New Books for September

Mrs Dourley is currently reading...


Another interesting idea that caught my imagination, the Knife of Never Letting Go is a young adult book set on a different planet where colonists live in small place called Prentisstown.  


Prentisstown consists only of men due to a war with the indigenous creatures of the planet that left the men able to hear each other's thoughts and killed all the women.


Or did it?

Mrs Dourley's most recent review


Barnaby Brocket was born to perfectly normal parents thank you very much, and they don't appreciate it at all when he refuses to remain grounded, instead floating up towards the sky whenever he is not tethered.


Following a trip to Mrs MacQuarrie's chair Barnaby finds himself floating away into the sky with nothing to stop him.  What follows is a delightful story about friendship and acceptance.  The story is well written with lots of colourful characters and some truly astonishing events.  I really enjoyed reading this.  The writing is descriptive and paced well to keep the reader involved.


Highly recommended


Five thumbs up out of five for me.
