Description

The New World is a prequel to the award-winning Chaos Walking trilogy, setting the stage for the world we discover in The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Ask and the Answer, and Monsters of Men. The story was written while the author served as writer in residence for the Booktrust an independent UK-wide charity dedicated to encouraging people of all ages and cultures to enjoy books.

The New World tells of Viola's journey to the New World, brilliantly capturing the hope and fear of settlers in search of a new life. Patrick Ness says that he wrote it "as a huge and deeply-felt thank you to readers. I've had so many questions about Viola and what her life was like before that I couldn't resist the opportunity to reveal just a little bit extra. I knew these things - they're vitally important to her as a character, even if they're not directly in the novels - so it felt like a secret trip I could take readers on. The challenge was to make it work on its own, too, so anyone could read it. That was really, really good fun, and I hope the final result is an exciting one."

The New World can be listened to before or after the trilogy – and some may choose to do both. The story works as a standalone piece, but listeners already familiar with The Knife of Never Letting Go will learn more about Viola’s life and the events leading to her arrival and first encounter with Todd, while newcomers to the trilogy will discover a white-knuckle ride of an introduction to the series. Whether you're a new or faithful listener, though, it's a welcome chance to immerse yourself in the world of Chaos Walking.

Awesome entertainment value!

Awesome story and performance! Listening to this free audiobook reading while I read along in the free Kindle book really brought the story to life for me! I can't wait to read/hear the rest of the story!

Nice little taste.

I just finished reading book 1 and saw this. A great little story to help shed light on how we got to New World. if you are reading the series, this should be part of your plan.

Good read.

This prequel is great, very interesting setting.I enjoyed it more than the first book in the series. The accents were a little distracting though.

Best way to start a series

I read and listened to this audiobook before reading “The Knife I’d Never Letting Go”. The story of how one of the main characters, Viola, ended up to “The New World” was tragic and was honestly a great way to start the series.

Interesting ... contemplative ...

Would you try another book from Patrick Ness and/or Angela Dawe?

I think I should .. or would.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The story was a bit dragged out but all in all, I found it a nice listen. I don't like whinny children whose parents are doing the best they can to make a better life for everyone as a whole.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Angela Dawe?

Yes ... she sounded youthful, ambitious and had nice pacing.

Was The New World: Prequel to the Chaos Walking Trilogy worth the listening time?

It was just a bit 'slow' ... but that doesn't mean it wasn't good.

Great start..

Wow!.. What an exciting start. If THE NEW WORLD is truly a good representation of what’s to come in the Chaos Walking Trilogy, then I’m excited to jump into the series and find out what the future holds for Viola.

Good beginning

At this point I think it's totally a ya novel. Still I've enjoyed it, suppose that's the Peter Pan in me. It's enough that I'm going to go back and take another look at Book 1 to see where it may lead.
There's no reason not to try at least this Prequel after all....it's free and worth your 3/4 hour time.

Good, but misleading

Let me start by saying I liked this short story and I love the series.

I am disappointed and worried that many who have not read the series will read this first and believe that it is similar to what the series is like. The good writing is of course the same, but what makes the series so good is the concept of the story. Everyone can hear what every male is thinking including animals.

I believe this series to be better then the Hunger Games, it is certainly more original. Humans hunting humans for sport is not a new idea. Don't get me wrong I have read the first two books in the hunger games, plan on reading the third and believe them excellent books. I just like this better and believe it is not as popular because the main star is not female, and females read more then males. This prequel may even be the authors attempt to capture that audience.

So if you have read the series, you will enjoy this free story and if you have not you will enjoy, but remember, The Knife of Never Letting Go is awesome.

Surprisingly good!

I haven’t read the main books yet, but I’m already feeling glad that I listen to this. It was really good and I was actually hoping the story would just continue in itself.
My only low rating was because of the narrators voice. There’s something about it that just really bothered me. Maybe it was the cadence, I’m not sure.
But I will say she put me to sleep right away. Ha ha for the past three nights I play the story with a sleep timer and fall right asleep

I still need more Mr. Ness

I just finished the whole series which left me in awe and I needed more so I automatically went to this and it didn’t disappoint, but I need more. Just one more book!
