visión de conjunto:Críticas As in his preceding books Ness offers incisive appraisals of violence power and human nature and with the series complete it's clear that he has crafted one of the most important works of young adult science fiction in recent years.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) [Ness's] rapid-fire litany of impossible choices makes for captivating thought fodder and what has already been a potent display of the power of voice to drive amplify and transform a story gets a third unexpected soloist. And in so doing he shows just how deep and complex as well as how versatile a symbolic and narrative device the concept of Noise can be. . . .This is science fiction at its best and is a singular fusion of brutality and idealism that is at last perfectly human.--Booklist (starred review) This is a complex and engrossing work that series fans will devour.--School Library Journal With its dark tone violence and readerly fanaticism the book belongs firmly beside Suzanne Collins's work.--The Wall Street Journal The Chaos Walking trilogy is genuinely imaginative dealing as much with questions of privacy and information overload as it does with the more self evident subject of war (The New World's great menace is a germ that makes men s thoughts audible and visible.) Young adult readers should definitely start with the first two volumes before tackling the third and I'm afraid shouldn't expect to get much sleep until they've turned the final page.--The Wall Street Journal Reseña del editor The riveting Chaos Walking trilogy by two-time Carnegie Medalist Patrick Ness reissued with compelling new covers — and a bonus short story in each book.“This is science fiction at its best and is a singular fusion of brutality and idealism that is at last perfectly human.” — Booklist (starred review)As a world-ending war surges around them Todd and Viola face monstrous decisions.
