**REVIEW** The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton

q o s


On 24th November Yasmin and her deaf daughter Ruby arrived in Alaska. Within hours they were driving alone across a frozen wilderness

Where nothing grows

Where no one lives

Where tears freeze

And night will last for another 54 days.

They are looking for Ruby’s father.

Travelling deeper into a silent land.

They still cannot find him.

And someone is watching them in the dark.

My Review 

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you for approving me

I have never read any of Luptons books before, but I keep hearing so many good things about her books, so I wanted to like this book so very much. But to be honest I was left disappointed. I found some of the plot so unrealistic and found my self going ”what”!! I found myself so tempted to start skimming pages because I started to get bored.

Ten year old Ruby one of the protagonists was deaf I found this aspect of the book really engaging and interesting to read, as I have never read any books with a deaf protagonist.

Clearly Lupton has done her research and I did find the bits describing Alaska fascinating and the names of places were very familiar from Ice Road Truckers and I could quite easily work out where they were.

I still would like to read other work by this author before making a decision on whether I like her style of writing
