LoveReading View on Monsters of Men

Winner of the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2011.

This is a spine-tingling, page turning read. Heaped with well-deserved awards, the Chaos Walking Trilogy comes to a brilliant conclusion in Monsters of Men.

 

Set in a dystopian future in a world where all thoughts can be heard, Todd and Viola have struggled to survive. Now three armies are marching on New Prentisstown. Todd and Viola have no chance of escape but, worse still, they have no chance of making peace. Can any hope remain in the wake of such destruction? Patrick Ness is as hard hitting and thought provoking as he was at the start of this trilogy. He does not disappoint.

 

Shortlisted for the 25th Anniversary Arthur C Clarke Award in 2011 and Galaxy Children's Book Award shortlist 2010.
