Should I Read or Ditch: SOUNDLESS by Richelle Mead

I was really excited to read SOUNDLESS. I had never read a book by Richelle Mead before, and I've only heard amazing things about her writing. However, I'm having a really hard time getting into this book. Is it just me? Is this her normal writing? Not that it's bad! It's just so slow!

The story sounds really interesting on the outside. I love that she's writing something that hasn't been done 1000 times before, but it just doesn't seem to be working for me. It is super slow, and not just because the characters are deaf, so there isn't much dialogue. Also, the world building is lacking and there just isn't very much happening. Not to mention that I feel no connection to the main character, and I really think the current (only?) love interest is a jerk.

I'm listening to this on audiobook, which I'm usually much more patient with, but I don't know guys. I'm strugglin'

So, do you have any advice for me? Does it get better? Should I push through? Let me know what you think!

  1. Richelle Mead is a top notch author. Her Vampire Academy books are one of the few book series out there that I can honestly say start to finish are pretty darn near flawless and that I have zero complaints about. Thus far, I have only read one review of Soundless from someone who was equally enthused about the VA series and Mead's writing, but she too struggled enormously with Soundless and was ultimately disappointed. I personally can not DNF a book. Once I start, there is no stopping me from reaching that final page no matter how much I hate the book. So if it were me, I would keep going. I don't know if that really helps or not, but it's all I got, haha.
