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.
I really enjoyed this book. A great conclusion to the Chaos Walking Trilogy.
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.
#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.
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.
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
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 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.
I finally finished the Chaos Walking series! I think the last book was the best one of the series. So much happens and a lot of unexpected twists and turns! I am not sure I loooooved the ending but everything leading up to it is really good. What a story! I would recommend this series. I can't wait for the movie! #catsoflitsy #LitsyAtoZ #LetterM #BookChallenge
"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
