The Knife of Never Letting Go

The Knife of Never Letting Go  - Patrick Ness WHY I WANTED TO READ THIS NOVEL:
I'd heard good things about The Knife of Never Letting Go from fellow bloggers and it seemed to be in everyone's mailboxes for a while. I just couldn't resist seeing what all the hype was about.


The Relationship between Todd and Viola: It wasn't a love relationship, but the relationship they did have was just as strong.

Pacing: I felt the pacing was just right. The action was fast paced and had your heart racing but in other scenes, where it was needed, the pacing slowed so the characters could be built upon.
Hildy and Wilf: These are the two most memorable characters apart from the two main ones. I loved them both; they are both strong, unyielding and willing to help both Todd and Viola.

Aaron: I'm not sure I've hated a fictional character as much as I hated Aaron. Just reading the scenes he was in made my skin crawl.
The Ending: I understand that there's two more books in the series, but the ending of The Knife of Never Letting Go was so anticlimactic. I, at least, expected something major to happen to tide us over until The Ask and the Answer, but no such luck.

What a fast paced, exciting and engrossing read The Knife of Never Letting Go is! Why did it take me so long to actually pick this up!? I've already gobbled up its sequel, The Ask and the Answer, and I'm now I'm desperate to know how this story concludes in Monsters of Men.
