I’m Deaf. What most people view as a disadvantage, I see as an advantage.
I feel my way through life in my 1969 Ford Fairlane. The vibrations and speed sustain me, the race track is where I dominate.
I thought racing was all I needed to survive…but I was wrong.*Presley*
Music is my life. I inhale the melody and breathe in the lyrics.
That was until I met someone that opened my eyes to a new culture. Who knew all it would take was silence for me to really experience music.When Silence and sound collide it creates an explosion of the senses.
It hast been a few days since I read “Silent Song” by Jaci Wheeler now. And my mind is still processing the book. So I guess the author did something right. It seems from what I saw this book was the first journey into this kind of contemporary genre for the author. The other books I could see seem more a touch of paranormal. It sure was my first book by this author. And I am 100 % sure that I will read the next book from this author too if it contains a contemporary plot with these kind of “broken/hurt/brooding” leading male character.
I am not even sure what to say about the book because I want to avoid under any circumstance to give away to much on the plot … but I am going to pick up a card from this deck that I rarely play and that is the comparison card… Please let me mention Two books – and please do not take the mentioning of these book as face value for the plot but just as my very personal comparison of what I felt when I read the book. OK here it comes
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
I am not going to comment on the reasons for this comparison again because of spoilers (this time because of the mentioned books) but lets say these two books left me with a similar feelings but questions and Silent Song was finally able to answer a lot of these questions. So in any case if you read one or both of the above mentioned books and loved them as much as I did – you are going to want to read this one and vice versa.
I admit to being an addict to these kind of stories so I scan all outlets on regular base for these kind of novels and if you read this review and know of a book that fits these descriptions please feel free to drop me a line – comment – message whatever…
I loved the writing style of this author. Without going into details as you have to experience it for yourself (and please read her explanation so no skimming on the first pages please) I can only say that it was exhausting to read it. I can almost feel your confusion so I confirm. YES I loved it and YES it was exhausting. But it was necessary that it was like that because that was one of the things that makes this book unique and that helped me understand some things. Gosh I wished I had a way of precisely telling you what I mean but really you need to try for yourself.
The only thing I come up with that I can tell is that the writing style helped me understand how exhausting and loud the world is and how full of unnecessary things. How unimportant the words of an answer are when you can read it in the face of the person you are talking with.
There is so much more I would like to say but then I would have to mark this whole review as spoiler and I do not want to do that.
This book opened my eyes … and I feel ashamed that even after reading so many books in this genre I still did not grasp the complete picture until now. I think now I do. And I would like to thank the author for that.
