May's Reading Power Book Club: The Knife Of Never Letting Go
The Kikkoman calendar in the office say it's May, although the window seems to suggest October but we'll stick with the thing on the wall.
Want some blurb? Of course you do!
Todd Hewitt is the last boy in Prentisstown.
But Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in a constant, overwhelming, never-ending Noise. There is no privacy. There are no secrets.
Or are there?
Just one month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd unexpectedly stumbles upon a spot of complete silence.
Which is impossible.
Prentisstown has been lying to him.
And now he's going to have to run...
And if that doesn't whet your appetite how about the news that acclaimed screenwriter Charlie Kauffman (he did the amazing Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) is writing the big-budget movie adaptation? Many people in the industry reckon it'll be the next Hunger Games, so be ahead of the curve and head down your local library to pick up a copy. Click here to find all the libraries in Cardiff.
