Soundless by Richelle Mead

Hardcover, 267 pages
Published November 10th 2015 by Razorbill

Well, this was boring. So very very boring. I ended up skimming.

The premise was so interesting. Chinese Lore inspired. People on a mountain and all are deaf.

What I got was the only Chinese thing was the names.
Fei was dull, her lover was dull.
The lead up was long
The climb took a page. I mean come on, no one else tried this?
The resolution was put together really quickly and was just stupid. Oh please. All these people should be dead.

It felt like a series put together into one book. Also one very boring book.

Though considering I have not liked anything else by the author then srsly, what was I expecting? ;)

For as long as Fei can remember, no one in her village has been able to hear. Rocky terrain and frequent avalanches make it impossible to leave the village, so Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink. Many go hungry. Fei and all the people she loves are plunged into crisis, with nothing to look forward to but darkness and starvation.

One girl hears a call to action…

Until one night, Fei is awoken by a searing noise. Sound becomes her weapon.

She sets out to uncover what’s happened to her and to fight the dangers threatening her village. A handsome miner with a revolutionary spirit accompanies Fei on her quest, bringing with him new risks and the possibility of romance. They embark on a majestic journey from the peak of their jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiguo, where a startling truth will change their lives forever…

seriously right, sorry but I know you have to give an author just one more try sometimes right!

After this, no more. Only if she writes something adult

Yeah - this sounded so cool but was rather boring.

Sorry to hear you didn't like it more.

So interesting premise but come on, you are on top of a mountain that no one has never gone down and it happens in a page?!

Blodeuedd said...

Bad find

BiblioSanctum said...

I remember being very disappointed in this but I don't recall exactly why - maybe that's part of the problem, it was so hokey and forgettable!

Boring = skimming - for sure I identify with that, books either grab us or ... go past us!

Oh, bummer. It's been a long time since I've read one of her books, but this doesn't appeal to me. :(

Blodeuedd said...

I liked this way better than you, but I think I enjoyed it because I listened to it.

Blodeuedd said...

To listen is always better

Carole's Random Life in Books said...

Oh no! I actually enjoyed this book. Sorry it didn't work for you.

This does not sound like fun at all. Ms. Mead really hasn't been the same since The Vampire Academy, to be honest. Lol.

Blodeuedd said...

I did enjoy her adult books, but dunno how old they were
