Silent Echo – Reviewed!

Silent Echo I feel as though some readers have become the most harsh of critics and have forgotten how to simply read for pleasure. This book was good. Another reviewer pointed out that the author didn’t focus enough on the mystery, but the fact is that the case and the investigator share the same story. Its written in first person, which was a problem with another reviewer because they felt as though the investigators thoughts were too redundant. Well, they were redundant, but honestly, if I were stricken with his condition, death and how I view life because of it would always be on my mind. It only felt natural. Sure, the case was pretty simple and not grand in scope (most cases in real life are not), but it was fitting for our dying main character to take on near the end of his life for reasons I won’t mention. This is an enjoyable afternoon read. Its emotional and compelling, and is a testament to the enduring strength of love when you think you’ve lost everything. Check it out.

  1. Although I have not read the book above I would agree 100% about readers being too harsh. I do tend to write about the books that I read, but I try to do it in a way that isn’t insulting to the author, or to other people that have read the book as well, whether they liked it or not. That being said, there are the occassional books that do tend to test the patience for me for sure, and I cannot help but write about that aspect when it comes to reviewing the book in question. I hope that makes sense and doesn’t sound convoluted!!

    1. Not at all! Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Often enough there will be reviewers who state things like “this author can’t write!” That’s most often ridiculous, although I do understand that it happens sometimes, but more often than not… it doesn’t. I feel like Silent Echo was a decent summer read, one that you don’t have to take to seriously.
