I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

The Knife of Never Letting Go

The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness I started out really liking this book, but it started to drag about midway through. Even though Todd and Viola were constantly on the move, it all seemed a bit forced. In another review someone compared Aaron to the energizer bunny, which I think is an apt description. There was also a lot of unnecessary cursing. If it doesn't add anything to the story, then it isn't necessary. I will probably finish up the series, but I guess part of me feels like I was deceived since the overall rating for this book was fairly high.
