"Waiting on" Wednesdays (5)

This meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Stop by and see her blog.

This week, I have been thinking about/wishing for/wanting a book that I can't get my grubby little paws on for another two weeks. That book, the sequel to The Knife of Never Letting Go is The Ask and the Answer.

from Goodreads:

We were in the square, in the square where I'd run, holding her, carrying her, telling her to stay alive, stay alive till we got safe, till we got to Haven so I could save her - But there weren't no safety, no safety at all, there was just him and his men...Fleeing before a relentless army, Todd has carried a desperately wounded Viola right into the hands of their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss. Immediately separated from Viola and imprisoned, Todd is forced to learn the ways of the Mayor's new order. But what secrets are hiding just outside of town? And where is Viola? Is she even still alive? And who are the mysterious Answer? And then, one day, the bombs begin to explode...
"The Ask and the Answer" is a tense, shocking and deeply moving novel of resistance under the most extreme pressure. This is the second title in the "Chaos Walking" trilogy.

Mentioned in this thread:
The Knife of Never Letting Go
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...


  1. I really do need to read these! That summary of The Knife Of Never Letting Go alone tells me I'll love these books. Nice pick!

  2. I love dystopic fiction, and The Knife of Never Letting Go is one of the most compelling and different ones I've read in a long time.

  3. Loved The Knife and as soon as I finish Skinned I'm starting on the Ask!

  4. I have it headed my way AS SOON as it comes out, and everything else (work, food, shower, sleep) is getting pushed aside for it. The countdown has begun...


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
