Anyone who knows me will know how much I love Patrick Ness’ books, so when the event was announced I rushed to get a ticket. March 5th I went along to the the Chaos Walking fan event in Waterstones Piccadilly to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the epic trilogy. There was an immersive noise experience which was awesome! This was created by the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London, especially for the event. I adore the new anniversary editions with black sprayed edges, look at them!
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume’s Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17. It’s a big day. Things go wrong. It’s intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches…
Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It’s a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won’t come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course.
