The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

Description fron Goodreads:
Todd Hewitt is the last boy in Prentisstown.
But Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in a constant, overwhelming, never-ending Noise. There is no privacy. There are no secrets.
Or are there?
Just one month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd unexpectedly stumbles upon a spot of complete silence.
Which is impossible.
Prentisstown has been lying to him.
And now he's going to have to run...

One thing I can say about this book is that it has never-ending action and twists in every chapter. Every time you think that Todd has over come one danger, he's in even more and still running.
Patrick Ness' writing style takes a while to get used to. It is unlike anything I have ever read and not exactly sure what the style is called to refer to. But like Priscilla at TheReadables  says "read the first couple of pages while at the story, and you'll get it" The link above she also gives a very loving very energetic review of this book.
My favorite aspect of the book was the characters. I found them all very awesome, even the mean guys. You wanted the battle to play out. I have to say my favorites were Manchee, his dog and Viola. This style of writing takes awhile to get into and I also had trouble focusing on the audiobook as well. I originally picked up the audiobook and found it jumping all over the place and hard to follow, so I picked up a copy of the book and figured out it's written that way. I attempted the audiobook again and found that I really did enjoy the story from both aspects, written and word.
So if you looking for a different kind of tale, with lots of action, loss and heartache told from a boys perspective check this one out!
