The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. This was a great read. I enjoyed reading about Todd, Manchee the dog and Viola. I was so sad when Manchee died.The first person point of view made this read more immediate and somehow urgent. Tod and Viola are barely in their teens and their emotions are expressed in a childlike way. We feel Todd's hurt, his joys and agonies. There was a lot of violence, and deliberate misspellings as we are in Todd's point of view because that's the way he thinks these words are spelt. My only disappointment is that ending was incomplete as this is a series. I'll have to get the next book to find out what happens.
