    3.5 It is not often that implausibility in a plot can be overcome, but this one did the nearly impossible At least it did for me, the strong writing, the descriptions, the suspense and the ultimate warning about the high cost of our way of living and our constant need for oil Little Ruby was an interesting character, a deaf girl with amazing skills and thoroughly bonded with her father Her mother, Jasmine was tenacious and smart but well read this and you will see But, the real star of this show are the descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness, the extreme cold, the brilliant stars and the people and animal that make this place home Almost felt like I was there, but of course I was much warmer The ending a little predictable but suspenseful and as I said, c...

    The Quality of Silence is a totally gripping thriller written beautifully and with delightful characters especially ten year old Ruby who actually makes the book Rosamund Lupton describes the extreme cold of the Arctic Circle perfectly I felt like grabbing a blanket to huddle under everytime Yasmin got out of the truck I did not even mind having to totally suspend belief while watching her drive a giant truck on ice roads, through a major storm for 300 miles Not possible but it made a great story Little Ruby was a heroine too I liked the way the author dealt with her deafness and the ways in which she communicated Her relationships with her father and mother were beautifully descri...

    The Quality of Silence is a read that was worth waiting for I m a huge fan of Ms Lupton s previous novels and with this one she has taken a step up with some beautiful writing, an intense, chilly and emotional read that is utterly utterly gripping.Ruby s father is seemingly killed in a horrific accident Ruby s Mum however does not believe it and with Ruby in tow sets off across a bleak and unforgiving landscape to track him down As the story unfolds from both points of view it is truly fascinating and this is one of those tales that you sink into without looking back.Rosamund Lupton really does have the magic touch when it comes to characters, Ruby s voice is amazing and really makes the whole novel so much than it could have been the yin yang aspect between her observations and that of her Mother is well imagined and gives huge depth to proceedings, I loved both of them dearly.As for setting, the author brings Alaska to vivid, realistic life around our two as they travel ever onwards, the beauty of the descriptive prose giving the reader a real feel for the challenges being faced, so realistically written that at times you may physically shiver, even in the current heatwave we are experiencing Therein lies...

    This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.I have struggled with how I should rate this book I really liked a lot of things about this book but I had a few problems with it I consider this to be a good book overall that I wouldn t have any problems recommending to most readers I think that the three star rating that I finally went with is fair.Let s start with the things that I really liked about this book First of all, Ruby was a fantastic character She was smart, resourceful, and very brave I really wished that of the book would have come from Ruby s point of view because her outlook on the world was just so interesting to me I think that the descriptions of her hearing loss were incredibly well done and it added a lot to the story Ruby was just an amazing child.The setting in this book was wonderful This book is set in the winter months in Alaska I can t imagine that kind of cold At least, I couldn t before reading this book I thought that the conditions in this book were fantastically portrayed I read this book curled in a blanket hoping that I would never experience the kind of cold that I was reading about There was a beauty to this cold wilderness that really surprised me.I did...

    I ve got to say, I was impressed by this book I read her previous work Sister and while it wasn t bad, I didn t think it was that great I m really glad I gave this one a shot as it has much improved my opinion of her work I think my favorite aspect of this novel was the author s sheer talent for descriptions of the setting As I was reading I could have sworn I was trekking through the snow in Alaska with Yasmine and Ruby The writing is beautiful and almost felt like poetry This was a unique feeling for me that has taken time to process Possible spoiler in this next paragraph even though it is mentioned very early on I also really enjoyed the narration from Ruby s perspective as she is deaf This added a whole other level of expert writing I felt and was very impressed with how this played into weaving the overall story together.I also found myself holding my breath at ...

    A Beautiful Place A Ridiculous Plot 3 Stars Part of me feels that I may be a tad generous with a three star review I had some issues with this book but on the other hand, there were elements that I found quite enjoyable and even enchanting This novel holds the distinction as one of a few books that I both liked and disliked Plot Summary Ruby and her mother Yasmin, fly from England to Alaska to meet up with their father husband who is in a remote village filming a documentary Upon arrival, Yasmin learns that there has been a massive fire at the village and all persons are believed dead Not believing this to be true, Yasmin takes her daughter on a harrowing journey across the Alaskan ice roads in search of the truth What follows is a series of terrifying experiences and a journey that allows Yasmin to understand the silent world of her deaf daughter My Take There was much I didn t like My summary of the plot does little to describe the absurdity of what occurred In this story we have the highly intelligent Yasmin Well, we assume that she is supposed to be intelligent She is an astrophysicist after all Within the first few pages, Yasmin is informed that her husband is believed to be dead All bodies were accounted for at the village She re...
