    This is an extremely beautiful book and the illustrations were just !! Which is how you write a super good review, kids, by saying your opinion is "!!!" ahem. Anyway. This isn't really like any of the other Patrick Ness books I've read. I thought, since it had illustrations, it was goi...

    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...

    Holy fuck, whale feels are real feels. This is like a second coming of A Monster Calls, except not. The art, the themes, the collision of everything at the end to give us Ness' usual one-two punch of truth. My goodness are the visuals in this book is stunning. I may have been iffy w...

    Patrick Ness has done it again! ? This is a beautiful story. It is an allegory about what happens when you let your hatred run free and don't challenge the lies that it sprouts. I loved how unique this story was and the illustrations were beautiful. I felt empathy for our mai...

    This is a beautiful story . I couldn't give it less than 5 stars. The characters here are whales and a human. I liked how the author made them female whales and they were going to save their whole race.I loved the conversations between the whale and the man . I loved how the ending c...

    A Personal Ranking of All the Patrick Ness Novels So, since there are far too many Patrick Ness novels and I haven't done a review for any of them, I've decided to do this list instead. (And all of this is spoiler-free, so don't worry.) Here, in my not-so-humble opinion, is a r...

    Review to come. In the meantime... This is gorgeously illustrated, and an interesting take on Moby Dick (something I must admit to not having read), in which the story is told from the point of view of a whale who hunts men as vengeance for the harm they do to whales... The w...

    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 ...

    This review and other non-spoilery reviews can be found @The Book Prescription ? This is a short story by Patrick Ness, in under 160 pages, we have a kind of ?Moby Dick? re-telling. It also has great illustrations which helped understanding the quirkiness of this story. If yo...

    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...

    Holy fuck, whale feels are real feels. This is like a second coming of A Monster Calls, except not. The art, the themes, the collision of everything at the end to give us Ness' usual one-two punch of truth. My goodness are the visuals in this book is stunning. I may have been iffy w...

    2.5 stars I'm gonna keep it short . I didn't like this very much . But the beautiful illustrations were exceptional . And I've given half stars for the illustrations alone . And the Ocean Was Our Sky is Moby Dick's retelling . If I say anything more than this , then it would be ...

    T/W- Scenes of Drowning, Blood Having read and hated the original Moby Dick novel a few months ago, I went into this with somewhat high expectations. This is a re-imagine from the POV of a whale. I like reading stories with animal POVs, however, this story didn't grasp me as much as...

    A really interesting and unique take on Moby Dick, from the whale's POV. ...

    Moving day is finally almost here (this Thursday!) which is why I am 15 books behind schedule and haven't read anything in ages. Sometimes I'm still awake at 3am and I decide to try to read after packing for hours and it doesn't work. This is not relevant to this book at all, just m...

    4.5 I know this was short but I literally just read that in one sitting. Patrick Ness can somehow turn a whale story into something deep and thought-provoking. Dang. My Thoughts Okay first of all, let me tell you that the illustrations aregorgeous.And it's not even a finishe...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5* I'm not going to lie to you and say that it isn't a little strange reading from a whale's perspective. It is. But, in a way that only Patrick Ness could, it's turne...

    4.5 Stars. Oh my goodness, this is so incredibly beautiful. The illustrations, the writing, the story, just beautiful. I'm going to try to form words now, bear with me. I sat down to read this and didn't move a muscle until I finished it. Yes, the point of view is from a whale, h...

    "Why is Patrick Ness your favourite author?" I hear you ask... Because reading his books is always an experience like no other. It is always filled with emotion and unexpected elements that make each story unique and new in a way that a lot of popular novels I read (and love to read,...

    ANOTHER PATRICK NESS BOOK!!!!! I?m pumped!!!! ...

    "For there are devils in the deep, but worst are the ones we make." ...

    Patrick Ness has done it again! ? This is a beautiful story. It is an allegory about what happens when you let your hatred run free and don't challenge the lies that it sprouts. I loved how unique this story was and the illustrations were beautiful. I felt empathy for our mai...

    This is a beautiful story . I couldn't give it less than 5 stars. The characters here are whales and a human. I liked how the author made them female whales and they were going to save their whole race.I loved the conversations between the whale and the man . I loved how the ending c...

    A Personal Ranking of All the Patrick Ness Novels So, since there are far too many Patrick Ness novels and I haven't done a review for any of them, I've decided to do this list instead. (And all of this is spoiler-free, so don't worry.) Here, in my not-so-humble opinion, is a r...

    Review to come. In the meantime... This is gorgeously illustrated, and an interesting take on Moby Dick (something I must admit to not having read), in which the story is told from the point of view of a whale who hunts men as vengeance for the harm they do to whales... The w...

    This review and other non-spoilery reviews can be found @The Book Prescription ? This is a short story by Patrick Ness, in under 160 pages, we have a kind of ?Moby Dick? re-telling. It also has great illustrations which helped understanding the quirkiness of this story. If yo...

    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...

    Holy fuck, whale feels are real feels. This is like a second coming of A Monster Calls, except not. The art, the themes, the collision of everything at the end to give us Ness' usual one-two punch of truth. My goodness are the visuals in this book is stunning. I may have been iffy w...

    T/W- Scenes of Drowning, Blood Having read and hated the original Moby Dick novel a few months ago, I went into this with somewhat high expectations. This is a re-imagine from the POV of a whale. I like reading stories with animal POVs, however, this story didn't grasp me as much as...

    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 ...
