October 29, 2010The only problem I had with this book was Todd's way of talking. (I don't think first-person books should be written in dialect, because our way of talking always sounds both natural and neutral to us. It only sounds like dialect to other people.) Other than that, I loved it. The ver...

3 starsGreat premise, but I had a problem with some of the details. I hated what happened to Manchee, and almost stopped reading at that point. Also, really Ben? This book relied on that most annoying trope in YA fiction. There's the We've been keeping a big secret from you, but every time ther...

The characters came off obnoxious and the plot-line was just weird for me, I mean talking dogs? But it grew on me, the narrator r...

Sigh. I need to stop starting new series book. They will end me. I have kind of eyed this book for a while, and almost bought it several times, but one day I had a coupon and a dream...so I got it. And it was an interesting experience. Really. A strange book. The story begins with Todd, not too ...

Reminded me a little of Ender's Game and a typical Star Trek away mission wrapped up in a coming of age series. The dog talking reminded me way too much of Up (the Disney movie). I can still hear "Poo, Todd?" in the back of my head. Thanks Patrick Ness. Thank you very much It's a great quick read an...
