  • "Absolutely brilliant"

    Overall

    I've just finished this, and as soon as the last word finished I wanted to download the next in the series. It is quite simply fantastic. Large amounts of imaginative ideas, characters that I cared about, touching relationships, dark themes. After a slowish start, turned out to be one of the best books I've heard. My wife occasionally caught me stood stock still in the Kitchen as something particularly suspenseful happened.

    Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee - whose thoughts Todd can hear, too, whether he wants to or not - stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden - a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives. But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?

    Sarah says: "Awesome! A true modern classic."
  • "Brilliant"

    Overall

    Absolutely fabulous book - not one to put a big smile on your face, but does ask some big questions. I found it quite difficult to read at times due to the trials and tribulations that some of the characters go through.

    The narrator is absolutely fabulous, I really can't say enough good things about him, every voice is differentiated, and at times it's difficult to believe they're all coming from one person. I'd personally have him do all books from now on!

    Hugely recommended.

  • "Really impressive ending and great ..."

    Overall

    Again, the narration is fantastic by humphrey bower, he is the best I've come across for narration, each character immediately clear.

    The best description I can come up with for this trilogy is suggest you imagine the 'His Dark Materials' trilogy combined with the tone of 'The Road'.
    That description is intended as a compliment as I enjoyed both of those immensely. Heartily recommend this trilogy.

But then a third voice breaks into the battle, one bent on revenge....

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts.

    By the author of the acclaimed Passion Blue, a Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Book of 2012 and "a rare, rewarding, sumptuous exploration of artistic passion," comes a fascinating companion novel.

    Artistically brilliant, Giulia is blessed-or cursed-with a spirit's gift: she can hear the mysterious singing of the colors as she creates them in the convent workshop of Maestra Humilitá. It's here that Giulia, forced into the convent against her will, has found unexpected happiness and rekindled her passion to become a painter-an impossible dream for any woman in 15th century Italy.

    But when a dying Humilitá bequeaths Giulia her most prized possession-the secret formula for the luminously beautiful paint called Passion blue-Giulia realizes she's in danger from those who have long coveted the famous color. Faced with the prospect of a life in the convent barred from painting as punishment for keeping Humilitá's secret, Giulia is struck by a desperate idea: What if she disguises herself as a boy? Could she make her way to Venice and find work as an artist's apprentice?

    Along with the truth of who she is, Giulia carries more dangerous secrets: the exquisite voices of her paint colors and the formula for Humilitá's Passion blue. And Venice, she discovers, with its gilded palazzos and masked balls, has secrets of its own. Trapped in her false identity in this dream-like place where reality and reflection are easily confused, and where art and ambition, love and deception hover like dense fog, can Giulia find her way?

    This stunning, compelling novel explores timeless themes of love and illusion, gender and identity as it asks the question: what does it mean to risk everything to pursue your passion?
