The riveting Chaos Walking trilogy by two-time Carnegie Medalist Patrick Ness.
“Grim and beautifully written.... Superb.... This is among the best YA science fiction novels of the year.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
Reaching the end of their flight in The Knife of Never Letting Go, Todd and Viola did not find healing and hope in Haven. They found instead their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss, waiting to welcome them to New Prentisstown. There they are forced into separate lives: Todd to prison, and Viola to a house of healing where her wounds are treated. Soon Viola is swept into the ruthless activities of the Answer, while Todd faces impossible choices when forced to join the mayor’s oppressive new regime. In alternating narratives the two struggle to reconcile their own dubious actions with their deepest beliefs. Torn by confusion and compromise, suspicion and betrayal, can their trust in each other possibly survive?
The Ask and the Answer
I love this book so much I bought the audio book even though I've read it before. The voice actors do a great job and the quality of the recording is also very good. This story is so engrossing and powerful that I could do little else when I read the series. I feel as though I KNOW these people. The main characters are flawed and wonderful and naive (at first) and they grow and mature right on the pages.Even the "bad guys" are multi dimensional and human. This story is set on a different planet and still it feels more real than most other books I've read lately!
Such a great book love it
