Patrick Ness: ‘Terry Pratchett makes you feel seen and forgiven’

I’m just about finished with Adam Levin’s thousand-page The Instructions, about a 10-year-old boy who thinks he might be the Jewish Messiah. Everyone makes David Foster Wallace comparisons, as if that explains anything, but I’ve found it a vastly entertaining, wildly over-loquacious joy. Then, for something completely different, I’ll be starting Adrian Tchaikovsky’s The Doors of Eden. He writes incredibly enjoyable sci-fi, full of life and ideas.

Chaos Walking Writer Patrick Ness Sheds Some Light On The Story Behind The Story - Exclusive Interview

In 2008, Patrick Ness' YA story The Knife of Never Letting Go was released into the world to enormous success. Over a decade later Chaos Walking, the film based on what became a series of books, was finally released into a very different sort of world. Chaos Walking is about a planet colonized by humanity. The planet is very Earth-like save for one important distinction — something about this world makes it so that every thought a man has will be broadcast as sound and images unless he does everything in his power to control it. That broadcast, dubbed "noise," plays havoc with human society, especially since it only impacts men and not women, leading to a deeply troubled civilization struggling to keep itself together.
