Amazingly powerful violent and truly thought provoking this will stay with you for a long time !
on 17 July 2014
I've just finished reading hush and felt compelled to write my first ever review. I will be honest this book and the subject matter really affected me as I have experienced some of the things that happen to the lead character jane/ diamond. I would advise that anyone looking to read this novel be highly aware of the violence and extream child sexual abuse suffered by Jane. This book is not for the faint hearted or for those without a strong disposition .The book is narrated by Jane and all of the the things that occur are entirely from janes point or view which I found right from the start made the story that much more powerful and I felt I was quickly drawn in to janes world and that because of that what happens to jane is very easy to visualise as the descriptors in the book are so graphic,intense and we'll thought through. As the book progresses the events that unfold become more extreme and throughout there are very clever under currents and hints as to there being more to the story than the reader was lead to believe hats of to author delving de la chapa for a thought provoking novel that makes the reader desperate to see someone rescue jane, I won't spoil the boom by giving too Much away but I will say prepear yourself to be emotionally affected by janes story it's unavoidable . The author has truly done a stellar job of creating an incredibly powerful emotionally shocking novel that cannot fail to raise strong emotional responses for the reader I for one look forward to the sequel to this novel , bravo to devlin for creating an amazing book on a subject that takes guts to tackle .
