Hooked on Books

Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

They Hunt by Sound...

The Silence - Tim Lebbon

Omg I am so pissed! I just want to throw this book right now. The story was perfect up until the last few pages and it just abruptly ended. I absolutely despise books with open endings! It wouldn't be so bad if this was the beginning of a series but everything I've seen points toward this being a stand-alone so it looks like I'm going to be left high & dry! I deducted a whole star for that shitty ending. If you don't mind open endings, give it a try. It's a great book otherwise. The story is basically about "something" that has been unleashed into the world and now everyone is fighting to stay alive. The story follows a family through their ordeal and what they go through to try and survive. It reminds me a little of Bird Box which was an awesome book too but Bird Box had a much better ending.
