Review

breathtaking...innovative, intense writing at its incendiary best -- Jake Hope The Bookseller The novels would seem sledgehammer-bleak if not for the narrative drive and uncompromising humanity that underpins every word in every line. Chaos Walking is too good for the Young Adult strapline. Like Philip Pullman, Robert Cormier and Paul Zindel, Ness has written the best kind of children's book - the kind that teaches you how to grow up. -- Max Dunbar 3 Am Magazine Monsters of Men combines gripping storylines with real moral quandaries...Ness integrates the vast and powerful themes into the plot so seamlessly that they appear effortless. This is a rare and remarkable achievement. Monsters of Men is a near perfect conclusion to a near perfect trilogy. http://vulpeslibris.wordpress.com Monsters of Men is nothing if not action-filled, and makes for a frenetic, dramatic conclusion to one of the finest Young Adult dystopian/science fiction series' out there...this final novel is a beautiful, fitting send off to a truly superior series. And...I'm really sad to see it go, but at the same time, I think it ended perfectly. Absolutely recommended to readers of all ages and preferences. The Book Smugglers Lives up to all expectations...An electrifying ending to a brilliant series. Daily Express outstanding The Bookseller featured/recommended Press Democrat Newspaper featured/recommended The Republican Newspaper featured/recommended The Post and Courier Newspaper featured/recommended El Paso Times Newspaper Chaos walking trilogy Featured/recommended Raintaxi.com Featured/recommended Shelfari Blog Monsters of Men is an extraordinary achievement.

When I started this series I thought it was a little strange and not my type of book, but now I have to say I'm totally engrossed in the people and the story, I literally gasped out loud the other day while reading it! What a creative style of writing and wonderful characters this book has!!

As with books 1 and 2, Chaos Walking Book 3 was amazing. Fast paced and a rollercoaster ride, the journey of Viola and Todd continue to hold my attention. Monsters of Men introduces a new, exciting and volatile character that will shock you, brings back characters you thought had left and generally keeps you guessing at every turn. Don't trust ANYONE! You won't know the end until the end. Even then, do we really know?

Although this is being promoted as a "teen" book, it appeals to everyone. It is a social commentary on information and how we are dealing with it; how access to information can be a powerful tool and a destructive one if used the wrong way. Honestly - this series should be studied at the university level.

MONSTERS OF MEN is the wonderful conclusion to the CHAOS WALKING trilogy. It picks up where THE ASK AND THE ANSWER leaves off - right at the beginning of WAR!

The Spackle, the Answer, and the Mayor's army are all converging on New Prentisstown - and Todd and Viola are stuck in the middle.

Patrick Ness creates the same heart-pounding suspense in this novel as he did in the first two books. Multiple points of view give the reader a full understanding of what is happening.

Be sure to set aside a block of time when you start this book - or the first two, for that matter. Once I started, I didn't want to stop. I was so worried for Viola and Todd throughout the story. I was stressed and cringed as I got further into the story - afraid for what the author had in store for them.

Mr. Ness made me growl in frustration and brought me to tears. MONSTERS OF MEN ended perfectly!

Felt more like a direct continuation to THE ASK AND THE ANSWER, so reading them back-to-back worked perfectly. Read this in one sitting on a long car ride. So many twists! I am glad that Viola's perspective was included in this book, as in the second, and it was also really interesting to see a third perspective added in.

This whole series really makes you think. I mean, these people come to a new planet to start a new life, but they make the same effing (heh) mistakes that they always had on the first planet. The books show just how hard it is, once you've began the cycle of violence, to put an end to it, to find peace again. And yes, these books take place far in the future on a planet with two moons but they are so REAL and so BELIEVABLE.

And the Spackle! Wouldn't it be so like us, even today, to find an alien species and assume we are better, stronger, and take their land like we own it?

SO MUCH THINKING FROM THESE BOOKS.

Also let me just say how great it is that in this future both heterosexual and homosexual relationships are simply accepted, in both humans and aliens. No big deal. Also, how beautiful is the phrase my one in particular?

Sorry for this completely incoherent review. There is just so much to say, and so little effective ways to say it.

Glad I was able to read it all in one go, as it is so fast-paced I cannot imagine ever putting it down. Terrifying, just like the first two. Patrick Ness is such an amazing writer. I want to get my hands on everything he has written, and everything he writes in the future. Though I do doubt that anything will affect me quite like this gem of a trilogy.
