(Pdf/E–book) The Ask and the Answer
Okay so i loved the knife of never letting o but this one
Was Somehow Even Betteroh somehow even betteroh i am afraid i am just Bara No Tame Ni: 5 going to write aushing fangirl review here does anyone mindi will try to avoid saying anything too specific because this book is such a Lebanon gem i want everyone to sort of discover its folds and depths for themselvesbecause there is areat deal of depth up in herethe action of this book takes place after a colossal thing happens which separates viola and todd and this book is a split narrative between the two of them as they are pursuing their individual paths to selfhood under extreme duress and uncertaintyvague rightbut it is so well handled ness can actually write viola and todd sound like two different characters and fully developed characters with insights and psychologies all their own at that and i love them both so much fangirl sueee the scope of the book has widened the first book starts out as a sort of smalltown pastoral with creepy dark religiouscultish overtones while this one expands to re emphasize the earlier themes of colonialism and clannishness but to build upon those themes with the politics of war and love and betrayal and sacrifice oh the sacrifices and helplessness and Clarkesworld (Clarkesworld Anthology, growth and trust and just all of it all leading up to the most amazing cliffhanger of tolkien esue proportionsit made my heado aaaahhhhhhthe best moments in these books are the small revelations the tiny realizations not even the big ame changing events although those are phenomenal but as viola and todd are separately coached under uestionable authority figures which are shaping their character but still managing to retain their individual sparks that make them such strong characters and while trying so hard just to et back to each other the tiny reveals that pepper this story as they bildungs their roman are Facing Redemption genuinely surprising and so devastating shiverybecause they spend most of this novel apart this becomes a novel about faith faith in the beloved other because while technically not a YA romance because there isn t any kissing it has the perfect shape to become one the first book is spent fighting together towards a commonoal learning each others strengths and weaknesses making sacrifices sob to protect the Other comforting each other and never letting the other lose hope or ive upit is a perfect foundationthis chapter has them apart developing their own personal codes in the middle of this new situation and creating a sort of armor around themselves to protect themselves from outside influence to keep the faith in the other safe until they can be together again which adds the layer of independence so fundamental to a successful romance none of this twilight self sacrifice twaddleit s just orgeous i hate the things that happen to todd throughout as he struggles to balance his humanity while iving up portions of it just to stay alive and although viola s situation seems less dangerous on the surface it is only adroitly manipulated and so her ultimate realizationbetrayal is even powerful for itaaahhhhhthere is too much in this book and it is all in my hearti am trying to read the third book really slowly so i never have to leave this worldthere are probably useful reviews out there this is just be babbling don t let me slow you down on your path to this book o

hope there is lots action and intensity in the final installment It s 45 stars Not perfect 5 stars because the first part was a little slow and boring for me but THEN the final chapters were so awesome and full of twists and turns and UGHHH Patrick Ness just loves to kill the characters I likeAnyway this book was so much better than the first one I think that s because weet to know not

"Me Furious And Scares Me "furious and scares me death Chaos Walking is the kind of story where every character is evil and corrupted in their own way and you re at a loss for someone to likesupport To make things worse the main characters are children thrust into and twisted by a cruel world driven to horrible acts by horrible circumstances Through Ness uniue writing style the reader can follow along right in Todd s head and it all feels a little to close and real for comfortThis series really shook me and I think I need a little time before I can finish the last installment This review and other non spoilery reviews can be found The Book Prescription In this

developed and I expected the change in some characters which was awesome andand I expected the change in some characters which was awesome and Every one were talking about the plot twists in this book I saw most of them before they happened and specially at the ending I was like what if this and that happened that would be terrific and Street Without a Name: Childhood and Other Misadventures in Bulgaria guess what It did happen I liked how this was much darker than book 1 and some of the scenes wereraphic so beware I don t think it is a suitable book for younger children I discovered lately that I really love darker reads just because they are realistic the real world is not sunshine and flowers The world also expanded and I think we are Running from Strangers getting of it in the next book Summary The Ask and the Answer was as almost asood as book 1 if you liked book 1 then the series is definitely worth continuing It was slower paced darker and twisted The story is balanced and I can t wait to know how it end.

S of enocide war ethics torture and holding onto one s identity under pressure All issues are interesting but I find myself surprisingly uninterested in them mainly because in this book I am strangely detached from Todd and Viola In these tough circumstances they are nothing than naive petulant children used as pawns in various evil plans They are described as so strongly attached that they are willing to do almost anything for one another and yet they are so easily led to mistrust each otherThis mistrust constantly ets them and people around them in trouble it s painful to read I think pretty much in this book you simply can t find even one likable person Todd is the one I dislike the most at this point No matter how hard the author tries to make us believe that Todd still holds on to his innocence and thus is better than everybody else it s pretty hard to swallow when you know what Todd has done for no If It’s Monday It Must Be Madurai: A Conducted Tour of India good reason other than his dearirlfriend left himIn addition there are the same plot holes as in the first book I still don t understand the specialness of Todd there is still a lot of build up and allusions to various secrets that end up being not that interesting or importantI have to Maker Lab: 28 Super Cool Projects give Ness some credit for skillfully creating an atmosphere of urgency in his books and showing that nobody is truly innocent in war but unfortunately this just isn t enough for me Gray shades arereat in theory but I would like to see some clearer morality in my books especially in the books written for young adults I find that at this point the only side I would want to succeed in the story is Spackle Not sure if Ness meant it this way thoughReading challenge 1 N This trilogy is so freaking brutal I m just sitting here trying to convince my heart to keep on I am so stressed Read books they said It ll be fun they said Well I am so stressed I really love that this had no sniff of seuel blues though despite beingya know blue as a book itself I do think it was a bit long and the tedium of Viola s and Todd s separate work situations could ve been faster but other wise WOW I M OBSESSEDTHINGS IN PARTICULARLY I LOVE never The Monk as Man: The Unknown Life of Swami Vivekananda going toet over the uniue formatting and how The Tomb of Iuchiban great it is Todd is a precious soft son and I love him so much also have decided Todd AND Viola are Hufflepuffs fite me but I will not be changed I was surprised Viola was narrating in this one but it was perfect and i loved her perspective plus her voice vs Todd s was really different which wasreat Todd s raw emotion was just seeping onto every page and as much as I nearly hated him for things he did I love him sobbing honestly the plot my feels didn t want to be together anyway i love how it contrasted two teams of war and how everyone sucks lowkey think the moral of this series is men suck character development was A and I hurtI loved the whole plottrope of Viola and Todd being separated and so close yet so far It s enough to drive anyone uP THE WALL which is where I live now Hello from up here I am cross but also desperate to know what happens next And there was so much emotion for both of them because they re kind of each other s life rafts even when they re apartThere is a lot of cloak and shadow war oing on in this one And I felt it was an interesting exploration of how tyrants often wheedle their people into believing they re doing the right thing This whole series is basically a dissection of power and control over yourself and others and it s SO interesting Like not only do I love the characters and the plot I adore the psychological aspect toTODD AND VIOLA LET ME CRYI pretty much adore Todd the most but I think that s because we spent all of book 1 solely in his head 3 But this book is about breaking and lies and twisting the knife into my heart So I just ached for Todd view spoilerSeeing him in shutdown mode after the spackle died SO SO HURT He s so depressed and so cut off and just ajfdkslad And how he couldn t believe Viola came back to save him Todddddd you re poor smol son hide spoiler This stunning seuel to The Knife Of Never Letting Go manages to measure up to its predecessor in a way I never thought possible After reading the first book I felt sure that
