It took 200 pages in before I was sold on this one. I flipped for The Adoration of Jenna Fox and was happy to read The Fox Inheritance, but this one just seemed tepid to me. It was as if the trilogy gods decreed that Jenna's story must have three books. Except that this wasn't Jenna's story, and I felt the loss. Locke just doesn't seem as deep a thinker as he should be for someone who has had nothing to do but think for 260 years. But... the last 100 pages made up for it and redeemed this one to ...more

I was really hoping there would not be a third book.
THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX was one of my favorite books when it came out. It was a perfect storm of things I love in science fiction. With FOX FOREVER, Mary E. Pearson brings the trilogy to a fitting end.

Despite the name of the book and series, Jenna Fox is not the main character of FOX FOREVER. That would be Locke Jenkins, one of her best friends and fellow accident "survivor." To escape the lab that created him, he promised a Favor. Now, that Favor is being called it. It requires him to get c

A clever, unique, and satisfying end to the Jenna Fox Chronicles Trilogy

Sci-fi fans will be thrilled with Fox Forever, the third book in the Jenna Fox Chronicles Trilogy.

Here's what I loved:
1. Locke Jenkins and his BioPerfect body is a complex character who has a Favor to fulfill - this is central to the story and it leads the reader on such a fascinating tale of the history of Non-Pacts. (People who are not citizens and have no personal rights.)

2. Melding the Boston of the past and future.

3. T
The ending.. the ending... the ending! Reading this was worth it even if just for that ending *sniff*

I had no idea there'd be a follow up and couldn't honestly recall who Locke was (because yes, it's been that long since I read the the first two,) but his story was interesting if a tad too easy to put together. For the first time on his own, you see him experience how different everything has become, among the changes is how country's divied up with non-pacts treated as second class and often w

The Jenna Fox Chronicles series concludes with Fox Forever, and my goodness this is by far the best of the series and the best ending to a book I’ve ever read (series/trilogy wise)! In Fox Forever, readers get a more in-depth look at how the resistance works, who’s involved, and learn more about non-pacts (the poor, low income people…who are not even considered citizens). Locke owes the Network a favor, and as promised they’re cashing in on the favor to rescue someone from the Secretary of secur ...more

Okay I'm not really going to review this. It was an excellent end to the series, and honestly I was pretty so-so on the story as a whole "like this is a pretty good book" but then when I reached the epilogue of a sorts, I started crying and couldn't stop till the end. I had NO idea I was going to do that because I do *not* cry in books! Like two ever! So. That ending alone bumped this up from 4 to 5 stars. :)

I have to say, The Adoration of Jenna Fox is one of my favorite books ever, and I wasn't
While I am glad I read the whole series, this was definitely a case of the subsequent books not meeting my enjoyment of book 1. It's not because the novelty was over (which is often the problem), but because these books, these characters, had flaws that book one didn't.

Locke is a child, put into some fairly adult situations. Asking him to do a favor that endangers his life, when he is still completely clueless about the world as well as, well, everything, just pushes my ability to believe to

eh, I can definitely say that out of all three of these books the first one was the best. This did nothing for me at all, I liked reading about Jenna more because it was interesting. Locke's point of view is mediocre at best.
Boring and unnecessary. The ending is satisfying, but she should have left the first book as a stand-alone. The romance doesn't work and there is no plot. Pointless book for the trilogy. Shame.

"I'm sure there's a lot you don't know about Raine." He walks over to my side of the desk so he's towering over me, and casually leans against it. "Just as there is so much I don't know about you." "My life's an open book," I tell him. "Anything you want to know, it's out there."

This series has had me captivated from the spot-on moment when I found it. The idea was so promising and I believed that I'd be able to love it from beginning to end. Now that it's all over and done with
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made"- Psalm 139: 13-14

Setting:Boston, Massachusetts; the future.

Coverly Love?:Yes; as always, the covers are hauntingly intriguing. Although I could have done without the male eye at the bottom. One pair of eyes staring at me is bad enough. Two is overkill.

Plot:Locke Jenkins has now been recruited by the Resistance forces of the government. Their mission? Take down

Locke has left Jenna's tranquil home and has returned to Boston to work with the Network. His job is to make friends with the daughter of Secretary Branson, who is most likely responsible for the death/disappearance of Karden, Miesha's husband. Karden had put together a lot of money to help the Network, but even Branson has just part of the numbers needed to access the account, and Locke hopes to find them out through his friendship with Raine. After a Rocky start, this turns in to a lot more th ...more

I wanted to like this book. I needed to like this book. I didn't like this book. The first book of the series, the Adoration of Jenna Fox, was amazing. The sci-fi was good, but the morality and questions it raised were incredibly insightful and I always wondered if the writer knew what she wrote and the morality questions she posed: What is a person? Where does personhood come from? How far will a parent go to protect his/her child? Would you risk your child's soul, and how can you answer that w ...more
I nearly quit reading this so many times, but would always just be barely interested enough to go on.

