The main character is Todd Hewitt, who is thirteen years old at the time. He lives in Prentisstown, and is the only boy among the town of men, for all of the women were wiped out in an alien attack. In the same attack, all of the men got infected with some sort of bug called the Noise, which makes every single thought of any man heard as if he were speaking them. The men have no control over this whatsoever, and all of the animals are infected too. So therefore, there is NO quiet place in the land.
Until Todd finds one, that is.
Then Todd's world turns upside down, and he must flee his menfolk to stay alive, along with his dog Manchee. Along the way, he makes a huge discovery, and the adventure begins.
This book was very hard to put down, and the dialect and personality of Todd was entertaining. There is a good chunk of action, suspense, sadness, shock, and relief. There was a bit of violence, for it is a world full of just MEN (XD).
But it added to the book, and I feel it was well-written.
So overall, I would definitely recommend this book.
