A to Z Challenge 2015: K - The Knife of Never Letting Go

Welcome to week three!

Or ... week two and a half!

How was your day off?

I had to work, so it was really only a day off from the challenge for me.

Patrick Ness is an American born author living in the UK. Known mainly for A Monster Calls, the Chaos Walking trilogy was how I was introduced to his work.

Today's 2015 April A to Z Blogging Challenge story for the letter K:

The Knife of Never Letting Go

Here is the summary, from Goodreads:

Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.

Authors: Patrick Ness

That's it! Please come back tomorrow!

I've heard about this book quite a lot but didn't know the full blurb. Now I might check it out.

While I think telepathy would be cool, that sounds like overload.

My friend just recommended this book to me last week! Now I have to read it!

This series is one of the really good ones. In the beginning I thought it was going to be overload with all of the "eavesdropping" but it turned out to be a unique and great story. Nice choice Matt!!

That sounds quite interesting. Most of all I find the name of the book intriguing.

Love your blog theme.
So ... have you figured out the query quandary yet?

Rebecca Douglass said...

Sounds like an interesting book--though it could really be horror, I think!

Mina Burrows said...
