So Far: When I began reading Silent Harmony by Michelle Scott, I expected a charming book about horses, and so did Coconut. This book is so far less about horses and much more about rich kids being snobby. Vivienne, our main narrator is completely lovely, and tells most of the story with a distinct voice, which the other (ehm) sub-narrators lacked. Coconut is finding the story as lacking cohesiveness so far, and I have to agree him. The book fluctuates between being about teen romance, to horses whose minds can be read, to murder. Like, what. Coconut wants everyone to slow down and chill and realize what's going on, and so do I.
A Sneak Peek:
"I've seen angry eyes, kind eyes, eyes filled with fear or poison, but vacant is all new to me."One thing Coconut and I can agree upon? Our eyes were never vacant when reading this book, and we can't wait to finish it.
