Something for the weekend...

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

For those finding the future is dark and dystopian after reading the Hunger Games, The Knife of Never Letting Go is a great book to try next.

The first book in the Chaos Walking trilogy begins in Prentisstown, a small rural settlement in the New World where there are supposedly no women, and a virus contracted by the men means they can hear each other's thoughts all of the time. When the hero, Todd Hewitt, finds a spot of moving silence in the midst of the 'Noise', he is forced to run away from his home town and eventually finds the cause of the silence: a female. The first book in this trilogy is the story of their flight.

Exciting and original, this is a great book for teenagers and adults, and one you should read before the film comes out to get ahead of the hype!
