Review

There are many things to love about Lupton's third novel, not least its stunning evocation of Alaska . . . The Quality of Silence is an elegant and icily unique thriller, you won't read anything like it this year. (Alison Flood The Observer (thriller of the month))

Like a breath of icy air, this relentlessly tense thriller is also a child's-eye family drama like none other. Not since Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow have I shivered like this. (Emma Donoghue)

I loved The Quality of Silence. It was scary, suspenseful and so exquisitely, evocatively written I often found myself shivering as if I were there in Alaska with Ruby and her mother. It was everything you want in a wonderful novel. (Liane Moriarty - author of The Husband's Secret)

Masterful pacing, riveting plotting. The Quality of Silence will have your heart thumping. Absolutely gripping. (Louise Penny)

With The Quality of Silence, Rosamund Lupton brings her sophisticated brand of suspense to a setting that might have attracted Jack London: the remote frontier of northern Alaska. An elegant, chilling read from a writer who continues to stretch the bounds of suspense. (William Landay)

Chilling in every sense. (Woman & Home)

A gripping, twisting tale. (Glamour Magazine)

Sister brought huge success for Rosamund Lupton. The Quality of Silence is just as engrossing, with the same claustrophobic feel. (Good Housekeeping)

The pressure is on to keep creating equally brilliant stories. British author Rosamund Lupton has done just that with new novel The Quality of Silence. (Red magazine)

A forbidding Alaskan winter is the setting for this ambitious and imaginative novel . . . Narrated in part, by Ruby, who is a delightfully realized character, (her deafness is treated with great sensitivity), the landscape, wildlife and bitter climate of Alaska are powerfully drawn. Chilling in every sense, you won't want to step away from this story. (Sunday Mirror)
