More Than This

From two-time Carnegie Medal winner Patrick Ness comes an enthralling and provocative new novel chronicling the life ? or perhaps afterlife ? of a teen trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world. A boy named Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighborhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust, and completely abandoned. What?s going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this. . . .

  • "Seth (16) verdrinkt in de ijskoude golven van de Grote oceaan, angstig en alleen. Als hij verzwakt bijkomt in een verlaten Engels voorstadje denkt hij in de hel terechtgekomen te zijn. Vanaf ca. 15 jaar."
  • "In welcher Wirklichkeit leben wir? Ein Junge ertrinkt, verzweifelt und verlassen in seinen letzten Minuten. Er stirbt. Dann erwacht er, nackt, verletzt und durstig, aber lebendig. Wie kann das sein? Und an was für einem seltsamen, verlassenen Ort befindet er sich? Während er versucht zu verstehen, was mit ihm geschehen ist, regt sich Hoffnung bei dem Jungen. Ist das vielleicht doch noch nicht das Ende? Bietet dieses Leben vielleicht doch mehr als das? Patrick Ness wuchs in den Vereinigten Staaten und auf Hawaii auf. Seit Ende der 90er-Jahre lebt er in London und ist dort als Literaturkritiker für die Tageszeitung The Guardian tätig. Für seine Kinder- und Jugendbücher wurde er mehrfach ausgezeichnet, er gewann unter anderem den renommierten Costa Children's Book Award und war auf der Auswahlliste für die Carnegie Medal. Für "Sieben Minuten nach Mitternacht" erhielt er als erster Autor gleichzeitig die Carnegie Medal und den Kate Greenaway Award sowie neben unzähligen anderen Auszeichnungen den Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2012. In "Sieben Minuten nach Mitternacht" schreibt Patrick Ness eine Idee seiner mit der Carnegie Medal ausgezeichneten Schriftstellerkollegin Siobhan Dowd weiter. Ihr früher, tragischer Krebstod verhinderte die Umsetzung ihrer Idee in eine eigene Geschichte."
