[Pdf Download] This Splintered Silence AUTHOR Kayla Olson
Ow her mind works how she s sometimes insecure but knows she has to be strong for her people Even though they keep making mistakes and not appreciating everything she does she always takes care of them How can I get things back under control if control as never truly mine to begin withShe makes tough decisions because someone has to She doesn t sleep because she believes there s always something to do something to help She has uickly become my fave character in the book and a strong female MC that I ll remember When it comes to the other characters I found them uite realistic and I could understand them most of the time There are six core characters which is usually not a good thing because they ust blend together and I can t keep track of who s who but not this time They were so well developed and even though I didn t agree with some of their choices I could see why they did it they were human The mystery itself was well done Although in my opinion we could ve gotten info throughout the book instead of having to wait till the last 20% But I didn t mind it that much because there were sort of multiple plot linespoints so there was always something happening There are only 2 problems I had with this book 1 as I said before the reveals came a bit late and we don t get the explanation for everything 2 I found the love triangle completely unnecessary even though it takes maybe 10% of the story the book could ve gone without it Now that I ve finished the book and spent some time thinking about it I feel as though this book wasn t about the mystery but about the characters what they go through how they behave and the reasoning behind their actions which is why I m still giving this book 4 stars even though we don t get
Explanations For Everything And Of Course The for everything And of course the is gorgeous also bonus points for this being a standalone First book read this year and it was uite an underwhelming readUnfortunately I didn t get too invested in it so I probably won t be giving a hardcore gif infested raging review but here s basically itBOOOORIIIIIIIINGI m not sure if it was simply the
"writing or if "or if s Prisoner of Midnight just the main character s voice that kept repeating their sentiments with the same words in different patterns every time You know when they feel this ONE SPECIFIC THING but theyust had to go about it dramatically for pages x infinity I feel like it was trying to be emotional but at a certain point it felt monotonous because of how they kept going back to it over and overPlus there s a love triangle that sent me on a yawning spree The climax was also uite underwhelming and the resolution too short and abrupt Unsatisfying Too bad too cause space operas are totally my am Insert crying gif here 35 starsThis book cuts cleanly two ways for me The first 50% I wasn t a fan of but the second 50% was really uite good Frankly the first half was a little too slow paced for a thriller but once past halfway the book did catch my interest And I never did suss out the culprit until the actual end and found many people suspicious so I did think that was done wellThe comp title of Illuminae did feel slightly accurate though it lacked the same gripping intensity and amazing AI Illuminae had And I did like the narrator s voice I confess I barely had issues with writing styles when reading a book but this is so unbearable My god Four chapters in and I m already rolling my eyes. S though Lindley feels her world shrinking even smaller The disease was supposed to be over; the second generation was supposed to be immune But as people die Lindley must face the terrifying reality that either the virus has mutated or something worse is happening one of their own is a kille. ,
I think most things begin to fracture without anyone realizing it s even happening a sort of splintered silence that gives way all at once under too much weight and without warningThemes survival friendships relationships growing up together evolving bonds science technology space station leadership stepping up grief trust asking for help virus mutation murder contagion space stress pressureNothing uite like what I expected This Splintered Silence is a surprising mix of familiar and well loved genres mostly scifi somewhat dystopian a little roma Unfortunately this
was a letdownThis Splintered Silence is a standalone story set in spacea letdownThis Splintered Silence is a standalone story set in space is a deadly virus going around I should have read the blurb bc if I did I porbably wouldn t have started this book rn the only surving ones are the young generation Among them is our heroine Lindley who is the daughter of the former commander now in this time of crisis a commander herself with a close childhood friends group to help run things But when a girl from the younger generation is found dead many things are set into motionThe characters were all honestly very one dimensional and mediocre including the MC and the group of friends There s also a love triangle not that prevalent but it is there And completely unnecessary
