“I’d rather trust the versions of ourselves we don’t remember than trust people who don’t know us at all.”
I really enjoyed reading the first two parts of the Never Never series last year and I have been waiting anxiously for the third and final part ever since. It wasn’t a surprise whatsoever that I just HAD to get a copy as soon as it was published… And you can imagine this excitement made by final disappointment by this ending all the bigger. I have just one question for Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher: WHY???!!! After the first two parts there were so many possible endings for this story, and I still cannot believe the road they decided to take in Never Never Part Three. I won’t go into details to avoid spoilers for those who haven’t read it yet, but what I can say is that I almost vomited because of the cheesiness of this third part and I was really tempted to throw my kindle against the wall by the time I reached the ending. What used to be an intriguing mystery story about two teenagers with memory loss has been turned into a story you either love or hate… And unfortunately I don’t belong to the first group. If you don’t mind (cheesy) romance, you will probably enjoy this final part though.
WARNING: do not read this summary if you haven’t read the first two parts yet! It will most likely contain spoilers, even though I’ve made sure to keep it short.
Silas and Charlie still don’t have their memories back and are not really closer to finding out the truth about why and how they lost it in the first place… Together they will have to look deeper into their past to see if they can dig up any new information. Meanwhile, the time is ticking and they only have limited time before their memories are reset again… Or so it seems. Could it be that Silas is keeping something secret from Charlie? Will they restore their memories and regain what they once had?
The first half of Never Never Part Three was quite good and I was able to enjoy the prose as much in the first two parts. But as soon as I realized the path Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher had decided to take I was starting to feel uncomfortable. I don’t like cheesy romance and after the first two parts that was definitely NOT what I signed up for. Without going into further details, I can say I was more than disappointed with the ending and in a way I wish I hadn’t read the final part…Because the whole series is now kind of ruined for me. If you haven’t read the series or the final part yet and don’t like cheesy romance, hereby consider yourself warned.
