The book of never letting go..........,
This review is from: The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking) (Paperback)
Todd Hewitt is the last boy in Prentisstown. In Prentisstown everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts; it is called 'noise'. All men and animals on new world have noise. The thoughts never stop. Just one month away from the birthday that will make Todd a man. He is sent to the swamp; whilst he is there he stumbles on a spot of complete silence. It is there where the real story starts. He is sent away from Prentisstown, he doesn't know why. Less than half way there he finds a girl, (the first girl he's ever seen). The girl has no noise, the girl is the silence. With only his Mothers diary, and a small supply of food he has to travel right around New world. Running away from their worst enemy. Mayor Prentiss and his growing army.
I recommend this book to people 11 and over. It is a pacing and heartbreaking story. On their journey they fight a crazy preacher, Aaron. He lives though crocodiles, stabbing, drowning and much more. This book is followed by the ask and the answer. Then monsters of men. It was the book of never letting go.
