DNF @ around 50%
I liked the first two books of the trilogy much more than MaddAddam- I loved learning more about Zeb's backstory, and the ever-expanding web between all of the characters. The setting is dark, the word-building is creative, and the books leave me with plenty to think about in the real world where we're juggling climate collapse and a global pandemic. I was thoroughly bummed by the only explicitly gay character being an "evil assassin"- can we please end the trope that the LGBTQ person is the villain?
