Patrick Ness’s The New World: A Story of Chaos Walking 1

Okay, I’ve held off writing about The Ask and the Answer, as it isn’t out till September. But it is, I assure you Ness fans, fantastic. I think it may even be better than The Knife of Never Letting Go if that is possible. (Here’s my review of that book if you are interested.)  But now we’ve got something else to develop the Chaos Walking story even further. It is “The New World”, a short story Ness wrote for the UK Booktrust that is available starting today on their website.  It is wonderful too — bringing out more of Viola’s backstory to great effect.   I think, though, what I like the most is that it tells us more about Viola herself.  Superb stuff.
