Source: I received a review copy of this book from IndieSage PR in exchange for an honest review.
This book was quite a ride! I had read a book by K. Webster before (which was quite mind blowing btw…), I picked this one immediately and damn… this was definitely explosive as ever!
As the author said in the blurb, one should go into this book without knowing nothing otherwise, it’ll ruin the whole essence of this book, I too will be very vague in this review because I don’t want to give away the actual spoiler but it’s going to be very freaking hard to review this book but trust me, it’s worth the read, it’s not an average NA book.
Kady is running from the ghosts of her past, the only constant in her life was her boyfriend Yeo, who she pushed away. But now he is back in town and he wants her back in his life. But when the demons of her past come back to haunt her, where will she run?
The plot was executed in a unique way. Kady doesn’t trust anybody except a select few of her friends. Her only solace and comfort were her boyfriend Yeo before she pushed him away because she felt she was keeping him tied down. Things start to change when he comes back but her past won’t let her live. Up until 50% of the book, some of the things that were happening felt a little wrong to me but then wamn bam!! In the freaking face! The plot twist came out of nowhere, I didn’t even imagine something like this could happen and trust me, everything falls into place.
I’ve been wanting to read a book with this particular mental illness for a long time since I read a book by Sidney Sheldon and this was even better than that! The mental illness is treated sensitively but it’s not glossed over. I can’t say anything more about this topic but you guys should most definitely read this book.
All the characters are well fleshed out, I think it’s one of the reasons I couldn’t detect the plot twist that was speeding my way. Nonetheless, I loved Kady and I really hated what she had to go through in her childhood. Yeo is the man of any girl’s dreams. And yay to the diversity, I love Korean people! Although Kady pushed him away, he never gave that place in his heart to anybody else. And most of all, Kady comes with a lot of baggage but Yeo stayed, his love and loyalty for this girl really touched my heart.
Overall, Whispers and the Roars was a fantastic read. The plot and the characters were executed really well. I loved the romance and the relationship between Yeo and Kady. The plot twist was really… well twisty (just read the book). The writing was a tad bit different but it suited the book and I definitely loved it and the pace was even throughout the book. I can’t wait to read more by this author.
