Paperback, 528 Pages
YA/ Sci-fi/ Dystopia
By: Patrick Ness

“In this world of numbness and information overload, the ability to feel, my boy, is a rare gift indeed.”
🌟 Yay, I was exactly the 60,000th thousand person to rate this!!

I guess you know the drill by this point, I usually compare the second book in a series with the first and see what improved and what didn’t.
🌟 I didn’t know what to expect after the ending of book 1 so my Ask was if I will enjoy this as much and the Answer is apparently yes, it was a very good book.
🌟 The writing is as good as book 1. These books are large (500-650 Pages) but the good news is that they feel like 300-400 pages instead. Patrick’s writing is easy to follow, full of suspense and can be poetic at the same time.

“We are the choices we make. And have to make. We aren’t anything else.”
🌟 The Pacing in book 1 was faster which is always a plus for me, the pace here is slower but not too slow so it is still enjoyable.
🌟 There weren’t many new characters but the characters we know developed and I expected the change in some characters which was awesome and devil!
🌟 Every one were talking about the plot twists in this book, I saw most of them before they happened and specially at the ending I was like what if this and that happened, that would be terrific and guess what? It did happen  😀
I liked how this was much darker than book 1 and some of the scenes were graphic so beware, I don’t think it is a suitable book for younger children. I discovered lately that I really love darker reads just because they are more realistic, the real world is not sunshine and flowers!
🌟 The world also expanded and I think we are getting more of it in the next book.
🌟 Summary: The Ask and the Answer was as almost as good as book 1, if you liked book 1 then the series is definitely worth continuing. It was slower paced, darker and more twisted. The story is balanced and I can’t wait to know how it ends. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
