The Knife of Never letting Go by Patrick Ness is about a world where most of the women are gone because of a “disease” which also causes all male creatures to have their thought come out into verbal format for everyone to hear called the “Noise”. The story follows Todd, the only boy left in the town where everyone else was already a man. This “disease” was said to be from an alien species called the Spackle that had used biological weapons against humans during their war, wiping out all the females.
This book was among one of my favorite books with the many plot twists and properties of “Noise” that I had never thought of before. It also showed how many figures would often make up stories in order to cover up a dark history or to turn a group’s hostility to another group. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read dystopian fiction and is okay with grammar errors.
