Daniela | 429 comments I also read it this month and agree with David 'twisty plot'. I'm glad that I couldn't really predict the twists which is hard to find in a book these days. Anyone else feel a similarity between The Knife of Never Letting Go? I don't know why I did but I did


message 5: by David (new)

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 1040 comments Nope, didn't get that vibe, but as you know, I'm obsessed with Chaos Walking and nothing can compare!

Daniela | 429 comments I think it was just arriving at a place you thought was supposed to be safe and it turning out to be, well, not. Becaue I can't really think of any other similarities.

Did u start rereading it?


message 31: by Daniela (new)

Daniela | 429 comments Unfortunately no :( I got caught up doing a read and review while reading two other books. I only read it a few weeks ago though so it's pretty fresh in my mind anyway!


message 32: by Hawazen (new)

Hawazen (zonna) Good luck...what are u reading?


message 33: by Daniela (new)

Daniela | 429 comments Just finished Fahrenheit 451 which was brilliant. Now I'm reading The Raven Boys and The War for Banks Island. I'm also really glad I did that read and review, the book I read (The Northland Chronicles: A Stranger North) was awesome! How's The Darkest Minds going?


message 34: by Riya (new)

Riya | 1876 comments Nice Daniela!!! I got an EARC of the second Raven BOys book, so I'm starting my reread of it in the next few days!!! And I'm about to start The Darkest Minds really soon!!


message 35: by Hawazen (new)

Hawazen (zonna) Nice I will add them to my to read list.
Well I am loving the characters and I like the way each new character is being introduced.
This spoiler is for both Shatter Me and The Darkest Minds
(view spoiler) Plus I loved how twists keep coming out of nowhere


message 36: by Hawazen (last edited Sep 02, 2013 02:54PM) (new)

Hawazen (zonna) One more thing I am in chapter 23 and (view spoiler)


message 37: by Daniela (new)

Daniela | 429 comments Oh yea, I'd never noticed that connection to Shatter Me, well spotted! As for your second comment *smiles knowingly* :P


message 38: by Ayesha (new)

Ayesha | 50 comments Is this book similar to Shatter me? Hope that romance doesn't take up majority of the plot.


message 39: by Heather (new)

Heather DeChaume | 46 comments Just got done reading it today and I really liked it. There isn't anything I didn't like about this book, but it didn't completely blow me away. Definitely recommendable, though.


message 40: by Vikkii (new)

Vikkii Stegen | 7 comments Okay that book was incredible! My heart is still reeling from the end of the book but it didn't change my opinion of it at all! I really need to get the next book "Never Fade" as soon as possible!!!!
