“…I think of the rifle that Cillian took from Mr. Prentiss Jr. and all the rifles that Mayor Prentiss and his men have locked away in the town and how all those guns against Cillian’s stolen rifle and the few others we got in the house ain’t gonna be much of a fight for very long and it gets me to wondering what the bigger bangs were and I realize they were probably Cillian blowing up the generators to confuse the men and make everyone’s Noise so loud they can’t hear even the whisper of mine way out here.

All this for me to get away.”

The Knife of Never Letting Go is one of my favorite books. Todd Hewitt grew up in Prentiss Town with no women and the thoughts of every man being broadcast 24/7. As Todd nears his birthday that will mark him a man, he begins to notice the darkness in the Noise of those around him and that the men have been keeping a horrible secret. Read more here at goodreads, but really you should just go buy it now. Just writing this makes me want to reread it again. Hmm….

  1. Thought I’d already commented on yours, but I don’t see my comment here. I’ve seen this book around, but didn’t quite know what it was about. It does sound really good! Thanks for stopping by my post earlier.
