The Knife of Never Letting Go

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness


Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a world of men. All the women, including his mother, were wiped out by a virus just after he was born. The virus also meant that men could hear each other's thoughts. And it means that animals can speak.
One day, after coming back from the swamp, his guardians make him leave, for his own safety. Todd has no idea why. But then he meets Viola, a girl, and realises that maybe not everything he'd been told was true.

'The knife of never letting go' was very hard to get into, but once I did, it was great. I liked the way Todd found out more about his life as he went through. Some of the things in it are a bit scary, but apart from that it was a pretty good book.

I am going to give it an 8/10
and an age rating of 11+
