"You know what my father always says, Todd Hewitt?" he leers up at me. "He says a knife is only as good as the one who wields it." p.258This was definitely an adventure book as well as a dystopian with some science fiction and war added in. It was a sad book and sometimes a funny book. It was a long book and I got a little tired of waiting for the secret of Prentisstown. That dragged on a little too long and I was getting impatient. I had half guessed it before it was told, but the other half was surprising. I liked Todd. He was such a boy and so very confused and nice and he tried so hard. And I liked Viola. She was very cool and smart. I liked how they stood up for each other. The villains were definitely designed to get me angry and I can't understand their motives except they are insane.
The ending was such a crazy cliffhanger. That usually makes me angry, but this one had me ordering the next book from the library. I have to find out what happens next. I have an idea of where the series is going so I can't wait to see if I'm right.
(highlight) SPOILER* I cried so much when Manchee the dog died. That was so sad with his Todd? Aw. Break my heart. And when Viola kills Aaron. That was sad too. There was so much sadness in this book
And how about Prentisstown men killing all the women. What a stupid thing to do. I guess it was out of spite and jealousy and fear, but it doesn't excuse them. No wonder they were exiled from the rest of the world. I really wonder now about the ending with Mayor Prentiss. I hope (I'm sure) Viola is alright. . *
