And the rest is Silence...

Ms. Fiitzpatrick, it was an interesting ride but I must disembark after just one hour in and leave you to the younger set.

A word to the over... oh I don't know... 21? 25? well, somewhere in there: I can only relate my personal experience here to let you know that where some teen novels can be fun for adults, this one should definitely remain among the teens. I tried my best to stick with it since I had listened to the first two, but this narrator just teen-angsted me to death. The story is to blame too.

This coming from a 31 year old gal about to take her neice to the midnight opening of Breaking Dawn. You be the judge.

I gave it two stars instead of one because surely the teens will love it. I just won't know myself.

Silence Must be Code for Filler.

Becca Fitzpatrick returns with her third composition Silence, which was more an absence of content than sound.

The latest installment in the Hush Hush series catches up with Nora at the beginning of fall term. Unfortunately Grey has been missing for most of the summer and can't remember the past five months prior to her reappearance. Weird, since she hasn't been gone that long. Nora's going to have to unravel her past to solve the ever growing mysteries of the present and hopefully save her from an unwanted future.

Silence was my least favorite of the series so far. While I appreciate the use of amnesia as a writing device to fuel the story, I felt it dragged on too long. Nora's lack of knowing created more filler than possibilities and took up a good half of the book. I would also recommend reading the first two books before Silence. I felt like Nora wasn't the only one who didn't remember what was going on, and without the usual recaps in the beginning the story it got a little frustrating. Add in all the supporting characters having drastically changed, some of the plot points fell flat for me as well, and Nora acting self-centered toward her allies at times, I found a lot to disconnect with. Included in the forgotten portion of her life was Patch, so not only was I lost but I was lost without a lifeline to cling to most of the story.

The only saving grace was in the second half of the story when Nora was finally getting some answers, Patch was becoming more of a feature again, there's some resolution, and we find out what really happened to Nora during her lost time.

Overall I felt like there was a big gaping hole in a huge section of this book, and I'm hoping Silence is just a long pause before a very eventfully storm.

Great Story

Story was amazing!! I got Silence the day it came out and finished it the next day. Story line kept me hooked, narrator was great and Patch and Nora were awesome. Loved the twists and ending, cant wait for book 4.

This is a great saga

I love Becca Fitzpatrick and this story is amazing. I am hoping that her 4th book is going to be as good as this one is.

The heroin can be annoying

Nora vacillates from brave to doormat to over the top desire so often that it makes you wonder if it’s the same person. Often times I wondered if the author neglected to include the reader in the story. Book One: Patch disappears into the school to check things out and doesn’t resurface until Nora is in dire straits in the gym. He’s an angel (fallen for what seems erroneous reasons) for crying out loud but is powerless to have vetted a crime scene and help Nora. Where the hell was he! There’s a whole lot of reaching but no action. Which brings me to the end of the fourth book’s excursion. Throughout the books you hear about “wondering hands” unbridled desire and kissing and Patch pulling Nora closer by her panties but the author drops the reader flat once the vows are spoken. No eluding to what could have happened. Absolutely nothing. Understandably, this is a teen book, but a good author can weave some intrigue without getting blatant. Either that if her editor felt that the end was too heated and Ms Fitzpatrick didn’t want to take the time for a re-write it and instead bounced the reader right off into a cloud of dust without a second thought. Incredibly sophomore-ish.
It’s entertaining but be prepared for the inconsistencies and cringe worthy scenes. Good luck!

OK

This was again just OK. I'm not really invested in the romance between Patch and Nora. I find Vee annoying. I really dislike Nora's mother. It's just entertaining enough that I want to know what happens, but that's about it.

Good story

In the beginning it annoyed me because it seemed like a summary of the first 2 books, but the more I read the better it got and by the end I couldn't put it down. I'm really glad that there is going to be another book, because there are so many loose ends! I still love Patch!

love this narrator and love this story

only complaint is there are a couple spots in the story that skipped, like a cd player. Luckily I own the book and I could read along.
