Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee - whose thoughts Todd can hear, too, whether he wants to or not - stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden - a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives. But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?

Really, really good!
It's just an absolutely fantastic story, really poignant and moving, with a fast paced story line, that makes you want more. Great depth of character too, very believeable, as they have very real hopes and faults, and I found myself loving them nevertheless.
Humphrey Bower was an absolutely fantastic reader, he really brought the characters alive, and I think I wouldn't have liked the story quite so much if i had just read the book.
