Title: The Quality of Silence
Author: Rosamund Lipton
Publisher: Crown Publishing, Feb. 16, 2016
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
Isolation, darkness. A wife in denial, chasing what only she believes. A vulnerable young girl, oblivious and trusting. Then there are the killers closing in as they cross vicious, ice-bound Alaska when no one else will.
Arrrrgh! I am on fire for the first 80% of this book! So good, so thrilling, so tight and descriptive in its chilling (literally) buildup. No matter how disappointing the ending, and it will not disappoint everyone, still read the book for that sweet suspenseful ride. Honestly, it peaks slightly too early, and once it reaches a certain point, (and I never give up spoilers in my reviews), it is as if it lost its way as a thriller and used the momentum to stage a protest lecture, which in light of the fantastic psychological buildup, made it fall a bit short of its potential.
Read it anyway, everyone I have told to read it has not been sorry they did, whether they liked the ending or not.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this honest review.
