Daily Book Talk

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

A nice suspenseful run with colorful characters, a creative setting (offworld, though still earthlike) and intrigue that kept you guessing. Loved the idea of thoughts that could or could not be heard. At one point the author says through one of the main characters, "If I could not make you listen to all these thoughts, I would." Made me laugh, since we all have way too many thoughts running through our minds.  The genocide of the natives needed a powerful counter attack to prove the depth of the writing. I picked up the Ask and the Answer right away to see where Ness would go.
