Actual rating 3.5 stars. This book had a few more ups and downs than the first two. Not sure it needed to be a trilogy but that being said, I think this series is really great. It makes you stop and think. It is smart and a great science fiction read!

Fox Forever is the end of a quite unique futuristic series. I had my ups and downs with this trilogy. I loved the first book - which can be read as a standalone the sequels follow a different character and take place long long time after the events of book one. I wished book two could've focused on (view spoiler) And I ...more

The ending tugged at my heartstrings. I feel like I've been through a whirlwind with these characters. It was so nicely wrapped up. The technologies described are so creative. Loved hearing about how everything in the future worked!

4.5 stars. This is weirdly enough probably my favorite book of the Jenna Fox trilogy. Yeah, the second book is relatively crappy, but this third book is fucking awesome.

Alternate Title: The Adoration of Mary E. Pearson's character work

Locke is a complicated character. One of his better traits is how much he wants to be better. He yearns to be a better person and feel like he's justified in living on this earth. It's so believable and it works for his situation, where he's not eve

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

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

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

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

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.

This was an interesting book. I don't want to give anything away, but each book was very different, the last two going together more than the first. The closest thing I can compare it to is the Giver series, although those books connected even less to each other until the ending. It was a really interesting concept though, very sci-fi and futuristic. I liked the characters a lot. And especially towards the end it kept me on the edge of my seat, I was anxious to see how everything was going to co ...more

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.

So, I guess I should read the 2nd book before this one comes out :)

This was the culmination of the entire series. Each book takes a huge turn on the tote of book you're reading. The two books really build up for this last one. This one is filled with mystery, action, suspense, and romance. Loved it. The ending was amazing. Such an awesome story.

"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

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

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

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

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 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

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.
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
