Review: Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness

Monsters of Men (Chaos Walking, #3)Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW! That is a HUMDINGER of an ending! Where does Patrick Ness come up with this stuff? This is a wild and troubled ride with bits of cruelty and bits of beauty and humanity thrown in. There is nothing to say and everything to say. Suffice it to say that you won't be sorry you read this one. It gets a little slow in parts and the lengthy battle at the beginning is a bit of a snoozer, but the book is still amazing. The way that the author weaves this story is so impressive and original. I could spend a bunch of time analyzing this book, making comparisons with world leaders, with religion with the struggle between good and evil if I wanted to. It would be a splendid read for a book club. Loved it, shocked by it and changed by the ideas in it. Extremely impressed by this author, I will be looking forward to what he does next.
