"In the darkness of a underground cave system, cut off from the world for millennia, blind creatures hunt by sound. Then there is light, there are voices, and they feed. Swarming from their prison, they multiply and thrive. To scream, even to whisper, is to summon death. Deaf for many years, Ali knows how to live in silence. Now, it is her family's only chance of survival. To leave their home, to shun others, to find a remote haven where they can sit out the plague. But will it ever end? And what kind of world will be left?"--Page 4 of cover.… (mere)

There was a surreal feeling to reading an apocalyptic book during a pandemic. The two worlds kind of blurred together. I wasn't expecting the characters to social distance (although they did in a few scenes) nor did I expect vesps (the creatures in THE SILENCE) to attack me when I went outside. However, the emotions from both built on each other; I immediately identified with the new world in the book and then was more paranoid than usual in real life. The result was a very enjoyable reading experience.

The story alternates between the point of view of Hugh and Ally Andrews. Hugh is the dad, wanting to protect his wife, kids, and mother-in-law and to get them somewhere safe. Ally is his daughter, struck deaf in a car accident years before. The previously mentioned vesps are blind, bat-like creatures the size of cats and with tentacles and razor teeth that have escaped from a cave in Moldova and who hunt by sound. Hugh and his family are in the United Kingdom and trying to escape to the family home in Scotland.

There are a ton of elements that makes the story and characters incredibly real. Lifestyles that have been sacrificed for the kids. Neighbors in denial about the threat. The imperfections of every character. One thing which I thought was great was the way Ally continually got news updates from the Internet and social media. It's exactly what so many people would do in real life. It also heightened the pressure and tension significantly. The family wasn't just running away from a threat but they were constantly finding out how dangerous and deadly the threat was. Figuratively, the vesps were in the rear-view mirror, always getting closer until they finally overtook them. At that point, the novel adds the tension of monsters constantly around, waiting to strike at any moment. About the only negative thing that I can say is that the book seemed to end rather quickly. I wasn't upset about how it ended because realistically there are only a few ways an end-of-the-world book can end. I was more disappointed because I could have easily gone another 200-300 pages. I wanted more! I suppose that is the best way to end a review: I want more. ( )

The book is always better (and in this case, substantially different). ( )

An excellent apocalyptic thriller, well plotted and disturbing, tugging the heartstrings in all the right places. Simple writing which does nothing to reduce the tension but makes this accessible for most ages from young adult to adult in part because the story is told by two main protagonists, father and daughter. As a side note the film based on the book does not do the novel justice. ( )
