I love The Chaos Walking series and Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. But I feel like, for me anyway, he's gone downhill from there. Including this book. I just haven't really liked them.
I liked Adam and the fact that he is a gay protagonist. But there is a weird fantasy plotline filled in that is completely separate. I couldn't figure it out. I'm sure it is supposed to be some metaphor. If someone understands what this book was about in the end I'd love an explanation.
It's not one I would really recommend its just too weird for my liking.
