Snowscape is set after the end of Monsters of Men , so that's when you should read it. That's all I'll say, I don't want to give anything away.wink - Patrick Ness
When I finished reading Monsters of Men, I was hungover and wanted more. When I learned about this short story, I just had to grab it. So do not read this until after you’re done with the trilogy!
The story was narrated by Lee, who has gone blind. They set out to explore the New World. It was very interesting to experience his blindness, well sort of. He used other people’s Noise to navigate his way around. That was genius! Wouldn’t it be awesome if that happened in real life?
Patrick Ness had me so terrified of the monster in this short story that I had a nightmare after reading. The Snowscape. The story behind the monster was both paralyzing and sad at the same time. Even though I loved Lee’s perspective, I honestly would’ve loved this short more if there was more Viola and Todd.
The ending? Let’s just say, it made me cry.
