The Silent Land

The Silent Land Cover

Predictable Story, Generic Characters


The Silent Land has an interesting premise, but the story ends up following a very well-worn path. The lead characters, Jake and Zoe, seem such a generic representation of their demographic that it was hard for me to care about them as individuals. I felt like there was a lot more telling than showing going on in the narrative, and the frequent dialogue between Jake and Zoe seemed strangely stilted. Overall, I think The Silent Land is a story fitted to specific tastes that just happen to not be mine. If you feel like reading a bittersweet, sentimental story that offers all of the usual commonplaces about love, relationships, and what really matters in life, then you might find this book to be exactly what you’re looking for.
