‘Prentisstown isn’t like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee — whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not — stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden — a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.
But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?’
Before I even get into this review, I just have one thing to say; Manchee!!
As always with book reviews, I’ll start by talking a little about the story. I absolutely loved the concept of this book. The whole idea that you can hear all men’s thoughts and that there’s no women is very unique and different.
What I loved most about this book is that throughout the book, you couldn’t sit still and you had no idea what was coming next. There were plot twists all over the place and I just loved it. As well as plot twists being all over the place, so were my emotions.
The relationship between the two main characters was perfect and very believable. Too bad that the main character, Todd wasn’t relatable at all. In fact, he was such an annoying, naive little boy that I wanted to scream at him. Then there’s Manchee the dog. I’m pretty sure everyone loved Manchee.
The book left you wanting more and now I can’t wait to pick up the next book in the series and get reading again.
