add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: Part two of the literary sci-fi thriller follows a boy and a girl who are caught in a warring town where thoughts can be heard — and secrets are never safe.

Reaching the end of their flight in THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO, Todd and Viola did not find healing and hope in Haven. They found instead their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss, waiting to welcome them to New Prentisstown. There they are forced into separate lives: Todd to prison, and Viola to a house of healing where her wounds are treated. Soon Viola is swept into the ruthless activities of the Answer, while Todd faces impossible choices when forced to join the mayor’s oppressive new regime. In alternating narratives the two struggle to reconcile their own dubious actions with their deepest beliefs. Torn by confusion and compromise, suspicion and betrayal, can their trust in each other possibly survive?

I fell in love with the first book The Knife of Never Letting Go in the series. Patrick Ness really knows how to get me hooked. When reading the book you kinda struggle with who to trust and what’s right from wrong. You watch Todd go threw so much struggle to try and protect Viola. in  the beginning of the book there is this quote by Friedrich Nietzsche.

“Battle not with monsters

lest you become a monster

and if you gaze into Abyss

the Abyss gazes in you”

The quote was so spot on with this series and what Todd has to go threw. I had this quote stuck in my mind while i was reading it. From that quote and when the story’s starts it seriously brought tears in my eyes. I just wanted to hug poor Todd so much it hurt. 

Todd and Viola’s Relationship is so heartbreaking and freaking sad. Todd cares so much for Viola that he would do any thing for her and struggles to keep her safe. The Thing poor Todd has to go threw this book was just sad. Like i couldn’t be able to do what he has to-do. Todd is in Love with Viola and doesn’t even freaking realize it and it seriously drives me freaking crazy. I need to know if they eventually Kiss and confess there love if they don’t in the next book then i will throw it out the window, i swear i will.

The book was full of suspense and intense nail gripping moments. I am pretty sure i almost had a few heart attacks wile reading this one. My feelings were crushed a few times. I just love the way Patrick wrote the book. He really truly knows how to write a freaking awesome book.

What was really cool about this book in the series is the fact it’s in Todd’s and Viola’s point of view. You to read what both of them were going threw and see there struggles. The ending was so freaking crazy. it ends with this huge cliff hangar that made me want to scream so i will  be getting my hands on Monsters of men like asap. 

Overall i would’ve liked more Todd and Viola moments but i still loved the whole story and the concept of it. There is a lot of action and suspense. It was a crazy amazing roller coaster ride. I recommend this book series every day of my life.

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!
