The mind-bending conclusion to the Twinmaker trilogy.


Clair’s world has been destroyed – again. The only remaining hope of survival is for her and Q to enter the Yard, a simulation as detailed – and as real – as the home they have lost. But in the Yard there are two Clair Hills. The other Clair is headstrong, impulsive, suspicious – just like Clair herself used to be, and t

Here's the plot: Clair lives in a world not so different from our own but revolutionised by d-mat, a global teleport system that allows people to transport themselves instantaneously around the world. When she discovers that her best friend Libby has disappeared after having herself 'Improved' in transit to enhance her appearance, Clair is shocked - Improvement is highly illegal, and there are rumours of side-effects that have led to a spate of teen suicides. After enlisting the help of Jesse, a freaky Abstainer who has never d-matted in his life, and the mysterious Q who befriends Clair online, Clair goes in search of Libby and finds herself caught up in a desperate chase across the country, trying to stay one step ahead of the dangerous mastermind who has taken control of d-mat - and of Libby.

“You’re still the girl who killed d-mat. We’re not giving up on you just yet.”

This was probably my least favourite book of this series, as I got quite confused as to what was going on.

Claire went above and beyond the call of duty in this book, not only did she have to contend with duplicates of herself, but she even went to extreme lengths to change her own appearance to p

The Twinmaker series has been an incredibly unique world, lovingly created to keep readers on their toes and Fall is a worthy finale. But not without it's issues. Clair is back and out of favour with those around her, with most not able to trust the girl who destroyed the world. Although lost, she's determined to make a difference and leave behind a legacy so society can rebuild. The only respite lives with a virtual world simply known as The Yar

A stunning epic conclusion to a mind-blowing adventure about what it means to be human. - Abooktopia

Fall was a great wrap to the Twinmaker trilogy as it was action packed, taking on a new view point from not one, but multiple Clairs. I love how each Clair was slightly different and unique in their own ways due to their experiences, and past selves. Each character was amazingly complex with their own motivations, creating an intriguing conflict between them.

This review contains spoilers for the previous books in the series.

Fall, otherwise known as Hollowgirl, is the third and final book in the Twinmaker series by Aussie author Sean Williams.

In Jump (Twinmaker) and Crash (Crashland), we have been taken on a journey of d-mat, fabbers, abstainers, artificial intelligence, lost friends, unlikely alliances, betrayal, unknown loyalties, mistakes, dedication and disaster – and Fall (Hollowgirl) completes the story with all of this, plus even more twists,

Fall by Sean Williams (also called Hollowgirl in the US) is the final book in the YA science fiction Twinmaker trilogy. It follows on from Jump and Crash. Because of certain crucial events at the end of book two, which set up the premise for book three, this review, including the blurb, will contain some spoilers of the earlier books.

HUGE thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy for review!

I. LOVE. THESE. BOOKS!

I read Twinmaker back when it first came out and LOVED it. Then I read Crashland and while I really enjoyed it, I remember being confused about some things that I'd forgotten from Twinmaker. So when I got a copy of this book I knew that I was going to be even MORE confused because I'd forgotten so much from the first book... so I did a re-read. I almost NEVER do this, and I am SO glad that I did. I HIGHLY reco

Interesting ending to a fast-paced, exciting trilogy.

You may wonder why i chose the word "interesting" to describe the ending to the Twinmaker trilogy. Well, to be honest, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the ending. The first two books were filled with so much fast-paced and deadly action that I was completely enthralled with the world Clair was living in and the dangers she had exposed with the ever-so-popular but controversial DMat, however, this book went in a completely strange and in

'Fall' is the final novel in the 'Twinmaker' series and one that I didn't mind reading but it seemed to blend in with the heaps of other sci-fi novels out there. The characters were well developed but they all seemed to be unable to hold their own in attitude and personality. The plot was also overused and I felt as if it could have been better. This was supposed to be the novel that changed my mind about the whole series - I gave books 1 and 2 three stars as well - but it unfortunately didn't. ...more

Brilliant end to a wonderful book series. While book 2 was slower in pace, this one is full of constant action from not one but multiple Clairs! Do you ever groan thinking about your past selves? Well imagine having to actually work with one who doesn't believe she could ever turn into someone like YOU. That's the crux of Hollow Girl (or Fall if you prefer). The characters are amazingly complex in their motivations and it makes for massive conflict (as the end of the world would!) and nail-bitin ...more

Disclaimer; my last review I said the series was almost unflawable but whilst writing the review I was part way reading the final book to this series. To authors there is a time where enough is enough and you don't have to do a third edition in the series. I think authors have it in their heads that you have to write at least three book, when you don't!! This is a classic example of dragging a book out for to long and considering I try to finish every book I read this was disappointing and unbea ...more

I understand that the author wanted to make a grand point about the ethics of teleportation and humanity or whatever. However, I don't think he executed it very well. I found the world-building, the rules of the world, and the characters' motivations to be super inconsistent and confusing, and it was pretty frustrating to read because I think there was a good story in there somewhere. Too bad I couldn't find it among the confusing writing.

Great ending! I really enjoyed how they wrapped up the series, and how they wrapped everything up. It did get confusing having multiple Clair's if I didn't pay attention at the beginning of the chapter to who's point of view it was, but it was otherwise very well written.

It was just so confusing.

This was a stunning conclusion to a really addictive trilogy that I've been anticipating forever.

I had read Twinmaker and Crashlander almost a year ago, and as they weren't available at my library, I didn't have a chance to reread them before Hollowgirl came out. As such, I had forgotten a lot of what had happened, and it took me a few chapters of this book to orient myself to what was going on and what a lot of the terms referred to. The main thing I remembered was that I had been insanely angr

I am still trying to get into this one. I'm not flat out DNFing it, but I'm stopping for now. No need to keep trying to read this, only to be partly interested in the story. The characters are all confusing, as you don't know whom is speaking. It's too complex. I'd blame my confusion on this world that I know nothing about, but I doubt even the ones who have read the other books can keep up with this. So, no, I'm not gonna put it on my DNF shelf just yet.
Lena
For sure, the best book of the series. Dynamic, a full paced plot, and a confusing yet understandable narrative voice of the Clairs was great to read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought that the ending was satisfying, and Q's resolution was a good one. The betrayals and revelations also proved to be amazing plot twists, and ones that I definitely did not see coming. I'm pleased that I persevered the series - Hollowgirl was worth it.

A great way to wrap up the trilogy. This one was much more thoughtful than the others, deeper, and so it took me longer to get through. I think it might be challenging for young adults, in a good way. The author did a great job in the final few chapters covering some difficult viewpoints and moral decisions.
Jedimentat
This one was titled "Hollow Girl," not "Fall," so maybe it's another edition or the title in the US. I liked some parts, and sort of wandered off, attention-wise, in others. It's ok, not as strong as the first two, but I guess the series needed an ending.
