Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO: CHAOS WALKING Book One, by Patrick Ness and published by Walker Books Ltd., London, in 2008. With full numberline 2 4 6 8 10 9 7 5 3 1 on the copyright page.

The book is in near fine condition (Clean red/orange/yellow decorated boards with black lettering on the spine and front), with only very minor wear to the decorated clear dust jacket which is not price clipped. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Patrick Ness is the author of the award-winning Chaos Walking trilogy plus two acclaimed works of fiction for adults. His writing career exploded in 2008 with The Knife of Never Letting Go, which was published to critical acclaim and won the 2008 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and the 2008 Booktrust Teenage Prize.

The second book in the trilogy The Ask and the Answer is, if anything, even more sensational, winning the 2009 Costa Children's Book Award.

Monsters of Men, the third and final book in the Chaos Walking trilogy, was published in May, 2010. Ness is one of seven writers to win two Medals (no one has won three) and the second to win consecutively.

In the Chaos Walking series, the story is set in a dystopian world where all living creatures can hear each other's thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise. The series is named after a line in the first book: "The Noise is a man unfiltered, and without a filter, a man is just chaos walking."

The series consists of a trilogy of novels. The Knife of Never Letting Go inaugurated the Chaos Walking series, was celebrated by critics, and won annual awards including the Booktrust Teenage Prize, the Guardian Award, and the James Tiptree, Jr. Award..

"Todd Hewitt is the last boy in Prentisstown.

But Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in a constant, overwhelming, never-ending Noise. There is no privacy. There are no secrets.

Or are there?

Just one month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd unexpectedly stumbles upon a spot of complete silence. Which is impossible.

Prentisstown has been lying to him.

And now he's going to have to run...

Astonishingly powerful and breathtakingly exciting, The Knife of Never Letting Go is an unflinching novel about the dangerous choices of growing up."

'A stunning debut...As compelling as it is original.' - The Times

'Pure inventiveness and excitement.' - Booklist

'Darkly imagined and brilliantly created, the painful dystopian setting of a world full of noise in which all thoughts can be heard as if spoken is the background to this tense coming of age story.' - The Guardian
