#BOOKS & LYRICS: Post No. 3

If I could pick a theme song for this next book this song would be it.

This is just a little snippet of the lyrics:

Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap,

“Mm, what’d you say?
Mm, that you only meant well
Well of course you did
Mm, what’d you say?
Mm, that it’s all for the best
Of course it is
Mm, what’d you say?
Mm, that it’s just what we need
You decided this
Mm, what’d you say?”

The Book:

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

Find It Here on Amazon

Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him — something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn’t she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd’s gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.

I loved this book, it reads like you’re watching a movie (which it will be in 2020! Starring Daisy Ridley (Star Wars) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man)) and I feel like the song just encompasses the mood of the story.

Do you agree? Have you read this book or heard the song? Tell me all about it!

One Fun Thing ~

This book has the best opening ever:

“The first thing you find out when yer dog learns to talk is that dogs don’t got nothing much to say. About anything.

“Need a poo, Todd,””

Talking dogs! You’re intrigued now, right?
