I really enjoed this new idea of a catastrophe ending the world as we know it. No aliens or disease involved but believeable nonethless. The struggle of a family makes one care for them. I am an avid reader of horror and scifi and could not put it down until the end. I am hoping for a sequel....

This was a really great book! I recommend it very much. The story is very well written and also has original concepts. You definitely care about the characters. Bravo.

It's amazingly good (if you've seen A Quiet Place you may get a bit aggravated), but the ending is a bit of a let-down.

So I watched the netflix movie The Silence first and then found out it was based off of a book. I liked the movie so I thought I would like the book too. The novel rotates between a teenage girl Ally who became deaf in a car accident when she was nine. And now the whole family is fluent in sign language. (Very handy when you want to communicate with others and need to remain silent.) The other side of the story is through her father's eyes as he struggles to keep his family safe and worries about them. Mysterious creatures have escaped from a cave that has been shut off for a very long time. These creatures are blind, but anything that makes noise they attack. And then they leave their eggs in their victims and multiply like crazy. You must be silent or they attack and kill you. Scary. I liked at the beginning of the chapters you would have little snippets of different things around the world, whether it was a BBC news broadcast, a Facebook update, tweet, etc, from around the world. This gave you an idea of what was going on in the rest of the world or how the creatures were spreading. It was bad. And scary. This reminded me a bit of Bird Box, and I liked both stories, both original in their own way. I noticed while reading the book, I myself wanted to stay quiet. I almost didn't even want to talk in between reading the chapters. It was an interesting idea. It makes you think what would happen to you and your family if this had happened.

This book had me at the edge of my seat, everything the family went through the emotions were high and the danger too real. I love books that show the true nature of humans when everything hits the fan and this book MOST DEFINITELY has that. It is told through the point of view of Ali a 14 year old girl and her Father Huw. How Huw protects his family through means he had never done before, and how Ali once again had to grow up and her little brother Jude as well, was painful yet beautiful to read. I only gave it four stars because I did NOT like the ending. A better conclusion would have been nice! But would recommend all the way!!
