Reviews

Ness deals sensitively with themes of love and race in this post-apocalyptic tale * Family Traveller *
Heart-breaking, emotional and dark. It's a story about love, forgiveness, friendship, hope and the unbelievable. It's a book that you'll invest time in and that will have your attention long after the last page is read - trust me * Luna's Little Library Book of the Month *
Ness, who won the Carnegie Medal two years running, has a talent for combining philosophical profundity and punchy prose. His books contain crackling dialogue, suspenseful action, twisty plots and big ideas. This novel toys with what we believe to be real, as teenage Seth drowns in the first chapter, only to wake up somewhere more complicated than an afterlife. His experience changes his attitude to the life he knew in suburban England and in small-town America, which is gradually revealed in flashbacks. With chapter endings so surprising you learn to hide the text rather than risk peeking ahead and spoiling the build-up, this is a story of friendship, danger, gay romance, child abduction, technology, guilt and hope. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
An enthralling and provocative new novel chronicling the life-or perhaps afterlife-of a teen trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world * World Book Day *
Gripping, ambitious -- Alex O'Connell * The Times *
More Than This is funny, tragic, and hopeful, often all at once and can be enjoyed by every type of reader, from those in English towns to the Washington coast. -- sosogay.co.uk * sosogay.co.uk *
Patrick Ness definitely knows how to keep readers intrigued and desperate to read the next chapter. -- The Guardian Online * The Guardian Online *
Ness's style of writing is beautiful, as it is in his other books, I could picture the story very well, and this makes his books very powerful. -- The Guardian Online * The Guardian Online *
It's incredibly hard to talk about this book without giving anything important away but if you want complexity, adventure and just a sprinkling of sci-fi, this book is most certainly for you. -- Young Reviewer * The Guardian Online *
I thought that this book started with a really interesting premise because usually in a book like this you follow the action heroes and not the bystanders. This meant that reading it was far better because it's difficult to relate to someone who's slaying vampires whereas someone who has OCD and is dealing with homework issues is far easier to understand. -- Reader Review * Teen Titles *
"It will really blow your mind" ... "it is surreal [...] really surprising [...] mind expanding [...] highly recommend it" * E Lockhart *
