And the Ocean Was Our Sky Reviews
An interesting message but, unfortunately, it seems no amount of interesting messages can make a story about a pod of whales not boring. Sorry.
I've definitely said this before but I'd like to stress it again: I love that Patrick Ness gets creative. He thinks outside of the box. He doesn't care for tropes or trends; he simply looks to tell an interesting and unique story. That's why I will keep reading his books. And The Knife of Never Letting Go is still one of my all time favourites.
That being ...more
Najťažší okamih v mojej editorskej kariére nastal, keď som si prečítal email, v ktorom stálo: "Patrick (Ness) a jeho agentka Michelle (tá, ktorá je vo venovaniach) by radi vedeli, čo si myslíš o ATOWOS."
Zamysleli ste sa niekedy, čo povedať autorovi, ktorého ako jedného z mála obdivujete, o jeho knihe? A napísať to tak, aby to neboli prázdne reči, ktoré sa hádžu na obálku kníh, že to povedal New York Times alebo niekto podobne anonymní?
Zavrel som dvere, oči aj uši pred svetom a napísal som to, ...more
I am a big fan of Patrick Ness! I admire that he's not afraid to probe the darker side of human nature, and that his books really make you think. On the surface, you might think you're reading a simple fable with beautiful accompanying illustrations. But you soon start to see the darker aspects peek through. You're impressed with how cleverly it's presented, but you're not quite sure if you're feeling comfortable or not. And that's ok. I think it's a sign of a really great writer who can accompl ...more
This is a lovely illustrated graphic novel about the need to analyze war beyond simple prophecy. Patrick Ness really shines when given a basic thematic core to live off of; even a simple story like this feels super engrossing in the context of the gorgeous art.
So what I like about this story is the commentary on war and prejudice. Within this story, the primary dynamic is between the whale world and the human world - the human world resents the whales as killers, and the whale world resents the ...more
ANOTHER PATRICK NESS BOOK!!!!! I’m pumped!!!!
Keď Erik zverejnil svoju recenziu, pýtala som sa, či môžem ešte pred vydaním niečo napísať aj ja. A on že: "Až keď to preložíš."
TAK SOM TO PRELOŽILA, OKEJ? A som rada, že som to spravila. Lebo keby som niečo písala bezprostredne po čítaní, vyzeralo by to úplne inak. Mala som totiž nesprávne očakávania: je to krátke, má to obrázky a je to o veľrybách, takže to isto bude metaforický doják ako Sedem minút po polnoci. CHYBA.
Každá. Jedna. Nessova. Kniha. Je. Úplne. Iná.
Táto je o húfe veľrýb, ktorý ...more
"For there are devils in the deep, but worst are the ones we make."
This was my 6th book I read this month and it sadly is my least favorite book of the month. I'm sad to say that because I was highly anticpating this novel. But it didn't live up to my hype!(:
