BOOK REVIEWS
LIT CRIT
"He (Mayor Prentiss) is singularly memorable, since--as Ness describes him--he epitomizes "the banality of evil, the 'polite' evil that will convince you it's not evil, even as it's doing evil things to you."
"One can, of course, only hope that one makes the right choice, yet sometimes one doesn't: Todd and Viola both make wrong choices that have serious consequences. But both learn from them and continue to hope."
"The plot itself is full with adventure and suspense, surprising revelations. The Knife of Never Letting Go is a twisted coming of age story and a dystopian rolled into one."
Writing Style
VOICE

NESS ON VIOLA
"...rather than letting the language seem sophisticated, Ness has successfully harnessed Todd's voice with words such as 'ain't' and 'conversayshun'. Although this style may have become annoying in any other book, with Ness's work it is part of how we connect with the protagonist, and how his character shines through."
TOOLS
"Patrick Ness also does this thing-
Where he uses-
Hyphens-
In order to convey-
The distress-
Or the panic
Of the situation-
Which creates tension-
And draws us right into the experience of it all.'
