I liked Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking trilogy quite a lot, even though the style of the writing annoyed me after a while; each book could easily be 100 pages shorter. The style of writing is much different in A Monster Calls, more restrained and controlled. I'm not sure how much of that is because he's adapting an idea by a different writer--Siobhan Dowd, who died from cancer before she could write the book herself--or just because he's a versatile writer (Monster is 3rd person, the Chaos Walking novels use several 1st person narrators, and the out-of-control feel is important to the story).
