More Than This | [Patrick Ness]

More Than This

A boy named Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America.

Publisher's Summary

A boy named Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighborhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust, and completely abandoned. What’s going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonising memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this ...

What the Critics Say

"[Ness has] outdone himself ... a terrific exemplar of the eternal teenage desire for there to be, in the words of the novel's title, "more than this" – more than a world in which prejudice and hypocrisy dictate how people should or shouldn't live their lives." (Guardian)

    "amazing book...truly gripping"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story was mesmerizing throughout with twists and turns you just don't expect. The style of the book makes you feel as though you are right there with the characters.


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    Nicks brings the charatcters to life, almost making them leap of the page as you listen.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was hooked from chapter one and couldn't wait to get to the next chapter, wondering what twist the book will take next


    Any additional comments?

    highly recommended...a very good book which will leave you demanding a sequel!
