Plato's Republic Among the City's children was Pytheas secretly the god Apollo in human formSixty years ago the Just City schismed into five cities each devoted to a different version of the original visionForty years ago the five cities managed to bring their suabbles to a close But in conseuence of their struggle their existence finally came to the attention of Zeus who can't allow them to remain in deep antiuity changing the course of hu. This is a really beautifully told trilogy and the trilogy I’m giving 5 stars It starts sort of slowly and without much action in The Just City but ends on a high note with what is known as The Last Debate It gives the reader lots of philosophical uestions to consider The action in The Philosopher Kings increases overall but there are still plenty of philosophical uestions to chew onWe end here with Necessity which gives us almost nothing philosophical to consider yet provides us with plenty of laugh out loud entertainment and an excellent conclusion to the overall storyWe get to meet some new characters and we are reacuainted with some old ones Apollo is our constant of course Then we have Crocus who finally gets to tell us his side of the story I wasn’t head over heels in love with Crocus’s story even though I adore him as a character he just seemed disconnected from the action this go around The same is true for our other POV character Jason He’s not a bad character but he is a third party observer He really has very little to do overall with the main plot lines of the book or the trilogy I found myself uestioning Walton’s choice to include them as POVs Lastly we have Marsilia Simmea’s granddaughter Her chapters were my favorite to read The dynamics between her and her sister Thetis were very well done Each having or being something the other sort of maybe desired but always ultimately loving to each otherSo what was it that held this back from being a 5 Star read Well like I mentioned I didn’t feel like two of the POVs were all that relevant I wasn’t sure why we were being fed those stories Crocus’s were sparse enough and gave enough insight to his part in the past 2 books that I didn’t mind their inclusion but I really just felt like Jason was an odd choice He even says at one point I have no idea why I’m here Well Jason I don’t know either Don’t get me wrong I didn’t dislike him and I thought he was a well done character but it was like he was included for the sake of having a narratorThe second reason this wasn’t uite a 5 Star read was that the chapters are told “out of time” We already know what’s happening or what to expect and then we cut to Marsilia who’s doing something with Hermes that earlier in the story seemed as if it was already done It was just sort of confusing and jarring to followEverything else I loved The ending turned me into a crying mess because these characters just grew on me so much through out the trilogy These are fantastic uick books that I would highly recommend to fans of both fantasy and science fiction as it started in what felt like fantasy and ended firmly in the science fiction department

NecessityNecessity the seuel to the acclaimed The Just City and The Philosopher Kings Jo Walton's tales of gods humans and what they have to learn from one anotherMore than sixty five years ago Pallas Athena founded the Just City on an island in the eastern Mediterranean placing it centuries before the Trojan War populating it with teachers and children from throughout human history and committing it to building a society based on the principles of. This was a great albeit unexpected ending The book or less begins with an event that is set up like it will be the center piece of the book but then it just never happens Instead our beloved characters go on a scavenger hunt to find Athena who managed to get herself lost outside of timeIf I now think about it this makes for an uneven pacing of the story But while I was listening to it I didn’t even register that fact The tone is much jauntily than in the first two books with a lot of humorous comments that provided an easy feeling The principle of Plato’s republic is extended to outer space and we meet alien gods with their own agenda While everything is on the crazy side there still is the beautiful philosophical musing I so love in this series The POVs of Crocus provide an outside view on Plato’s premises which I enjoyed a lot Walton managed to write them in the spirit of the philospher And in the end the uestion is answered if it is possible to live the perfect Just CityJo Walton’s Thessaly trilogy is an ambitious untertaking to incorporate Plato’s work into a Fantasy novel For me she succeeded masterfully here I’m only a layman where Greek philosphy is concerned but on this level it totally worked This trilogy gave me much to think about and made it clear that I crave philosophy in my FantasySFNow I have to try to find out if Walton wrote the poem with which one chapter starts herself or if it was a uote since I listened to the audiobook I didn’t see any possible comments hereof It was beautiful and reminded me of my favourite Byron poem
