This review is from: The Ask and the Answer (Chaos Walking) (Hardcover)
If you loved The Knife of Never Letting Go: bk. 1 (Chaos Walking), you won't be disappointed with The Ask and The Answer. It's just as brutal and uncompromising as the first in the Chaos Walking series, just as gripping, and now I'm left howling for book three! When's it coming out, Mr Ness?
Todd tries to hold onto his values as the Mayor manipulates and schemes and strips away those things that anchor Todd to his humanity. Once again, Ness isn't afraid to tackle big themes: war crime, terrorism, genocide, loyalty and love.
I don't want to say more for fear of spoiling it for anyone. Let's just say my nails are bitten down to the quick, the adrenaline is still flowing, and I'm even more in awe of Ness's storytelling skills.
