The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness is the second installment of the series Chaos Walking. In the first book, Todd and Viola went to their supposed safe place, but it had already been conquered by their enemy, Mayor Prentiss. In there, they were imprisoned and Todd was forced to learn about the Mayor’s new orders. Bombs also started exploding from another group called the Answer which was made to overthrow the Mayor.
This books showed how easily people are brainwashed by others for a “loyal” cause and also how people can exploit it. The book’s pacing is relatively slow, so I wouldn’t recommend it to people who enjoy fast paced and action filled books. I myself enjoyed it a lot.
