YOUR NOISE REVEALS YOU, TODD HEWITT.
Part two of the Chaos Walking 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 tense and desperate 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, aimed at overthrowing the tyrannical government. Todd, meanwhile, faces impossible choices when forced to join the mayor’s oppressive new regime. In alternating narratives — Todd’s gritty and volatile; Viola’s calmer but equally stubborn — 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 loved it, maybe even more than the first one. It's just so wonderfully written, you can't stop reading! Patrick Ness is a new shining star and I am a huge fan of his writing style. The book was absolutely magnetizing, I loved the fact that we could read the whole story from two perspectives - Todd's and Viola's. It is definitely one of my top favorite books (of YA genre) and I am 100% sure I will read just about anything that Patrick Ness will produce in the future - he is brilliant!
