My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Amazing book… I loved this so much. The darkness is met with a childlike appeal and it is a fantastic way of explaining grief and the different stages you face in human life. I have a great love for Patrick Ness and this book made me see the literary world in a different light. It has given me great inspiration for my Master’s dissertation and for that I am grateful. I now own three copies of this book and Jim kays illustrations are spectacular. This is also a book that will stay with me for a lifetime. I cannot rate it high enough and with the research into it that I have done for a previous analysis and essay on this book I can say I know it pretty well. High High Praise for Patrick Ness and Siobhan Dowd.
