Monsters of Men
Monsters of Men | Patrick Ness
Three armies march on New Prentisstown, each one intent on destroying the others. Todd and Viola are caught in the middle, with no chance of escape. As the battles commence, how can they hope to stop the fighting? How can there ever be peace when they're so hopelessly outnumbered?

The conclusion of this trilogy is -full- of enemies, some that you can find common ground with (like in The Enemy) and some you cannot.

Ness brings his trilogy to a triumphant conclusion, with another POV voice (a Spackle, no less!) to add to those of Todd and Viola. Some profound meditations on the themes of war, terrorism, and colonialism underlying what is a helluva story that barely lets up for a moment.
YA fantasy dystopia be blowed, this has some of the best descriptions of BATTLE I've ever read. Wonderful.

Addison_Reads I just finished the first two in this series and loved them. I'm waiting on my hold to come through at the library for this one. Such a well done series so far. I'm excited to finish it. 6mo

So far so good. I still think the first book will have been the best and most gripping but I suspect this will be 2nd best.

#BookMail Pt3 today is the third & final book in the Chaos Walking trilogy by Ness. Another 10th anniversary edition, it has the same sprayed edges and black on black embossing as the first two. All 3 are also signed by the author so at just $12.75AU they‘re a steal! Unfortunately Booktopia.com.au does not ship internationally at this time, so any fellow Aussie littens out there looking for a bargain, they still have copies available.

emmaturi love this series! I still have the last to read! 1y

Started listening to the final book in the excellent Chaos Walking Trilogy. This will be my commute book for the new working week. Looking forward to seeing how this trilogy concludes and what is in store for Todd and Viola.

It wasn‘t the prose. Besides the slang I still find annoying, the writing was just as strong as ever. I still love Todd and Viola just as much as in the first books. And it wasn‘t the fact that Patrick Ness is basically an expert at breaking my heart and crushing my feelings either. I had one big problem with Monsters Of Men: ‘The Return‘ and his newly introduced POV.

3/5 stars

The best series so far for this year! And this monsters of men is just!!!! Gaaah!!! I love how deep the characters develop here, patrick ness is just awesome! Usually i hate too much point of view because it's confusing but this one is exceptional! They complete each other just perfectly! Super recommend this one, go read it!

This was better than the two previous books, but I still struggled to get through it. I felt kind of let down by the ending. It fell a little flat for me. Other people seemed to have enjoyed it though. Maybe I've read too many dystopia books recently and I'm burnt out! I would recommend other series first, but I don't hate this one. #kindle #ebook #chaoswalking

I just now signed up for #deweys24hourreadathon (which starts in 7 hours). I think there will definitely be some sleeping tomorrow but I'll do my best. I get to start by reading the last 15% or so of Monsters of Men, so I'll feel like I've really made progress.

This was such a great ending to a great trilogy. Each book was just as good as the last. I already already miss Viola and Todd. Any book that can make me tear up over a horse is a winner in my book. I highly recommend these books.

This book alone, although fiction placed upon a distant world, did more to help me understand the machine of war than anything I have ever read of been taught in my 40 years. Men fight because they are empty. We kill, we destroy, to silence that emptiness. But there is another way. There is and the book helps lay the path for learning it.

This book is so fucking good. I wasn't super enamored with the first book, but it was solid enough that I kept going. And I'm so glad I did. Each book got better, and this one blew me away. This series tackles some heavy topics and does so splendidly.

#FunFridayPhoto A book I've read over 500 pages! I've read quite a few, but one of my more recent reads that I really enjoyed is Book 3 in the Chaos Walking trilogy. Love the dystopian vibe! (Really I love anything by Patrick Ness...)

This left me emotionally shaking, breathless, and temporarily blinded from tears.

There's so much pressure on conclusions. As a character on a favorite tv show of mine says: "Endings are hard." But Ness did it exceedingly well.

I never quite knew what was going to happen next, how it was all going to play out, who was going to make it, or if I was even going to make it. But I did. And came out for the better.

This was absolutely stunning.

"It would show we could choose not to kill even when we had reason to do so. It would be a powerful gesture." ~ TS #stopwars #uglycry #chaoswalking || It has a subdued (less gory, less, but still gory) Game of Thrones kill-them-all vibes which might have caused me to want to throw the book at the wall several times. But somehow the seemingly Stranger Things-ish feel keeps it stuck to my hands. #jedimindtricks #ilovethisseries
