the knife of never letting go

Book 92/100 - The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

I only have good things to say about this book. It was so good that I powered through it in one sitting. Ness did a fantastic job of building the world. I loved the style, the fast pace and the way the characters were written. It was tense and exciting and full of surprises; those good kind of surprises that make perfect sense in the context of the story.

Overall, it's a well-crafted and thoughtful book perfect for young and old readers. A lot of YA book I read lately feel like they're designed to appeal to the older market, the twilight crowd. This book reads like it's aimed squarely for younger people and it's so well done that adults like it too. It balances shocking brutality with very subtle and thoughtful character actions perfectly. I have to give it 9/10.

I'm glad I bought the trilogy all at once and I can't wait to start the next installment.
