Today's Read: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

I'm the only boy left in Prentisstown, and it stinks cuz men don't talk much to boys; I have the dam dog, but he's kinda stoopid and sorta thinks of poo and squirrels all day. In exactly one month I'll be a man and I'll do man stuff. We got 146 men and me, no women. I gotta listen to each of those men all day, all night cuz Noise is everywhere and all them thoughts are in my head all the dam time. Some guys just vanish cuz they just gotta get away. But there ain't nowhere to go.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

My Noise churns and bubbles like a stew on the boil till finally I have to stop for a minute to calm myself down a little.

There's just no such thing as silence. Not here, not nowhere. Not when yer asleep, not when yer by yerself, never. (p. 17)

This might have been my favorite book from last year. But the sequel is even better. There are reviews of both plus a short interview with Patrick Ness on ReadSpace.

Great! I read this one and am looking very much forward to hear what you think about it. I am reading the second book in the trilogy right now, and will hopefully finish in a few days so that I can write my review for that one. But looking forward to read yours!

Louise 11/17/09, 4:14 PM  

Just finished number two and will have the review up in a few days.
