Review
Well worth the wait for better editing.

Aside from a few strange perspective shifts here and there, the typos and problems that have plagued this series are largely gone in this new chapter.
And yet, the author still retains her highly addictive voice. This story is like a wonderful dessert and I never want it to end. (Which is definitely saying something 11 books in. My interest has not waned in the least.)

Thank you for a wonderful installment, already (politely) salivating for the next.  Check Library Catalog

Great end to a trilogy!  Check Library Catalog
Review
While I agree that this is Great Novel, it definitely would have benefitted from a fairly severe editing down in size. Several parts of the story seemed to, unnecessarily, go on forever: Theo making his way out of the museum, Theo and Boris, living their stoner life in Las Vegas, Theo, sick in the hotel in Amsterdam, to name a few.

When a book gets bogged down in detail and repetition, the flow of the story can become hard to follow. This novel is 771 pages. I'm thinking 625-650 would have been just about right.  Check Library Catalog
