Silent Child Reviews
Very disappointing! Unfortunately everything about this book was immature to me, the characters, the dialogue and the writing style. Add to that all the spelling errors and I just couldn't give it more than two stars.
Though this was not as exciting as I expected, it was a pretty solid mystery. It's quite atmospheric and the main character is well sketched out. However, I did guess the resolution about half-way through, hence the three stars. To me, the villain always seemed so obvious I kept thinking there had to be another answer, but no, I was right, though I didn't want to be. Overall, not a bad book, but nowhere near as gripping as I had expected.

Se ve lo consiglio? Assolutamente no.
È della Newton Compton e sta spesso a 99 cent me comprateci altro. Risparmiateli.
Due stelle di voto e credetemi sono molto generosa in questi caso. Mi vorrebbe da dare uno che equivale a carta igienica dal mio punto di vista. Ma quel voto non lo do mai.
I am still pondering on my review for Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil just let me say that it was a powerful heartbreaking read, the first half was strong & was a page turner but after that I found it a bit draining, I thought the author had overdone Emma's grief it was just a bit much over the topto believe & the way Aiden was put in cotton wool (not to be touched by anyone) annoyed me, although I understand the feelings of Emma wanting to protect her child. there was a lot going on wit ...more
SILENT CHILD by Sarah A. Denzil is a dark disturbing psychological tragic story of a mother, Emma Price whose little six-year-old boy, Aiden, who wandered away from school during a terrible flood and drowned. They never found the body. This was the day she lost Aiden, and the day she “lost control of her life”.
“We saw Aiden in each other and it drove us both mad. I felt like half a person after I thought Aiden had drowned in the flood, and I imagine Rob, his father, felt the same. We should hav ...more
A MUST READ for fans of dark psychological thrillers and suspense novels.
I have never read anything by Sarah A. Denzil before but after reading Silent Child, I know this won't be my last. I am fussy when it comes to my favourite genre but this hit the spot and then some.
I could tell you what this book is about but I am sure you can read the description, I prefer to tell you how absolutely awesome this book is! Yes, it truly left me in awe and it's not a book I will forget for a long time if ever ...more
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!!! Kept me on the edge of my seat throughout and left me dying to know what will happen next. Some great twists and turns that had me shouting 'OH MY GOD!!!'.
It would make one hell of a movie that's for sure.
Dark, gripping and original, Silent Child isn't perfect but I still really enjoyed it, especially the realistic characters.
