Chaos Walking Series

(15 reviews)

The Chaos Walking trilogy is an award-winning YA science fiction series by Patrick Ness.

Set in a dystopian universe without women or girls where everyone's thoughts are broadcast for all to hear, the Chaos walking series has won multiple awards including the Guardian Award, the Costa Children’s Award and the Carnegie Medal. 

In 2021 the Chaos Walking books were also made into a film, starring Daisy Ridley, Tom Holland and Mads Mikkelsen, which was released in April 2021 in the UK, after delays caused by Covid 19 lockdowns.  

The books are fast-paced and cover themes such as the meaning of war, redemption and gender politics. The series should be read in order, starting with book one The Knife of Never Letting Go and is suitable for readers 12+.

All the Chaos Walking books in order:

Book 1: The Knife of Letting Go (2008)
Book 2: The Ask and the Answer (2009)
Book 3: Monsters of Men (2010)
