4.5 to the main character- Todd, I want to throttle you, when do you learn ? I understand you are young and want to believe, but those of us who are jaded know better. Watching you stumble and grow is painful at times. I have grown to love you, cheer for you, cry for you and Viola. She is hiding something from you, pay attention ! Listen to her, you are different, why ? Thank you for not leaving your four legged friend.
This last book is twisted an emotion roller-coaster for all the characters. Lives are lost, trusts are broken and the truth is finally reveled. Twisted ! I did not know where this way going. A grand finale for a wonderful series. ( )

I LOVED this book!! It was such a perfect end to the "Chaos Walking" trilogy. From the start I was hooked and had it read over a weekend. The action and suspense never let up and you find yourself asking, What would I do in this situation? as the characters struggle with the choices that have to be make and with the monsters living within them, trying to escape. Filled with love and hate, good and evil, atrocities and acts of kindness, heartbreak and suffering, this is one book that is almost impossible to put down once you start. Congratulations Patrick Ness on an incredible series! ( )

Monsters of Men Patrick Ness
4 Stars

The final book in The Chaos Walking Trilogy, although there are other in between books I have decided to read the main trilogy only.

This is a tough one to write a review for as being the final book it is easy to give away spoilers from the previous books so I will cover it in general terms.

The title refers to war, war is what makes monsters of men.

The inhabitants of the New World are faced with difficult decisions and heartbreak as events lead unavoidably to war.

Patrick Ness has managed to show how difficult the decisions taken in a time of conflict are and made them accessible and understandable to a younger audience, what he does really well is show that war is not black and white, good and evil instead it is full of different shades of grey.

I enjoyed this whole series and felt the ending was well done a good place for the reader to leave the New World while also leaving the door open for a return visit. ( )
