More than this by Patrick Ness

more than thisUnusual and thoughtful, this is aimed at young adults but older readers will find plenty to enjoy. Hard to pigeonhole, this book is ultimately philosophical and concerned with what we make of our lives. One character is gay and his relationships (as with all the relationships portrayed in this story) are beautifully well-written, still a rarity in mainstream fiction.


A boy called Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. How is that possible? 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 neighbourhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust and completely abandoned. What’s going on?
