But in this final book in the series, we were taken on a nostalgic trip where all of our beloved characters were allowed to quietly, sometimes irreverently, say their final goodbyes. And all with a minimum of genuine angst, but Bear was still just an it Well, I was not quite expecting that, but thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.
And all with a minimum of genuine angst, but Bear was still just an itty bit ' dramatical ', so well, you know Then for the remainder of the story, we got to witness the events leading up to and beyond the birth of Bear and Otter's children, then their family growing even larger, instead of simply adding their twins into the mix.
One thing that I loved about this story, aside from all of the humor, was that, for once, it wasn't just about Otter supporting Bear and Ty. Here, Bear finally realized that things can't always be about himself and Ty, which gave him the courage to give Otter something he'd always wanted.
An actual family of his own, with Bear. Basically, our beloved characters have all grown up, finally becoming the people they'd hoped they could someday be.
The family they were always meant to be. God, for this story to have basically been a happy one, despite the expected freak-outs, I finished it with an extremely heavy heart, since this was "The Last One" that I'd ever get for my beloved Bear, Otter and a Kid named Tyson.
I also finished it calling TJ a fucker for teasing me with the possibility of a really entertaining YA story that I'll likely never get to read. Ugh, why in God's name would he do that??? My angst over that is freaking tangible, people, let me tell you! As if there was ever any real doubt, this final BOATK story was yet another 5-star read for me, as I sadly, reluctantly close the book, but not my heart, on all of these amazing characters.
Although, I suppose, like many things, it was inevitable. View all 30 comments. A fantastic end to a fantastic series!! Suffice it to say, this was everything a finale should be. Sentimental, wistful, with plenty of affirmations in all the ways a reader or at least, myself wants when saying goodbye.
Though this series mostly centers on brothers Bear and the Kid and their deep bond that was forged from hellish tr 5 Glorious Stars!! Though this series mostly centers on brothers Bear and the Kid and their deep bond that was forged from hellish trials and painful milestones, it also focuses on their own personal love relationships and all the people they call family. What will always stand out the most for me though, is Otter.
Oh Otter. Let me count the many many ways I love you so hard. This man has it all and everything about him - physically, emotionally - everything made me swoon!! But I digress. I laughed. I cried. I laughed while crying and cried while laughing.
He has left me wanting and that is the best indicator of how great this series is. So much applause and wonder and gratitude. Thank you for this amazing journey, its unforgettable characters, and a love that I rank as one of the rare epic stories that has moved and branded itself on me so I won't soon forget!

I know plenty of people want to read this awesome book and I don't want to ruin things for them. The past, the present, and future. Now don't worry about the past parts, it's not like a re-read of the other books.
It actually explains things that happened in "The art of Breathing", from Bear's pov. There are so many things we didn't weren't aware of. It was very enlighting, to be honest, and for me, it also put Ty's book in a very different perspective. It's a book about love and family and friends and those friends were all very present.
Damn but I love Creed, he always knows how to lighten things up and he may not be the most responsible father But he damn sure is the coolest and funniest. But they were mostly happy ones. I can honestly say that TJ has made this goodbye perfect and kept the angst on the down low. That's not to say it wasn't emotional at times TJ gave me the closure I needed and for this, I am very thankful. I am not saying goodbye though We have loved. We have lost.
Sep 22, PM. Kat Valentine Fantabulous review Wendy! What a great conclusion! The pacing was a bit off, there were some slow bits and that's why a 3. But lots of great moments with all the feels and I am so glad TJ Klune took us on this journey.
This final story was everything I wanted in a goodbye. I laughed and I cried, but thankfully most of the tears were brought on by nostalgia and new moments of pure happiness. I feel like I can't mention a damn thing about this story without ruining its magic for future readers. So I'll stick to saying that I couldn't be more satisfied with this series finale, and that Bear, Otter and The Kid, along with all the kooky and lovable characters that round o 5 Stars Now that's how you wrap up a series!
So I'll stick to saying that I couldn't be more satisfied with this series finale, and that Bear, Otter and The Kid, along with all the kooky and lovable characters that round out their family and friends, will always hold a special little place in my heart.

The Past is a lovingly done recap of the series , including explaining the events that lead up to The Art of Breathing. While Bear and Otter are the focus of this story, and it's from Bear's often hilarious point of view, you must remember Bear and Otter would not be "Bear and Otter" without their family.
Without Tyson the Kid , Mrs. They're all here. Ma Do you remember how it all began? Maybe only in memory and in the heart, but always there. Just like the love Bear and Otter have for one another. Life can turn on a dime. Or if you just want to stay at home and make out on the couch, we can do that too. What you want is important to me, Bear. And you can tell me, always. Never forget that.
For everything. We always have, even before we were us. There was something there, something arcing between us like lightning, always crawling along our skin. And we pushed and pulled, clawing our way to each other. But we fit. Just like we do now. God, how it turns on a fucking dime. And it can surprise the hell out of you.
There is a lot packed into this but it never feels like the words were written as filler. Every part, every conversation, every meltdown all felt organic and necessary to the story. We have lived. We have loved with every single beat of our hearts, and we have fucking earned this. There's humor here, because of course there is, this is TJ Klune after all. Company Credits. Technical Specs.

That's what Sigeric the Serious, a 10th-century Archbishop of Canterbury, did when he set off on foot to St Peter's in the Vatican to be consecrated by the pope. Luckily for the pilgrims who followed over the centuries, he made a note of his return journey, putting flesh on the bones of what was called the Via Francigena.
I was walking the final section of it — from Orvieto in Umbria to Rome — on a nine-day walking holiday launched last summer by Headwater. It takes hikers through some of the least touristy parts of Italy, past Etruscan settlements, volcanic lakes, majestic hilltop towns and blissfully empty landscapes of olive groves, oak forests and flower-filled meadows.
The holiday doesn't stick slavishly to Sigeric's route and at times has to cheat a bit you try walking into Rome on the motorways that have since sprung up , but it does make you wonder why the Via Francigena's popularity has waned while the pilgrims' route to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain has soared. Elegant, hilltop Orvieto was a delightful place to start the first 16km walk, even if it wasn't strictly on the Via Francigena.
But within a couple of kilometres after descending from the town, I spotted the first red-and-white drawing of a man with a suitably medieval pageboy haircut, rucksack and staff. Newer markers are daringly modern; they even include a female figure. Fields of gently waving wheat and bright-red poppies flanked quiet tracks, and a sheep farmer obligingly created a classic bucolic scene by bringing his flock into the road. At about the time I crossed an invisible border from Umbria into Lazio three hours later, I could see in the distance Lake Bolsena, the largest volcanic lake in Europe.
I walked past tiny houses built into giant lava cliffs on the road to the attractive town of Bolsena, with its medieval quarter and black-sand beach. Serene views of the lake came with my dinner of buttery coregone freshwater fish at the Loriana Park Hotel, run by friendly sisters Antonella and Bianca.May 18, · Directed by Andy Cadiff.
