From the very first page to the last one the book hooked me, not only because the story is refreshing and captivating but because the writing style is fluid and inspiring. The author has also written a story within a story, Silent Echo takes pieces of the The Odyssey, I really do not know how many because I have not read The Odyssey yet (something I'm definitely going to do this year because after reading the story of Portia I have a lot of curiosity) and within Portia's story the songs are a story inside Silent Echo. I loved the songs and there were even some that I kept singing in my head.
It's been a long time since I've read a book that had so many switches, turns and unexpected discoveries. When you think you've discovered everything that is behind the story suddenly appears a scene leaving you with more intrigue and disrupts everything you previously thought. It is a mesmerizing book, it started engaging the reader completely enthralled till the last page, literally.
I loved the references to current issues because in addition to recognize everything about what the author refers, it was a change that brought realism to the story.Read more ›
Portia has the unfortunate problem of being a very likeable character at the beginning of the book and slowly is poisoned (by the other sirens) to the point where she becomes the type of person she hates. I didn't like who Portia was by the end of the book, but I did pity her for what she had to go through. I also didn't approve of who she picked as a boyfriend at the end. Then again, I'm always disappointed by the heroines in that regard.
I especially enjoyed Max's songs to Portia. I wish that my husband picked up a guitar and sung to me. I loved the lyrics and they felt as true to the heart as those in SLAMMED. I didn't enjoy Portia's songs as much. Though her voice might have been pretty, her message was not.
I wish that the book stuck with the POV of the teenagers. I didn't how much information was revealed by Leucosia and would have much preferred learning about her involvement through Portia's POV only. I think that leaving Portia's POV for extended periods of time made her personality change harder to accept as a reader. It would have been more of a seamless transition if the reader experienced it in its entirety.
I'm kind of shocked at all the negative reviews for this book. Though I wasn't blown away by the book, I really did enjoy the author's spin on the siren's tale. I'm a huge fan of Greek mythology, so it's a little disheartening for other reviewers to be so harsh on the author's interpretation.Read more ›
