I've waited too long to review The Ask and the Answer
I do remember loving it--not as much as the first book, perhaps, but still loving it. As in The Knife of Never Letting Go
, it had minor things that annoyed me, along with some typos, but these things didn't severely change my view of the story. I suppose I am still irritated that Todd let the Mayor go at the end, and I had a little trouble with the fact that two boys end up falling for Viola. What is with this trend in YA literature? Anyway....For Those of You Wondering About Content...
Violence: intense events, such as torture scenes; quite a bit of violence in general
Language: no f-bombs; other cussing throughout, but perhaps not as much as in the first book
Other: Again, the series is heavy. I would have some serious qualms about giving this to anyone under 13 or 14.
If made into a movie, it would probably receive a PG-13 rating for violence, language, and thematic elements.
