The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton


Thrillingly suspenseful and atmospheric, The Quality of Silence is the story of Yasmin, a beautiful astrophysicist, and her precocious deaf daughter, Ruby, who arrive in a remote part of Alaska to be told that Ruby’s father, Matt, has been the victim of a catastrophic accident. Unable to accept his death as truth, Yasmin and Ruby set out into the hostile winter of the Alaskan tundra in search of answers. But as a storm closes in, Yasmin realizes that a very human danger may be keeping pace with them. And with no one else on the road to help, they must keep moving, alone and terrified, through an endless Alaskan night.

I gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars, not because it was badly written or because the storyline was boring, it just was not for me. It was set up as a very interesting and enticing story but the more I got into it, the more disinterested I became.  I felt as though the way Alaska was portrayed wasn’t accurate and seemed a bit overdone.

The characters were likable but not memorable, I just wasn’t thrilled with this story. Its well written but not for me. If you like books that are repetitive in narration then this may be for you. I found that it was kind of like the parts of “New Moon” by Stephanie Meyers where Jacob was talking, I just wanted it to be over.
