Review: And the Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness

36979356And the Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness

With harpoons strapped to their backs, the proud whales of Bathsheba's pod live for the hunt, fighting in the ongoing war against the world of men. When they attack a ship bobbing on the surface of the Abyss, they expect to find easy prey. Instead, they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself...

As their relentless Captain leads the chase, they embark on a final, vengeful hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of both whales and men.

Patrick Ness is a hit-or-miss author for me, and this one book ended up being an ok read for me. I did enjoy it, but I found the plot to be rather slow and overall, very short - which may have been a good thing since it was so hard for me to get into.

And the Ocean Was Our Sky was a powerful novel in regards to what the novel's message is about, and I am definitely grateful that I took the time to pick up this book, because initially, I had no desire to read this one, but after reading A Monster Calls, I wanted to see if another book by Patrick Ness could be as great as that one.

I would still recommend it, even though I wasn't as satisfied with this novel as I was hoping. If you love Patrick Ness's books then you will most likely enjoy this one. If you are not a fan of Moby Dick, then I don't know if I would recommend this book to you - but ultimately if the book sounds interesting, then go for it.
