And the Ocean Was Our Sky | Sticky Note Reviews


I forgot to mention that I was #reading this one. I finished it on my way to work this afternoon. Anyone else read it?
And the Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness


There was no doubt in my mind, when I heard that Patrick Ness was releasing a new book, that I would pick it up. Patrick Ness has been one of my favorite authors since I read The Knife of Never Letting Go back in 2012.

And then I heard it was a reimagining of Moby Dick from the perspective of the whale and I was even more intrigued. Though I will admit that even though I have a degree in English Literature, I’ve managed never to read Moby Dick myself. After reading And the Ocean Was Our Sky, though?  I might rethink that position.

If I do, I’m skipping all the whaling chapters, because why?

So I’m thinking — can the end of a war really bring about peace? And are people monstrous, or do they just commit monstrous acts?  Can we say that the peace-bringer and the warmonger are the same person? So many thoughts. So many questions. Here’s my review.
