The Knife of Never Letting Go

The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness So glad to have finished this. Found the lack of character development hugely frustrating - oh lets get the main character into the same problem 6 times with no real change to how it turns out...
Other frustrations - he says, she says, it says, says says; asking instead of question. There are others I just don't want to think about them right now.

Redeeming features - Manchee. That's about it. Interesting concept with noise, but doesn't make up for my overwhelming feeling of disappointment with this.

1st book I've really struggled to want to finish for a long time.
