taralovesbooks’ #CBR4 Review #9: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Cannonball Read IV: Book #9/52
Genre: Young Adult/Dystopian
The Knife of Never Letting Go is the first book in Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking trilogy. It’s gotten rave reviews, so I decided to check it out. I’m so glad I gave it a chance because I loved it!
Todd Hewitt lives in a town called Prentisstown in New World. In New World, only men are left after a disease killed all the women and caused everyone to be able to read everyone else’s thoughts (or “noise”). Or so Todd is taught. He’s the youngest male left in Prentisstown and his mother left him a book with the truth in it. A month before Todd becomes a man (his 13th birthday), his two caretakers send him out of town with a map and his mother’s book to learn the truth.
