Book 1: intriguing! Book 2: Zzzz. Book 3: WTF!

This series starts off like "Lost" - mysterious place with lots of questions.
Book 2 is a slog. It's all inter-company squabbles of the Dharma Initiative.
Book 3 is decent with some action. A bit dreamy and weird and hard to follow but the answers are coming right? And then it ends so abruptly I actually yelled "WTF!" at my car stereo. If you want a great start that then will waste hours going absolutely nowhere... Area X is it.

Crazy weird masterpiece

Scientist soldiers battle giant aliens and each other at the edge of our imperiled world and ecosystem in the southern reach. A thriller that works its way backwards from cataclysmic events to reveal the seeds of destruction and subterfuge caused by corrupt, ambitious scientists and government officials and the emotional drama of a cadre of fighters who try to outwit the enemy and share what it feels like to fight for the tiny shards and moments of goodness of humanity while losing the battle amidst hopeless odds and surreal light show physics.
