither were the other two - but I had fun. I think the series would've been better if it wasn't written in interviews and files and stuff. I just loved the story but sometimes I couldn't empathize with the characters t...

    This is the final book of the Themis trilogy and I don't think it would work as a standalone. The giant robots that visited Earth in the last book have returned to their home planet, Esat Ekt. Unfortunately, Dr. Rose Franklin, Eva Reyes, her father Vincent Couture and General Eugene Go...

    This was such a disappointing ending for a series I really liked up until this point!! In the first book we found giant alien robot pieces found around the world and there were lots of questions about where they came from and what was their purpose. In the second book there was m...

    Ohmygosh... The FEELS at the end! Neuvel rocked it once again with his series finale to the Themis Files. In Only Human, Vincent, his daughter Eva, Dr. Rose Franklin, and the General had been whisked off to the aliens' planet of Esat Ekt as the 4 were celebrating their victory whil...

    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 stoppi...

    A befitting conclusion to this fantastic series . This was a highly philosophical and thought provoking novel . Though its pacing was slower than the previous two installments it was more epic in scale . And more emotional too . The last few pages almost brought me to tears . Overall t...

    3.5? A great conclusion to the trilogy but definitely my least favourite out of all the books. A lot did happen and some moments kept me guessing at to the end game and all, yet it didn?t feel as intense or exciting as in the previous books. Also, save for Vincent, Rose an...

    3.5 stars. I?m glad that I saw this series through. The first two books set such high expectations that this one fell short, sadly. I think a lot of it was interesting and I really applaud the author?s creativity. However, a lot of the message was heavy-handed, and it just made...

    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 lite...

    3,5 stars for this dark final book that marks the end of an incredible series. Instead of ending The Themis Files trilogy with a bang, Neuvel shows us a bleak and realistic world that didn?t take alien invasions lightly. And as we learn, neither did the aliens. 10 years after Rose...

    5/5 stars Welcome to the family, new favorite trilogy and first favorite series of 2019. So far I've been having a wonderful reading year, and it's largely because of The Themis Files. I also want to quickly mention The Humans by Matt Haig, which got me into the hugest sci-fi m...

    I'm really happy with this. It was not a perfect book for me - neither were the other two - but I had fun. I think the series would've been better if it wasn't written in interviews and files and stuff. I just loved the story but sometimes I couldn't empathize with the characters t...

    3.5? A great conclusion to the trilogy but definitely my least favourite out of all the books. A lot did happen and some moments kept me guessing at to the end game and all, yet it didn?t feel as intense or exciting as in the previous books. Also, save for Vincent, Rose an...

    3.5 stars. I?m glad that I saw this series through. The first two books set such high expectations that this one fell short, sadly. I think a lot of it was interesting and I really applaud the author?s creativity. However, a lot of the message was heavy-handed, and it just made...

    The final book in the trilogy! This one's a hard one to review only because it bucks expectations. Maybe only mine, but still. Did I want answers and a big robot battle? Yes. Did I get answers and a big robot battle? Absolutely. The direction of the storytelling will probably ...

    5/5 stars Welcome to the family, new favorite trilogy and first favorite series of 2019. So far I've been having a wonderful reading year, and it's largely because of The Themis Files. I also want to quickly mention The Humans by Matt Haig, which got me into the hugest sci-fi m...

    I'm really happy with this. It was not a perfect book for me - neither were the other two - but I had fun. I think the series would've been better if it wasn't written in interviews and files and stuff. I just loved the story but sometimes I couldn't empathize with the characters t...

    It?s ironic, in a really sad way. There?s more closeness here, more love and acceptance, than anywhere else. White, black, brown, Christian, Muslim, all brought together by the greatest injustice of all. 4 1/2 stars. This has been such a fantastic series. I think Waking Gods wil...

    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...

    4.5/5 stars A satisfying philosophical and thought-provoking conclusion to Themis Files trilogy. The Themis Files trilogy began with Rose Franklin finding an arm of a giant robot, since then, the first and second book has been pretty focused on the mystery surrounding this robot....

    "The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability." Normally, I wouldn't be writing this review because most of the things I have to say about the series are usually covered in my first review, b...

    4.5 stars. The giant robots are back!! On sale today, May 1, 2018. Review first posted on Fantasy Literature: Only Human wraps up Sylvain Neuvel?s excellent THEMIS FILES science fiction trilogy with some surprising plot turns. *Expect some spoilers for the first two books, Sleepin...

    I?m kinda lukewarm on the final installment of this trilogy. And, in fact, while the concept of the whole trilogy has been pretty cool, I feel like ever since the first 100 pages or so of the first book, it has been kind of trending down hill. I wouldn?t say that it is bad, per se,...

    This one wasn?t quite as thrilling or action packed as the first two books in the series, but I still loved it so much. If y?all like SciFi and haven?t read this series yet, WHAT ARE YOU EVEN DOING????? ...

    Reality doesn?t give a crap whether you pay attention to it or not. It?s still there. FINALLY! I've finished this book. It took me more than a month. It was just my busy routine those days. Now I'm free. So.. I was expecting little bit more high. Like a ton of action scenes! ...

    3.5 stars. I will always LOOOOOVE this series, but this was my least favorite of the three. Because this was the end of the trilogy ("for now," as Neuvel says in his acknowledgements) it definitely felt like an ending. And that made me realize that a large part of the appeal that th...

    3.5ish stars. After the cliffhanger ending of book #2, Waking Gods, I was expecting this book to pick up right after the last one ended. When I read the synopsis: "Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shamble...

    "We're a bunch of babies, a few billion of them, all scared to death. We're going to kill ourselves if we're left to our own devices." Ok, I have't loved this trilogy as much as I'd hoped. I definitely think book 2 was my favourite - so much happened, with so many twists. In compa...
