The Knife of Never Letting Go  - Patrick Ness

Great so far.


Compulsively readable.


The mystery behind this world is distracting, walking into work I kept trying to piece together what it could possibly be...


Patrick Ness' writing -  I like that even though the word choice is simple,  what he says stays with you.


We don't say nothing more. What else is there to say? Everything and nothing. You can't say everything, so you don't say nothing. - p.53


But a knife ain't just a thing, is it? It's a choice, it's something you do. A knife says yes or no, cut or not, die or don't.  A knife takes a decision out of your hand and puts it in the world and it never goes back again. - p. 84
