SOUNDLESS was a really interesting novel, because it remarks on the idea of sound in conjunction with ones’ own fears. The society that Fei lives in is soundless, and this is a concept which scares me. Having this be the basis of the world in which she lives, however, is unimaginable. Mead somehow paints a picture of this in a richly imaginative way. Fei’s home in this mythological Chinese Mountain village is thrust into crisis and darkness and starvation. It is up to her to fight against the elements. This beautiful new book pictures an incredible reality with romance, and strength as Fei stands up for what she loves and discovers more about herself in the process.
