This book was very entertaining. I liked some parts which were suspenseful yet others bored me. The ending wasn't what I had expected and was disappointing. Overall, a good read.

The Knife Of Never Letting Go is a great book. Patrick Ness did a very good job on trying to show what's it is like to have the "noise" and developing the characters with their own unique backgrounds. It also shows the bond between Todd and Viola who before were uncomfortable and awkward with each other are now very close. Todd even tries to find her when she is kidnapped despite his own well-being in great danger. So it shows the friendship between these two people as well. I think this is a great book overall, even though I found it slightly boring near the beginning but it becomes interesting halfway through the book. I'd recommend this book to other readers who are looking for a good book to read.

This was a very interesting book, once yo start reading, its hard to stop. There is a deep meaning in this book that the author puts in a very interesting way. Overall, i think this book is worth reading at least once.

The Knife of Never letting go is an interesting book to me. The language is easy to understand and I really like the ways of writing. Basically, the concept is good, what makes a man? what is good? what is evil? and what happens to people's lives if these unreal things happens? It's obviously that everyone's keeping a secret. However, I don't like the parts that are too violent and bloody.

This book is easy to read and understand. It has many twists and surprises. It shows how everybody is imperfect and do things that are silly. It shows that it is us that has to make a choice between good or evil. This book is also set in a different environment than what we can imagine with aliens, yet at the same time it is similar to the earth we are in. It is good because it shows us different things in life. The thing that i don't really like is that it ends with a cliff hanger.

This book was amazing. This book had me spellbound with its plot and the concept of the world that they live in. At first you would think it's a bit boring, but as the story develops it gets more and more interesting. The concept was also very new and unusual for me. But it seemed like a breath of fresh air, when I read the book. It also explore honesty in new ways, I have not really about before. The fighting parts were really gory at times, so I didn't like it that much. But anyway this was a wonderful book! It's a must read :D

The knife of never letting go is a book written by a person who has a very large imagination, it features semi-talking dogs and what not. A truly readable book.

This book could be considered to be a very interesting but thoughtful book. It has many new ideas, and characters. You can't out the book down until you finish it. Its that good.

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. The idea of "noise" was unique and interesting, and the story full of twists.

A very complicated book where everything is turned upside down. It seems like it could actually happen in an impossible way!
