#167 - "Edge" by Thomas Blackthorne

You thought Big Brother was tough? Try Knife Edge -- the reality TV show where wannabe knife fighters are the celebrities in a nation going to hell. Britain, tomorrow. The ultimate response to knife crime has been instituted by a bankrupt government: duelling with knives has now been legalised. On Saturday nights, the nation sit down to watch the countries best fighters slash it out on prime time. When a young boy with hoplophobia (the fear of weaponry) runs away from home, his father hires a former special forces agent to find him. With the help of the boy's psychiatrist, Josh Cumberland delves into the dark underbelly of the knife culture that has infected his country with no guarantee that the boy is even still alive!

My rating: 4.5 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
This is really good book! I enjoyed it a lot & the ending I didn't saw it coming! The future world that the author created was interesting & I liked it! I liked the characters & the storyline. I'm definitely looking forward to the sequel Point. Also, Thomas Blackthorne is actually the pseudonym of John Meaney & this is the first of his books that I've read, but definitely won't be the last! I highly recommend it!
