The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness

Patrick Ness's The Knife of Never Letting Go has an odd title, and the premise is odd too, but it is an excellent fast-paced read. In Todd's world, a virus has caused everyone to be able to hear everyone else's thoughts, including animals. As a result the people in Todd's world (an earth-like planet sparsely populated from settlers from a dying Earth)live in a cloud of Noise. As Todd approaches adult-hood a series of events causes him to question everything he thought was true about his family, the planet he lives on, and his life. With his talking dog Manchee Todd sets out on a frightening journey to try to find safety, and quiet. As strange as all of this sounds, I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading the next two books in the series.
