Summery:Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him — something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn’t she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd’s gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.
I been wanting to read this book for a while but was scared i wouldn’t enjoy it. I love dystopian books, but this one is different then most. I finally give up and said what the hell and bought the book, and i don’t regret. Reading this book has been a journey for me. I went threw stages of anger and sadness to the point the book left me in tears. The wording in this book is hard to follow along with at first but once you get into the book you just get used to it.
The story is full of action pack adventures. Lots of twist in turns to entertain everyone. Lots of moments that will shock you. I loved the whole concept of the story. Todd and like every men on the planet have the Noise. You can hear every thought. Todd and his dog are on the run after Todd found a rip of silence in the mess of noises. Well that silence happens to be a girl named Viola Eade. Todd always thought the germs that brought the noise killed all the women. But soon Todd learns that the truth has been hiding for him right under his nose.
The story was very intense and heart pumping for the most part. I was a little disappointed on the fact that wanted Todd and Viola to kiss or confess there love! it drove me crazy. there was lot of moments where i was like ” There gonna kiss i know it” but it never happens. The ending ends with a cliff hanger and i don’t think i am over it yet, but it might take me some time to recover….
I started reading this book last night and finished it in the morning…yes that’s right i haven’t slept because i got so zoned into this book i didn’t want to put it down until i finished it. I was a little shocked by how much i LOVED this book. I 100% recommend this book to everyone. I had a lot of tears reading this book. but the tears was worth it. Can’t wait to read the 2nd book!
