    One thought on “The Conformity”

    1. The Twelve-Fingered Boy trilogy comes to a conclusion with THE CONFORMITY. This is one where it is best to read all of the books in order, so it might be best to stop reading now if you haven't read the first two books.Shreve has survived Mr. Quincrux. But as terrible as Quincrux was, he had a point. The Conformity is coming, and Shreve and the other extranatural teens must be prepared to fight it. It particularly wants Shreve, for his powerful telepathy and mind control. Shreve is mostly over h [...]

    2. Interesting end to a weird trilogy. I never fully got into the writing or characters, so I didn't really care what happened to them in the end, but I guess it ended decently. Not likely to recommend the series but I don't regret reading it.

    3. Oh my lord this book was amazing. I don't understand why it is only getting 4 stars most of the time. I was crying by the time i finished this series. 100% recommend

    4. In the previous two books in Jacobs' trilogy, he borrowed heavily from existing horror stories, but made his stories unique partly through Shreve's voice. In The Conformity, he mixes up his formula, and I question if it works as well as he thinks it does.For one thing, what he borrows from horror is a little too distinctive to borrow: He adopts the giant-person-made-up-of-regular-people idea that Clive Barker used in "In the Hills, the Cities". I've never seen that trope used in any other horro [...]

    5. Angsty superheroes, depressed gods, human filth, and a whole lot of darkness. Welcome to The Conformity, by John Hornor Jacobs.The Conformity is the third in John Hornor Jacobs’ Twelve-Fingered Boy trilogy, a series about a boy, and the group of damaged teens who surround him, learning to deal with the terrible things that have happened to them while simultaneously using their over-the-top psychic superpowers to blow holes in things, jack people’s memories, fly, and do all of the other thing [...]

    6. As a whole, I enjoyed these books, yet I was surprised at the short shrift Jacobs gave the endingapter after chapter of character perspectives, yet the ending was essentially "this happened, then this happened, the end". Really surprised it turned out like that. We had fight scenes that lasted 50 pages, but the finale of a trilogy was only a couple pagesdisappointing.

    7. Last entry in the Twelve Fingered Boy series. In this volume, we set aside all the ways in which "The System" can discard, abuse or torture society's lost boys (basis for the story in previous volumes) and settle in on a truly nightmarish concept of the world's end. Shreve, the hero-super-telepath and his small group of telepathic/telekinetic misfits must find a way to end "The Conformity" or the world (maybe the universe?) is toast.The end came abruptly, right in the middle of a Companions Ques [...]

    8. I love this entire saga! It was intriguing and exciting from start to finish. This third volume and conclusion brings a much more powerful sense of desolation and powerlesness to the team of kids with superpowers who have been taken captive and trained in order to confront the mysterious force that is felt in the country.There were moments when I completely connected to these characters and hated when they fought each other and formed factions. This I believe speaks of the hability of Hornor Jac [...]

    9. I enjoyed the book as a whole, the whole trilogy is a beautiful story. But I didn't understand some of the plot decisions. Why go through so much trouble to find horses, and then just leave them there and start flying? Why go through so much trouble to find a doctor, only to not be necessary? Beautiful writing and deep thoughts aren't enough. I was a bit disappointed :(

    10. 3.5 Beggining was muddled/confusing and a bit boring. As soon as the story started to be told from others points of veiw it picked up and was much better.
