Reviews

"Wrenching, dark, and powerful."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"In his latest, the critically acclaimed and wildly divergent Ness, never one for convention, takes the story of Moby-Dick, pares it down to its basic parts, and quite literally inverts it... Ness' writing--spare, thought provoking, and already dramatic--is utterly enhanced by Cai's breathtaking artwork." --Booklist (starred review)
"An excellent, stirring counterpoint to the original text, rife with questions about the inexorable nature of belief and violence."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"The whale epic, particularly Bathsheba's discussions with the human hostage, mounts an exploration of inherited prejudices, violence justified, and the far-reaching consequences of war."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Fans moved by the author's A Monster Calls will be especially gratified to see Ness revisit this type of mythic, philosophical storytelling artfully complemented by powerful illustrations."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
