Rated 3 out of 5 by from Entertaining Read Nice quick read. This was recommended to me by an Indigo employee and I'm glad she did. I would classify it more of suspense than horror though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chilling and Scary!!! Terrifying apocalyptic novel as the world is forced into silence from a new natural enemy that thrives on sound. The world is laid to mayhem as as a newly unknown predator is unknowlingly unleased from a cave in Eastern Europe. The strength of the novel are the characters and the grim realistic mood as the main characters seek refuge in England. Great novel read in a few days!

Editorial Reviews

"A deep, emotionally driven novel that has just enough creature-feature heebie-jeebies to make it as much fun as it is captivating, The Silence makes the grade as one of the better apocalyptic horror novels you will read." - Ravenous Monster "The horror works well, and the monsters are legitimately scary, as are the lengths some people will go in an effort to survive." -  Bricks of the Dead"Tim Lebbon does a fantastic job of showing how horrific events can shape not only adults, but also children, and the bravery of his characters amidst such self-doubt is heartwrenching." - My Bookish Ways"The treatment of Ally’s disability makes this book unique not only from a standpoint of inclusivity, but because it introduces unique problems to the characters." -  Paper Droids "Lean but meaty and damn near unputdownable" -  The Blood Shed "The degradation of modern society as the swarm moves on is reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Fans of environmental horror such as Stephen King’s The Mist and creature feature horror flicks will no doubt love the end of the world as we knew it and the beginning of Tim Lebbon’s new one" - Hell Notes
