A coming of age dystopian where people can hear each other's thoughts. Sounds good, right? That's what I thought.
At the start of the book there's a lot of mystery surrounding where the women went and why. However, it soon starts to unravel as soon as Todd meets Viola. I knew why as soon as Todd became annoyed with Viola's quietness.
Then there's Todd. I don't see how he is a loveable character. In fact, I preferred Manchee, the dog.
The storyline in itself is okay, but can feel dragged out.
Verdict: All in all I was pretty disappointed as it had rave reviews elsewhere. I guess I'm not a Patrick Ness fan.
