    For my full review, visit me at have read books covering many fictional scenarios rape, graphic murders, paedophiles but this novel left me with a constant sickening feeling in my stomach I predicted how the story would unfold but, despite feeling so horrid, continued reading in the hope that the mood would lift If the topic of gas lighting makes you feel uncomfortable and is an unpleasant t

    Scattered, jumbled storySorry to say that I couldn t connect to this one at all There s something about the writing style that made it difficult to get into the story, and though there are elements of the plot that had potential, the execution was lacking that special something to make it work.The story follows Stella, a former child star, as she meets a guy and they begin a relationship that

    It s taken me a bit of time to get to this review because I found the central relationship quite hard to stomach due to past experience Daisy s depiction of gaslighting is spot on But The Silence is what they call a total banger and I read it in one sitting I m awed by the author s turn of phrase which elevated the book and while some of the plot pieces have been done before within this genre e.

    This is a great psychological thriller Stella meets Marco and slowly starts to fall in love with him He recognises her from being a child star in a sitcom and seems to have been a big fan Stella is encouraged by Marco to take a pill each day to calm her nerves but soon she s soon spaced out, she keeps losing her memory Marco encourages her to see a Doctor he knows but things go from bad to worse S

    This was my First Reads pick for the month of February.It s one thing to be a broken individual that someone could easily prey on It s quite another to be that AND painfully stupid That s the reason I could not finish this book Not only was it glaringly obvious from chapter one as to what was going on but we had to deal with a protagonist who is mentally and emotionally blind It was so frustrating

    I do t usually have such strong reactions to books I don t care for but this book drove me insane Not a single character was in any way like able or relatable The story was disconnected and confusing at times The supernatural element, in my opinion, was completely unnecessary and did harm than good Also, I m going to point out this is yet another story about an unreliable narrator, made unreliable by

  8. Charlie Morris Charlie Morris says:

    The Silence is a well written book and I will certainly read from Pearce in the future, but it s a plot that I ve read before There s a current trend of authors relying on an unreliable female narrative to help develop their thrillers so, unfortunately, it all felt obvious from the start, for me.The story reminds me a lot of The Wife Between Us, as you can easily make the assumptions that our female lead

    Part 1 My last book group read was The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry There were sentences and paras that I stopped to read again slowly because they were so beautifully written We all agreed that Sarah Perry s book is literature Then there are genre books which are page turners and people like them because they are quick exciting reads They make good films The Harry Potter books are not well written I don t

    Liked her writing style even though stream of consciousness in present tense usually makes me stop reading She used very creative metaphors.Problems were hated the MC She was so obtuse I wanted to strangle her There s only so long a character can be in denial before it s just not believable any I could have bought that the drugs were leaving her unable to think straight, or making her not care, but there real