The first book in the series had some very interesting ideas and world-building and was by far the best. The second didn't build on the first as much as I'd hoped, but did still have some action and a little world development. This third didn't really add anything new, and the characters were bland and hard to connect to (the whole book is from Locke's point of view, but I couldn't really tell y
Okay I was happy with the way book one ended. I resented book two but read it and needed this book very much to once again complete the story of Jenna, Kara and Locke.
wow, where do i begin? huge disappointment. story felt forced and drawn out. every aspect of action/plot/development/overall story telling was way too over done/over explained. could not get through this fast enough. kept wanting to throw in the towel and call it quits but as a fan of the series felt i should at least finish entire book. i would not recommend. struggling between 1 & 2 star rating, only because i enjoyed the other books so much. on it's own this book is absolutely a 1 star fo ...more
I am having a hard time understanding why so many have been harsh about this book. It was perfect. I loved The Adoration of Jenna Fox and I thought The Fox Inheritance was good but Fox Forever topped it off for me.

We are well acquainted with Jenna and Locke. Book 2 ended well and left us wondering if Locke would find the same clarity as Jenna found from life. Would he come to the same place of satisfaction?

Locke is asked to return a favor to the resistance. This was a story of his quest. The w

In the conclusion to the Jenna Fox Chronicles, Locke is returning to Boston in order to make good on his favor. It's a top secret mission that only Locke can accomplish. To succeed, he must get into the inner circle of a government official and his daughter - Raine. As Locke completes this task, he will meet new friends and enemies, learn new secrets, and fall deeper into the resistance.

This final book of the Jenna Fox Chronicles is well worth the wait. You finally get to see how and where every

This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-
It was ok. It kinda sucks, because I barely remembered the first two novels, which I read about a year and a half ago, and then apparently didn't write any reviews for lol

As such, I'm not entirely sure how to review this one. I guess I'll just review it as its own novel in its own right.

It was pretty slow. I was hoping for more action as Locke worked undercover trying to figure shit out. Also I didn't like the ending. It seemed too abrupt.

Lol I don't really know what else to say

When I reviewed the second book in this series, I called it The Matrix Reloaded of the series. I may have gotten 50 pages into this and realized I still didn't care, that the books were so far gone from the great establishment of Adoration that I just put it down to pick up something else instead.

I think I'll always like The Adoration of Jenna Fox. Like The Matrix, though, I'll just pretend the sequels didn't happen.

I finally got to read this book!! Of course I had to re-read The Fox Inheritance so that I could refresh my memory and then i started reading this one. It is a great conclusion. I'm glad they continued to use Locke as the narrator. The story line was filled with mystery and suspense. Miesha, it turns out, could still have her husband and daughter alive. Locke is asked to help save her husband and he does- uncovering secrets along the way. Also, I liked that locke got a love interest, and that he ...more
This was an enjoyable read because I like the universe these stories are set in. It had been awhile since I read The Fox Inheritance (#2) and I had to remember what happened and who was who.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox was so good and I recommend it heartily; I don't feel these other two are necessary to read.
Now I wasn't originally planning on reading this one. With the way The Fox Inheritance ended, it left me feeling like this one wouldn't be as good as the others. Well, that was approximately two years ago. So since I love this series do much I finally decided to read the conclusion. Best decision ever.

Now I just know that if I start talking about ANYTHING that happened in this book I will break out until a hurricane of fangirliness and you won't know what hit you until you realize I just spoile
I was not that big of a fan of the original and this felt like a pale comparison of that. Both the science and the plotting seemed sloppy. The adventure is good and might have appealed to Reluctant readers, n
but theres not enough backstory and it doesnt stand alone.

I suppose I have always been enamored with story and character. My mother tells me I could be the most annoying little kid, waking up each day as a new character. Every morning she would have to ask me "who" I was for that day, because unless properly addressed I refused to answer anyone.

One time when I was about four years old, my parents were out shopping at Sears. They each thought the other h

“The world has changed. It’s gotten better. It’s gotten worse. After all these years, Jenna’s words still echo is my head, 'just as one problem is solved, a new one is created.' The work never ends. If there’s one thing you can always count on in this world, it is change. I don’t fear it the way I used to. I try to be read for it. One day, maybe, all the changes will be only for the good.
