The Quality of Silence - Rosamund Lupton

The Quality of Silence is completely different to the type of books I usually read, but I may well choose others in this genre again.

The book covered a number of different topic areas including things like deafness, stalking, parenting, etc. Most of which had me forming opinions and often arguing with the characters. I found the portrayal of deafness, and the strength of the youngster in dealing with it, using Twitter to give her a voice.

The stalking element had me freaking out, with tangible fear for Yasmin and her daugher. Although I was fearful for the two of them throughout. I even learned loads about the Arctic and the native wildlife, which was fascinating.

The book is not to badly paced, although I did find it a tad slow and tedious in places. Yasmin and her daughter are both well developed and believable too.

With the fear, suspense and a few surprises, you’ll be glued to this book from beginning to end. A great read for anyone. Enjoy.

NB: I received this book free in return for an honest review.
