The New World (Chaos Walking, #0.5) - Patrick Ness AAAAHHH This was sooo good! Okay, so when I found out about it I thought it was a whole book, so I totally flipped out, but then I found out it was a free short story … Well, still pretty exciting! Nonetheless, I LOVED IT. DUH. I wish it had been longer! It was really cool to find out a little more about Viola's life before she met Todd. Reading it was kind of painful though, considering I knew all along how her parents were going to die and all. Her mom's death scene was sooo sad :'( Patrick Ness writes with such realistic and raw emotion; he says so much in so few words. He is a flipping genius, I tell ya. I kind of worship him, just a little. And I need to see more books from this guy. Anyway, this short story was brilliant! I kind of wished we got to see Viola's perspective on meeting Todd! But, oh well. I still loved it.
