Product description

Review

Ness brilliantly plays with contrasts: life and death, privacy and exposure, guilt and innocence. In characteristic style, the author of the Chaos Walking trilogy delves into the stuff of nightmares for an existential exploration of the human psyche.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Books are often described as 'mind-blowing, ' but this is one of the few books in which, while reading it, I have exclaimed aloud, 'Oh. My. God.' on multiple occasions. I won't tell you anything else about it. Just read it.
--John Green

It is a gorgeous story with masterful pacing and unforgettable passages.
--The Boston Globe

This haunting and consistently surprising novel raises deep questions about what it means to be alive, but it doesn't try to console readers with easy or pat answers. ... . A delicate balance between dystopian survival and philosophical grappling means that many different kinds of readers should appreciate the story.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

Ness brilliantly plays with contrasts: life and death, privacy and exposure, guilt and innocence. In characteristic style, the author of the Chaos Walking trilogy delves into the stuff of nightmares for an existential exploration of the human psyche.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Compulsively readable... It is a very compelling, multidimensional story.
--Library Media Connection

Ness' knack for cliff-hangers, honed in the Chaos Walking series, remains strong, while the spare, gradual, anytime, anyplace quality of the story recalls A Monster Calls... Ness has crafted something stark and uncompromising.
--Booklist

This complex, genrebending book opens with Seth's violent drowning death at sea, described in such spare but devastating detail that readers may feel themselves gasping for a breath as Seth draws his last. ... Ness subverts familiar sci-fi/survival tropes and storytelling conventions, leaving readers with an ambiguous ending... The thematic explorations of the nature of reality and the afterlife offer some heady discussion fodder, while the nail-biting tension and high-stakes action sequences make this an easy sell to the legions of dystopia fans as well.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Ness leads readers on an adventure into a world that astounds and amazes. ... Ness captures the mind of a teenager perfectly. It is a fast-paced journey that even reluctant readers will pursue...
--VOYA

Ness is not only a good storyteller but an interesting prose stylist, and his latest effort is as provocative as ever.
--The Horn Book

Books are often described as 'mind-blowing, ' but this is one of the few books in which, while reading it, I have exclaimed aloud, 'Oh. My. God.' on multiple occasions. I won't tell you anything else about it. Just read it.
--John Green

It is a gorgeous story with masterful pacing and unforgettable passages.
--The Boston Globe

At times, More Than This is like a literary experiment that only by the grace and dedication of its creator resulted in a novel proper, but in the hands of a poised, perfectionist prose-smith like Patrick Ness, it's rarely less than life-affirming. ... The author's newest novel is riveting, edge-of-your-reading-seat stuff from beginning to end.
--Tor.com

Artsy, creepy, and full of psychological suspense... Ness specializes in writing post-apocalyptic worlds where things are rarely as they seem. ... The dizzying ending brings the characters to the narrow edge between inevitable outcomes and hope for second chances -- and challenges readers to form their own conclusions.
--BookPage

[A] YA game-changer. It's provocative and philosophical, sweet and darkly funny, and destined to be discussed and debated. And there's not a vampire or a zombie lurking anywhere in its dystopian landscape.
--Minneapolis Star Tribune --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"[Ness has] outdone himself ... a terrific exemplar of the eternal teenage desire for there to be, in the words of the novel's title, "more than this" – more than a world in which prejudice and hypocrisy dictate how people should or shouldn't live their lives." (The Guardian) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
