Imagine you’re the only boy in a town of men.

And you can hear everything they think.

And they can hear everything you think.

Imagine you don’t fit in with their plans.

Todd Hewitt is just one month away from the birthday that will make him a man.

But his town has been keeping secrets from him.

Secrets that are going to force him to run.

And run he does, with an army chasing him, and untold dangers ahead.

Something is going to have to give, but he can’t fail, because he holds more than his own fate in his hands.

Comments on: "The knife of never letting go – Patrick Ness" (4)

  1. I throughly enjoyed “The Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness. He has created an incredibly detailed universe where females no longer exists, dooming the remaining males to die out. Todd Hewitt is the protagonist of the whole series, who encounters a life-changing problem. Todd is very stubborn, which made it slightly frustrating to read, but does not effect how the book draws you in from the first sentence. My favourite character was Manchee, Todd’s loyal dog who never left his side. I throughly enjoyed reading his thoughts on the page. Having the minor characters thoughts on the page felt odd at times, but something I quickly got used to. I would strongly anybody who enjoys a good sci-fi book, that also has a bit of everything from romance to adventure. I give this book a 9/10, only because Todd made some annoying decisions.

    the book “the knife of never letting go” by Patrick ness is a story about a boy named Todd who lives in a small town with only men in it. after a few chapters in the book Todd discovers that he has been lied too after he finds a girl named viola. Todd and viola then go on a journey with his dog Manchee to find a civilised place to live. I found this book really interesting and it always had me on the edge of my seat! I did find at the start of the book it was a bit confusing and I had to read over some parts a few times, but once I understood it the book became my favourite thing to read. when I read this book I was absolutely addicted and I could not put the book down! Patrick ness really expresses the emotion the characters feel and I love it! I would recommend this book to a person if they love to read a book full of adventure and a book that keeps them on the edge of their seat!


  3. The Novel, ‘The knife of never letting go.’ by Patrick Ness is about the story of boy who lives in a town where there are only men, until he discovers he has been lied to all his life…. I found the first couple of chapters of this was really interesting in this book, I found that I lost interest until Viola and Todd made it to Farbranch. Originally, the way the author wrote from Todd’s point of view (Spelling incorrectly) really annoyed me but towards the end of the novel I loved it because I felt as though I knew Todd better an I understood how muddled all his thoughts were and how quickly he jumped from thought to thought. From the time Viola and Todd got to Farbranch I was addicted!


  4. This sucked me in from the very start and had some very innovative ideas and some unusual and engaging gimmicks (such as the ragged text font representing the Noise). I found that, once started, I had to finish it in the least amount of time possible, which made me particularly unsociable over the weekend! It’s a huge rollercoaster of a book, with a relentless pace and terrific characters (I loved Manchee!) A few plot flaws, such as the apparent ability of Todd and Viola to go without sleep and food for large amounts of time, and I hated the author for the ending, but I must admit I’m going to devour the sequel when it comes out. All in all, a fantastic read
