Synopsis

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?

Review

Hang on there a minute…….

This book was sooo good I can’t explain.

This has loads of good stuff in it including spacemen and a talking dog!! I know right, sounds like a complete disaster but it works

Todd is a young boy, he will be a man soon, he is twelve years and twelve months old, and will be 13 and a man in one months time.

Todd and every other man in Prentistown is plagued by ‘the noise’ where everyone can hear your thoughts, EVERY thought!

There are no women as they all died when they caught the virus when they landed on the new world.

The virus was spread by the Spackle, the alien race that lived there before and who they killed in the war, there is none left.

Todd has a dog called Manchee who is hands down the best character ever, as he is a talking dog!!

When the men caught the noise virus, all of the animals also started to talk, I mean really talk not just woof woof.

It reminded me of Doug from Disneys UP, (I even googled it to see if the book was written after, and guess what….it was BEFORE!)

The 1st paragraph is the funniest ever….

The first thing you find out when yer dog learns to talk is that dogs don’t got nothing much to say. About anything.
β€œNeed a poo, Todd.”
β€œShut up, Manchee.”
β€œPoo. Poo, Todd.”
β€œI said shut it.”

Classic!

Todd finds a secret that he wasn’t supposed to and had to run away from the town, he now has to leave where he grew up and everything he knows and find his way, however he doesn’t know where he is going or what he is running from.
All he has is a map and a book from his mother….trouble is, he can’t read.

The audio was brilliantly narrated by Nick Podehl, very funny when the dog was talking and all of the characters were well narrated, it even had a little singing in it.

A fab read with a huge cliffhanger at the end, get ready to queue up #2 straight afterwards!

Prepare to be amazed,
