Book Review: Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton

I can’t weep. I can’t fear. I’ve grown talented at pretending.Elizabeth Caldwell doesn’t feel emotions . . . she sees them. Longing, Shame, and Courage materialize around her classmates. Fury and Resentment appear in her dysfunctional home. They’ve all given up on Elizabeth because she doesn’t succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one—Fear. He’s intrigued by her, as desperate to understand the accident that changed Elizabeth’s life as she is herself.

Elizabeth and Fear both sense that the key to her past is hidden in the dream paintings she hides in the family barn. But a shadowy menace has begun to stalk her, and try as she might, Elizabeth can barely avoid the brutality of her life long enough to uncover the truth about herself. When it matters most, will she be able to rely on Fear to save her?

My Review:

   First of all, let me just say that I love this cover, it's a bit creepy but definitely eye-catching and cool. And secondly, I fell in love with the concept on which this book was built on, the premise wasn't at all tempting but then, it turned out to be nothing but unique and incredible, plus, it was overflowing with Emotions.
   In Kelsey Sutton's book, Emotions take the form of humans in a world where humans as well as Emotions and Elements live. Fear, Denial, Anger, Courage, Joy, Sorrow, Longing.... However, they weren't seen by humans, it was only Elizabeth that could see them but it was becasue she herself wasn't normal - she didn't feel anything, she didn't fear, care, love, nothing. I know it may seem complicated but once you come to grips with the story, you'll enjoy it. The writing was good and coherent. And although the story itself may be counted as a somewhat mystery novel - which is not one of my favourite genres - but it didn't feel like so. The characters were all genuine which will get you easily lost in the book. However, the general atmostphere of the story was, I have to admit a bit creepy for some reason , yet it was nicely lyrical. 

   Overall, Some Quiet Place left an impact on me and I have thoroughly enjoyed it that I had a hard time putting it down. The characters' feelings - especially Elizabeth's - was beautifully portraited. The plot was extermely well-thought and it wasn't a concept that would stumble across everyday and that I cherished. With this being said, I can only say that I do HIGHLY recommend reading this book!
