TeaserThis week I’m reading More than This by Patrick Ness. I’m a huge, big fan of Patrick Ness and I don’t think I’ve come across a bad book yet. This is no exception. I’m around halfway through and I’m absolutely loving it so far. It’s not a happy cheery read but there’s something totally addictive about it. Anyway, here’s this weeks teaser.

 


More Than ThisMy Teaser

An impossible amount of time passes, a day, a year, maybe even and eternity, there is no way he can know. Finally, in the distance, the light begins to slowly, almost imperceptively change. A greyness emerges, then a lighter greyness, and he starts to come back to himself.

~ Page 14, More Than This by Patrick Ness

 


Synopsis (from GoodReads)

A boy drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments. He dies.

Then he wakes, naked and bruised and thirsty, but alive.

How can this be? And what is this strange deserted place?

As he struggles to understand what is happening, the boy dares to hope. Might this not be the end? Might there be more to this life, or perhaps this afterlife?


Happy reading everyone.

    • I do love his books. He has such a fantastic imagination and always manages to create characters you really care about. I’d definitely recommend A Monster Calls as I think it’s probably the best (and it’s quite short)
