The first three chapters are phenomenal. The rest is, in turns, meandering, dull, irritating, overlong, and inconclusive. But the first three chapters are fantastic.
One of the reasons I'm not always a fan of series or trilogies (especially those with thick tomes) is that the writers often begin to repeat themselves, characters and/or plot don't develop in the same way as a stand alone book, and I get bored. Ness has outdone himself! I'm not bored by Chaos Walking. In fact, I'm running to get the third book to find out how this all resolves itself. I really liked that Ness develops Todd and Viola in this novel, and the reader can see the ways that the events in books 1 & 2 have changed them. Ness has Todd and Viola narrate the novel. It's great to see the same event through two sets of eyes. The novel is just as much a character study as it is a fast-paced, plot driven novel.
