Silent Child Reviews
I had seen some reviews for this over on TBConFB and was intrigued enough to download a sample to my Kindle. As soon as I finished the sample, I bought the whole book straight away so I could continue reading it. I have a TBR pile to rival Ben Nevis but this book just grabbed me by the throat and wouldn’t let go! Honestly, I could not put it down! I made tea whilst reading this book. I fed the dog whilst reading this book. I put my make up on whilst reading this book. I went for a wee whilst re ...more
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.
Disappointing, dull, repetitive, not believable
Buddy read with:- Abdullah, Elsa, Amna, Zarshal and Nigham.
(Spoilers are concealed. Feel free to read)
Emma has lost her six year old child, Aiden, in the flood. He appears after ten years when she has been married to Jake and she is pregnant with his child.
Where Aiden had been for ten years? And how he survived? These questions would have been easy to answer only if her traumatised Aiden could speak the unspeakable.
I was hooked by this book honestly. I didn't want to put it down. ...more
This book is a prime example of why a good editor is so important. While reading (struggling) through the first two thirds of the story I was forced to endure the worst "poor me" attitude by the main character, even though her son has just returned after 10 years. The author managed to create so much negativity, more so than was necessary. This was mostly portrayed by the main character's CONSTANT whining, her complete lack of concern for her unborn child and her lack of concern for everyone but ...more
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.

Loved this read
This book started with a bang. There was consistent mystery, thrill and the 'who done it ' factor. I couldn't put it down! I finished this book in about a day. Now at some point the constant description of adrenaline would have me pumped as well and I needed a break but that would be my only complaint.
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
