Can I just die nowWhen I first opened The Knife of Never Letting Go I didn't know what to expect. When I opened Ask and Answer I was ready for some awesome epicness. When I opened Monsters of Men I expected so much that I was so shocked Patrick Ness managed to exceed my expectations by so, so, much. Because he's effing amazing.And when I found out there's a prequel to this gorgeously written story, I just had to read it. And yes, I found this short story online. It's basically Viola's POV this whole time and talking about her past. Now that I look back at the things she did in The Knife of Never Letting Go I realize how hard it was for her and ugh wowTHE FIREBOX!!Okay yeah all I have to say is that this series is gonna wrench out your soul and tear it to pieces and dissect your organs and step on them until they're bloodless. Terrible, horrifying, and amazing.