because neither of the romances are good neither of the love interests show any true personality nor do I understandneither of the romances are good neither of the love interests show any true personality nor do I understand they are into each other The romance felt so unecessary here if it wasn t there it wouldn t affect the book at all And even though they were childhood friends both Lindley and Leo and Lindley with Heath they had zero chemistry and it felt out of nowhere There is also a mystery And the revelation of view spoilerwho s the killer hide spoiler You can find the full review and all the fancy andor randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 35This was uite a fun book While not perfect I found it to be uite enjoyable and I was certainly invested in the mystery aspect of the story Let s break it down into likesdislikes because I cannot really talk about the plot too much for fear of spoiling The Stuff I Liked It was incredibly entertaining Despite any other flaws I ust plain really liked the story Is it murder Is it a virus mutation Something else I am not telling obviously but you get the idea there are a lot of possibilities Which keeps the reader engaged as you d imagine And while I thought I might have figured it out a few times I didn t actually until much later The explanations seemed legit I mean okay I don t actually know from a scientific perspective because I am not some kind of space biologist or something But to my common sense it sounded reasonable And really that is all I need Sometimes in the adults are gone shtick the reasons are suspect at best Here that isn t the case I really felt for Lindley and the other characters Can you imagine all the adults ust dying over a few week period Because it sounds awful Not only do you have to figure everything out on your own but you have to deal with a crap ton of emotions while you re doing it Then throw in dead friends and well it s not a great scenario The stakes are crazy high I mean they re in space by themselves with who knows what killing them I don t actually think stakes get much higher as a rule The Stuff I Didn t Especially at first but really throughout the thing I had a hard time keeping track.

where the aforementioned triangle added something to the story I didn t feel like this one did I didn tthe aforementioned triangle added something to the story I didn t feel like this one did I didn t care who if anyone she ended up with though I didn t dislike either guy either Bottom Line Super entertaining and full of action and mystery it s definitely worth checking out if you re a sci fi fan I m not a big science fiction reader but since This Splintered Silence featured elements of the mystery and thriller genres in it I thought it might be an interesting read It definitely was and Olson s ability to evoke sympathy for her characters and give them emotional depth than what I find typical in sc fi made it even intriguing to me The romance aspect sort of took away from the plot itself I found but still gave the book another layer to the storyI did find the book very chaotic and confusing at first but its plausible storyline and relatable characters made up for that in spades giving the book a lot to look forward to I would definitely recommend This Splintered Silence to readers who are new to sci fi as a genre or who aren t really into the genre much but still enjoy some aspects of it 25 starsWaaayy too much of Lindley feeling sorry for herself whining and running away hiding out to get it away from it all She spent time doing that then anything else If the author would have cut at least half of that needless self reflection crap out and focused on the actual story it would have been a decent book A gorgeously written tautly plotted thriller I inhaled this book and relished the twists and turns it took I love the way This Splintered Silence weaves science technology grief panic and the nuance of human relationship into a tightly woven web and an ending I never saw coming Before I start with the review can I ust say that this whole situation reminded me a bit of The 100 The MC Is A Strong Girl Who Has To Become A Leader a strong girl who has to become a leader there are no adults around and she has to make all sorts of tough choices sometimes she s right sometimes she s not and she has a close circle of friends who help her but don t always agree with her Clarke is that you And yes of course this review will only contain The 100 GIFs because I m dedicated like thatFirst of all let s talk about the writing IT S BEAUTIFUL You will notice right from the start that the author decided to go a bit poetic in this book and I have to say I m glad she did The writing style suits the slightly dark and mysterious atmosphere of the book Shooting stars were not magical or made of gold or glitter or embers or sparks They were rocks in the wrong place at the wrong time Dust and only dust This Splintered Silence is not an action book the pacing is on the slower side but it kind of
suits it The mystery unravels slowly and you can ust see howit The mystery unravels slowly and you can 6 1/2 Body Parts (Body Movers, just see how is falling apart how panic starts to rise among the people on the ship as they realize how dark and serious the situation that they re in is Hope and fear can only coexist as euals for so long before on devours the otherAnd most importantly you can see Lindley going through some difficult times Never thought it would be like this struggling to survive every day learning how to keep the Lusca running figuring out how to communicate with Earth making sure they don’t run out of foodWhen a member of the surviving second generation dies from symptoms that lookust like the deadly viru.
