Avis de l'équipe

" Silent Child is a unique book, a shining light of hidden horrors and unbearable tension in a genre where it is always difficult to stand out. Emma's slow descent into hell from the moment her son disappears feels real enough to make you hold onto your loved ones that little bit tighter. Sarah A. Denzil masterfully carries the reader alongside Emma on a tortured mental journey: theories, conspiracies and increasingly justified paranoia as suspicion falls on everyone she has ever held dear. Along with Emma, you find yourself pointing the proverbial finger of accusation at a series of characters who once seemed safe. A visceral, darkly atmospheric listen that will make your heart beat, your mind race and your spine tingle." - Gabriel, Audible Editor

"A good audiobook for me is one that takes me on a ride that I never could have imagined, and Silent Child did exactly that. Sarah A. Denzil weaves a tale that starts with heartbreak, adds mystery and suspense, and ultimately becomes a thriller. The writing is superb and it created a blockbuster movie in my mind as I listened. Silent Child had me at the edge of my seat the entire time, and I even fell off a few times." - Sean, Audible Editor

"The premise is shocking and it compels you to find out where Sarah A. Denzil will take the story. But, where I think the author is truly genius is in the way she supports the central plot with some heartbreakingly real and genuinely flawed characters that were so obviously as fully developed in Denzil's mind as the thrilling hook that makes you choose the book in the first place. There's so much more to this one than first meets the eye." - Alexandra, Audible Editor

Description

Winner of Audible's 2017 Narrator of the Year Award

Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt.

In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She's married, pregnant, and in control again...until Aiden returns.

Too traumatised to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Where has he been? What happened to him on that rainy afternoon? And now that he's back, whom can he trust?

At Audible we love listening to crime books. But every so often one comes along that we think is truly special. An Amazon Kindle number one best-seller, Sarah A. Denzil's Silent Child is taking Audible HQ by storm. In an Audible Exclusive production, Joanne Froggatt (Mrs Bates, Downton Abbey) delivers a powerhouse performance that will keep you gripped until the very last second.

Slowest "Thriller" Ever

I almost gave up on this one. I'd say 80% of this book lead up to a pretty good last 20% but OMGosh it took forever to get there. Way too much detail of nothing happening for me. Not one I'd recommend at all.

Highly over rated.

Despite my attempt, I was unable to finish listening. The characters were not accessible, in particular, the main lead was narcisstic, not likeable and engineered little sympathy. About halfway through, I realized that I had little interest in finding how the book ended. Not recommended.

Stupid

The stupidest book I have ever listened to. The main character spent a lot of time yelling. When the narrator used a slightly different voice for one of the characters, it was a slurred whisper, that even after rewinding over and over I couldn't tell what a few crucial words were. After all the silly twists and turns other reviewers loved, at the short ending, we are left with a glimpse of sweetness and light, which after the events that happened would not be possible. I felt sorry for the baby girl that went thru all this in utro. Would ask for money back if I paid full price.

Absurd!

What a complete waste of time! I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but the “mystery” is both obvious and implausible. I would ask for a refund if I’d paid for it!

Not really a thriller.

In the US, a thriller is generally paced very quickly, frequently with a race-against-the-clock element. SILENT CHILD is more of a traditional whodunit. The pace is quite slow, particularly in the first half, and much of it feels like filler material. I confess I got tired of being reminded who the characters were in order to clarify the main character's feelings. ("He was my husband.""She was my friend." "He was my son." I know, I know!) The final 10% was fast-paced but, to my mind, pretty implausible.

Read beautifully by Joanne Froggatt.

Accurate Title

Silent Child is a very accurate title as 90% of the book consists of the ramblings of the main character trying to figure out who kidnapped her child 10 years ago. The ending was predictable and the characters were not well developed. Bottom line- read "Room" instead.

Repetitive Phrases Unbelievable Actions

Feelings, emotions, actions over and over again, the same old hackneyed phrases. Unbelievable story. Started well, got unmercifully bogged down and turned sunny-side up at the end, ignoring all the problems. Aaaarrrrgggghhh.

Overwrought

I try not to write negative reviews but here goes:

I do not understand the rave reviews Silent Child received as I was able to predict who did it almost right away, although I didn't know the exact details or the why until they were later revealed. The main character of Emma possessed an over-active imagination and wildly over-reacted to everything she imagined; yet, she continually dismissed all of her suspicions. She seemed to trust all of the people in her life, even as she suspected them! I kept hoping she would grow a backbone instead of constantly devolving into hysterics.

