Silence By Becca FitzpatriEeling that a part of her is missingThen Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger whom she feels a mesmerizing connection to He seems to hold all the answersand her heart Every minute she spends with him grows and intense until she realizes she could be falling in love Again Normally I don't write reviews for this series but something just had to be said Silence is probably the worst of the lot of them so far My gripes with this novel don't end at the protagonist it digs into the use of obvious plot devices the insensitive way mental illness was portrayed the disturbingly light way murder was handled and the awful writing style Here have a breakdownNora is an Annoying Horrible PersonThe first third of the book was dedicated to Nora not remembering anything from the past 5 months of her life She whines and moans constantly about this fact Now I understand the sense of loss trauma and depression that can come out from amnesia but Nora takes liberties to remind us every single chapter that she is sad because she can't remember anything and anyone who doesn't fall all over themselves to try to help her remember and do what she wants them to is a big meanie and she hates them There was a passage during one of these chapters that destroyed any sympathy I might have for her plight Nora wonders why her But she didn't leave it at that she wonders why her in all the billions of people in the world SHE had to be the one who got amnesia Where did I leave my tiny violin?This pattern of annoying selfish behavior from Nora is constant throughout the book and somehow amplified from the first two books She freuently becomes angry with people for little reason makes completely nonsensical decisions lies to people she supposedly cares about purposefully puts herself in danger then blames it on her amnesia and later on blames her poor life decisions on her biological father and she gets angry whenever someone disagrees with her It makes her wholly unsympathetic Then to add to her list of personality disorders she becomes completely psychotic from the middle of the book onwardNora's a PsychoNow I understand completely the feelings of anger toward someone who kidnapped you and from what I read may have temporarily deprived you of food for a couple of days But from the middle of the novel Nora actually wishes to murder her captor It was very disturbing to read about a sixteen year old girl plotting to murder another person and having absolutely no ualms about itSo even the craziest of crazies are written so that the reader can tell the character isn't uite right in the head and that going around murdering people isn't exactly the best way to solve your problems Fitzpatrick wrote Nora's lust to actually kill her captor like it was the sanest possible decision she could have madeAnyway in the end Nora does kill the guy after her and Patch plan to keep him around for eternity to torture Yes an eternity of torture That sounds wholesome right s? And instead of being traumatized or at least feeling a little bad that she killed somebody she actually feels vindicated about itPatch is Still the Worst ThingPatch has always been creepy in these books In the first book he was sexually harassing Nora And somehow she fell in love with him anyway In the second book he ignored her completely and hurt her emotionally And she was still in love with him In this book HE REUESTS Nora's memory be wiped as far back as five months to protect her By the end of the book she still loves him I don't know if that sounds like an abusive relationship to anyone else or is it just me?Despite finding out it was really Patch who took so many of her memories Nora forgives him within a few days And here I thought she was so upset about it considering it was all she talked about for over a hundred pagesOften during the book the only thing that seems to keep Nora from dumping Patch's sorry ass is the fact that he's repeatedly described as hot In fact every time Nora goes to touch him we get a description of his toned insert body part here It was incredibly nauseating and even after three books two covers with Patch on them and a graphic novel coming out I still have absolutely no idea what Patch is supposed to look like and I don't give a damnThe Writing Never Got BetterI tried to understand the sloppy plot devices in Hush Hush because it was Fitzpatrick's first novel But the writing never seemed to get any better between the three books The style is still generic often repetitious and Fitzpatrick seems to be in love with plot devices because Silence is loaded with them YA readers deserve better than thisLet me talk about devilcraft because it will be mentioned about a hundred times in the novel as this vague magic thing that came from hell Basically devilcraft is capable of being used to do anything from erasing memories to capturing archangels to making a grilled cheese sandwich If there was anything in the plot that needed to make sense but Fitzpatrick didn't introduce it in the first two books it was always explained as this vague Devilcraft thing It wasn't even hard to pick out as a plot device because it used every damn place the author didn't have an easy way to explain why someone could do something whereas someone else could notWhile we're still talking about plot devices I hope you like the sound of mind tricked because it's used even than devilcraft Basically in moments when the author can't shoehorn devilcraft to explain something she'll use mind tricked Why do strangers refuse to help Nora when she's clearly in trouble and begs them to? They were mind tricked Why is Nora's mother even useless than normal? She's mind tricked Why do I always lose a sock on laundry day? I was mind tricked Why does this sound like some cheap plot device ripped from Star Wars? Probably some kind of devilcraft or mind trickAt the end of the book it is revealed that Nora becomes a full on Nephilim She bemoans this at first because she thinks Patch will hate her now that she's not a human and Nephilim are the enemies of the Fallen Angels I found it ridiculous that the only person Nora seems to be concerned about is Patch She's only known him for five six months and instead of thinking about how her mother or her best friend will react she goes off sobbing about how her deeply disturbed boyfriend might not like her any With all of this stupidity do I even need to talk about the sloppy writing style and prose? Here are a few lines you better get used to because you'll see them plentyHisHer eyes cut to minepersonobjectHis eyes contained a verb edgeSecondary Characters A Mixed Bag of AwfulThere's really nothing I can say about Nora's mother being a horrible mother She's dating a guy that Nora hates Instead of having a bit of sensitivity for her daughter she goes ahead and does whatever she wants pushing forward with her love life and seemingly ignoring Nora's needs Good mothering job BlytheMarcie Millar is made out to be a bitch in the previous books At least that's what the author wants us to think Only in this book she managed to make Marcie out as the most sympathetic character Here's a teenaged girl whose parents just divorced found out her father doesn't love her and that her entire life has been secondary to some idiot girl with a creepy boyfriend Between Marcie and Nora it was Marcie who chose to comfort her mother after a divorce Contrast this with Nora who acted like a huge ass to her mother lies to her mother and at the end of the book leaves her drugged mother at her best friend's house to go sleep over at Patch's place Priorities amiright?Despite Vee Sky being obnoxious in the previous two books she came off significantly better in this one For two reasons 1 Vee called out Patch's name She said what we were all thinking which was essentially isn't Patch a dog's name? 2 She calls out Nora's insane illogical lust for Patch She straight up tells Nora that she only sees the 1% of good in Patch and is blind to the 99% of psychopath in him It's too bad Vee wasn't saying all this from the beginningSpeaking of strangely sympathetic characters Dabria makes another appearance in this novel Nora's reaction to her is so outlandishly hostile that every time Nora felt jealous I got annoyed As a result I felt really bad for Dabria because the woman wanted to help Patch and willingly did so Then there's this crazy girl complaining constantly about how jealous she is The funniest part was that Dabria tried to kill Nora in Book 1 but that gets mentioned once or twice by Nora compared to the fact that Dabria and Patch used to be a thing I always knew Nora had messed up priorities but COME ONScott Parnell makes another appearance though his return itself is a plot device Basically he shows up gives Nora an infodump then lives in a cave I wish I was kidding about the cave thingI'm Shutting Up NowSo I think I've made this long enough In the end Silence was much worse than Hush Hush and Crescendo combined Nothing happens for the first part of the book unless your idea of delightful Sunday reading involves going over the musings of an underdeveloped character Then Nora falls into Patch's life again and she goes from annoying to psychotic I can't think of a single redeeming thing in this entire novel
