My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Date read: April 18 – 23, 2017
3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars as I loved Amelia and Stitch! I am a huge fan of this author and was extremely excited and considered myself lucky to receive an advanced copy of this book!
NOT A SOUND by HEATHER GUDENKAUF is an interesting, moving, emotional, and lightly suspenseful mystery/thriller that hooked me in right from the get go with that ever surprising and unexpected first chapter. I love it when a book grabs my attention like that right away.
HEATHER GUDENKAUF delivers a well-written, fast-paced, captivating, and vivid read here told through the eyes of our main character Amelia and the ears of her loyal service dog Stitch. I was totally immersed in Amelia’s character even though she was imperfect at times she was such a powerful, unique, and strong female character with endearing and likeable traits.
I really enjoyed the relationship between Amelia & her service dog, Stitch! I hope that we get to visit these characters again in future books!
This wasn’t necessarily a gripping page-turner and was somewhat predictable but what I loved and enjoyed were the characters, the setting, the words written and the satisfying ending. Sometimes that is all I need to make it an enjoyable read for me. Would recommend!