While the narrator was very talented at conveying the overwrought mother, I quickly tired of the constant hysterical delivery.

Joanne Froggatt 💕

I rarely find a book I really like on Audible. Narration is a huge thing. Joanne Froggatt was simple AMAZING. I loved her on Downton Abbey. That said, her telling of the story was a beyond plus.

I love Gone Girl (like most people) and Karin Slaughter and Mary Kubica (who has seemed to drop off a bit just like B.A. Paris. However, I love a suspense book. Love.

I really liked this book. It did keep me guessing and normally most books put it out there from the beginning who the bad guy is, but tell you the story surrounding it. This book did keep me thinking...but wait, it's not that person? Wait? So it is a very good book and I'm stingy in my recommendations. I get bored easily and I like twisty books.

Would I have liked the book enough to read it? Yes, but the narration was off the charts great.

I highly recommend this book if you like suspense. I've been a bit bored with my Audible picks lately thinking if I read them, I probably could finish them. Good narration keeps me hanging on and bad narration just makes me mad. How do some of these people get hired?

Book...yes.
Narration...no doubt. Amazing. A+++++++

Would NEVER happen.

I like books that are at least a little realistic. After 7 hours of wondering who it was, the last hour is filled with "yeah, right"s. Characters are completely 1-dimensional. If they're bad, they're horrible, evil, monsters, capable of anything. If they're good, they're a saint.
The redeeming quality was Joanne Froggatt's INCREDIBLE narration. If it had been narrated by anyone else, it would never be getting this much attention.

Psychothriller mit einem ungewöhnlichen Plot

Ein Kind verschwindet und taucht 10 Jahre später verstört wieder auf - wo war es, warum erzählt es nichts, wie reagiert die Umwelt? Die Mutter ist hin und her gerissen zwischen ihrer eignen Einschätzung und dem, was andere in das Verhalten ihres Sohnes hinein interpretieren.
Sehr gut gesprochen und in sich stimmige Geschichte, hat mich gefesselt!

Very well narrated!

I couldn't stop listening, because it was so very well narrated by Joanne Froggatt. The story was good, but also a bit depressing. All in all it was worth listening to it!

A story about ...

psychological abuse, liars, the trueness and vulnerability of love. And a story of strength and belonging.
The speaker's accent us something you have to get used to (exspecially if your mothertongue isn't English), but the story goi me and gripped me and slushed me in. Great job, Ms Denzil. I`ll have a closer look at your books which will follow. (Or so I hope.) I really LOVE psychothrillers, and this one belongs to one of the greatest I' ve listened to for what feels like ages!

Crazy Story

Ok i started to like thrillers like 3 months ago, and I am still not an expert in the topic, but I gotta say that they really exaggerated with this plot. So many characters, so many things going ok. I liked it and I heard it completely, but just because I was curious of what was supossed to happen in the end, although I had my suspicions.

Thriller of the year???

These very little thrilling in this story
The main character- Emma - is quite unbelievable as is the way the professionals in this story deal with the topic.
Not at all "thrilling"
The audio version is performed very well. The best part of this experience

Na ja....

Warum dieser Krimi so hoch gelobt wurde, verstehe ich nicht ganz.
Die Schwierigkeiten, die sich auftuen, wenn ein totgeglaubtes Kind nach langer Zeit wieder auftaucht, sind nachvollziehbar. Außerdem hat die Mutter ein neues Leben begonnen und ist wieder schwanger.
Die Geschichte ist zwar insgesamt logisch aufgebaut, allerdings wurden mir dann die Handlungen der Psychpaten am Ende zuviel. In meinem Kopf tauchten dann Gedanken auf wie: Warum höre ich mir diese Sachen an? Bringt man die Eltern einer Frau um, um diese besser kontrollieren zu können? Sperrt man ein Kind Jahre in einen Bunker, weil man selber keine Kinder haben kann? Unterstützt man dies, weil man als Frau eifersüchtig auf eine nette Freundin ist? Ist es so schwer als Ehefrau, diese Dinge zu durchschauen?
Und da hörte es für mich auf, logisch zu sein. Ich habe es aber bis zum Schluss gehört. Trotz allem.
