BOOK REVIEW: THE CHAOS WALKING TRILOGY
"The Noise is a man unfiltered, and without a filter, a man is just chaos walking."
― Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go
Chaos walking is an amazing series by Patrick Ness. This series includes 3 books. To be honest, this series is one of my top favorite series. Without any further ado let's get into the reviewing:
Chaos Walking trilogy is actually an experience where you really understand how far the monsters in men can go. This story is set in an alternative universe (New World) and a lot of things are going on and I don't want to spoil it! The main characters are Todd Hewitt and Viola Eade and this story revolves around them but the real plot is having more depth. This series has 3 books and they are:
1: THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO
2: THE ASK AND THE ANSWER
3: THE MONSTERS OF MEN
I won't be revealing any plot points because I don't wanna spoil it so instead I will share my viewpoint about this series as a whole. I felt like it is a journey that you never expected but still happened. It revolves around a lot of elements that happen in real life too. The book starts with the story revolving around Todd and Viola and when it ends the book is revolving around the people of the new world. I must say that the story is really thrilling and each of the books ends with a cliffhanger. Together with thrilling-adventure elements, there are also many emotional touches. And of course, brilliant plot twist. Each one of them is unexpected! I am not kidding when I say that the cliffhanging endings of the books are really brilliant and you will never see it coming. It is like, you come to the end of the road expecting hope but it just vanishes. still, the 3 books are tied together by that HOPE itself! There are also many heartbreaking moments in the series and it makes us think about it again and again even after finishing the series. It also teaches about reality elements as I have said before like hope, war, how unexpected life is, and so on!
"I am the circle and the circle is me"
When I wrap up this review all I got to say is I suggest this series to anyone who likes to read science and dystopian fiction and those who are not much sensitive. I suggest this to people of age 14+ and I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
That's it, those who have read the series or would like to read it please drop a comment below!
