Recensione

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. --The Sunday Times

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

Non è importante tentare di mettere questo libro in un genere, perchè cambia. Inizia in un modo, poi cambia, ma non è mai come te lo aspetti. Seth è un ragazzo che muore annegato e da lì inizia il suo viaggio ed il nostro perché è un libro sorprendente. Assolutamente da leggere e da rifletterci.

I wish there was a rating for "kind of okay". I didn't dislike it, but I wouldn't give it a full 3 stars either. It's a solid 2.5. This book starts out wonderful and then slows down, then gets wonderful again and then slows down. There are too many lulls. If those moments had been cut out and the book had been about half the length it would've been great. It has four parts...completely unnecessary. There was a lot of filler. I really hate that. Part of the story line is about a seventeen year old boy and his relationship with his boyfriend. All of this being said, I do think this book would make a great movie...it's what could be if The Matrix and Surrogates had a baby.

5.0 su 5 stelle the why he dies is like my biggest fear so there was that 28 agosto 2016
Di Carly - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
More Than This is more than you would think. Sorry, I just had to say that. But seriously though, picking this book up a few months ago, I would’ve never expected it to end how it did.

When you read the summary, you know straight off the bat? back? that Seth dies. And he literally dies in the first chapter. And not only is it a very vivid and detailed death, the why he dies is like my biggest fear so there was that.

But Seth wakes up in this death-like-limbo-hell. You’re just as confused as he is. You have every question he has. The book even ends with many questions not asked and I think that’s the point of it. It kind of makes you reassess your life.

The ambiguity is what this book required. You can’t have an answer or ‘closing all ties’ ending. It wouldn’t do it justice.

Throughout the book, Seth encounters two other people. The setting is in England, and one of them has broken English, and you can tell that he does because of the way that Ness wrote his dialogue. He didn’t overdo it though. It was a nice, even amount of broken English. Each character had a voice of their own. I knew who was speaking without the tag behind it. The book is just brilliant. It deserves more awards.

Patrick Ness continues to amaze me with all his works. I haven’t disliked a single one yet and I don’t think I will. I mention this book all the time because I want everyone to suffer the beauty that is A Monster Calls.

Please, do yourself a favor and read this book. Read all his books. Especially A Monster Calls.

5/5

5.0 su 5 stelle Another genius work by Patrick Ness! 17 ottobre 2013
Di Sara @ Forever 17 Books - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
More Than This can be classified as one of those books that was so amazing and so thought-provoking that I don’t even know exactly how to review it. Here is my attempt.

'Here is the boy, drowning.'

The very first line and it is exactly how we start out, with our main character Seth as he drowns. But then in the next chapter he wakes up and discovers he is in the dusty and deserted house where he grew up in an English suburb before a tragedy rocked his family. This house is also across the world from where he died in the Pacific Northwest. And he is very much alone.

Seth immediately assumes this must be hell. I mean, he died, right? His dreams are filled with memories that get him lost in the moment, feeling so real and a breath away, like he is reliving them. Can that be part of hell too? He struggles to find the necessary tools of survival as he explores his surroundings, afraid of any hidden dangers that may spring out at him, and trust me, they do!

I honestly had no idea what to expect when I opened this book with a synopsis that was somewhat vague and of course the author took it beyond my wildest dreams. The book is split into four parts and each drastically changed the dynamic of the story, unraveling more layers and making my jaw drop and my head spin, in the best of ways of course. There is so much mystery and heart and then it becomes somewhat philosophical and wow, when I got to that point I realized just how incredibly amazing this story really was.

Of course it wouldn’t be Patrick Ness without a sense of adventure and action… and a character that once again reminded me of Michael Myers who just doesn’t die! (Remember Aaron from The Knife of Never Letting Go, anyone?) But above anything else, this book is about life. It’s about realizing your worth, to get as much out of life as you can. It’s about self-discovery, confidence and going out there and grabbing onto your dreams. It’s about discovering just what the title says, that there IS more than this.

I thank the author for writing a YA novel that isn’t just filled with excitement and intrigue, but also makes you appreciate life and what you can get out of it. It’s a story that stays with you and I’m so thankful to have read it.

“Haven’t you ever felt like there has to be more? Like there’s more out there somewhere, just beyond your grasp, and if you could only get to it?”

This book was very intriguing. The way the book starts leads into a very engaging story. Also having a gay character is nice, as a queer person, I thought the character was very well written.

I love Patrick Ness, so it's a given that anything he writes, I'll most likely love it. He completely blew me away with the Chaos Walking Trilogy, and he did not disappoint with More Than This.

The premise of this novel is a bit strange, but isn't life a bit strange? You might not know what to except, but all you can do is go in fighting. Read this novel, and you'll understand where I'm coming from.

Patrick Ness, as always, writes flawlessly. I'd definitely recommend this book (and all the others he's written).
