The Knife of Never Letting Go
"I know what a girl is. Course I do. I seen ‘em in the Noise of their fathers in town, mourned like their wives but not nearly so often."
Todd Hewitt is the last boy in Prentisstown.
But Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in a constant, overwhelming, never-ending Noise. There is no privacy. There are no secrets.
Or are there?
This novel is a really good first book of an amazing dystopian trilogy.
There is a massive cliffhanger and made me cry.
I recommend this book for ages 12+ girls and boys. It kept me on the edge of my seat, and I simply adored it. I loved the characters, especially Todd and how real he seemed. Throughout the series, you watch him progress and it really shows you how human we all are and how easy it is to become entangled in something we want no part of. It left me with so many questions, but I think that it made it all that much better, because some questions cannot be answered for us.
I usually don't really go for books like this, but Patrick Ness knows what he's doing, because I could not put a single book of the series down once I started reading it.
Fairly easy to read, less easy to be objective while reading it. I would definitely recommend it. And even if you don't enjoy the first book, at least try to read the others because they are some amazing reads as well.
WARNING: Later in the series, some of the characters' actions really infuriated me (the "good" characters) and it may not be the same for you... but I'm still giving you a heads up.
This book is brilliant. Read by all ages, it has a great story-line...
It's VERY easy to read and VERY interesting. It's great key factor in the book is about his dog's thoughts, "Tod, Tod, come here Tod!" My whole family has read this book, the only problem about it is the sequel to it, luckily the sequel isn't in the book.
The book consists of MANY little interesting plots with awesome twists etc.
(quick review because I haven't finished reading the book).
This book was a bit, lets be honest, boring. I loved the whole storyline and plot but I kept getting confused and fazing out. But it was well written and the second ( a for answer) and third book (monsters of men) had me alot more reeled in. I reccomend you read this book but even if it starts to bore you......keep reading the series. Its worth it. Trust me. You will be waking up at midnight for the third book, just because you HAVE to know what hapens next. But, you this book (1st) first.
i have read this book and i loved it the best was the way it was writine amazing book.
A challenging, different book that tests everything you know. Itwon a place on my bookshelf and I am always re-reading it. Todd has had a hard life and I fell in love with his character and how he portrays life.
