I couldn't put it down. I just needed to stay in the story with Todd. And Manchee. It's sad and frightening and I need to know how it ends. ( )

I really loved this book! Set in the future, Todd Hewitt is a young boy living in a time where there are no longer any women - but what they do have is "noise". Infected with a virus that, to Todd's understanding, killed the women but left the men with the ability to hear everyone's thoughts, Todd finds himself in danger (but doesn't know why). This is a tightly written novel that leaves you wanting the next book in the trilogy in your hot little hands!

(and it has the best talking dog, ever.) ( )

This is more Golden Compass than Hunger Games. I got the second one before I finished the first one because I knew I would be mad if it had to wait. ( )

Epigraph
If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.
George Eliot, Middlemarch
