The Whisper product reviews

Twins Mika and Ellie have an unusual talent: the ability to hear what others are thinking.

Their mission: keeping track of the thoughts of a tyrannical leader and his brainwashed child army. That's when they begin to hear The Whisper...


    •  The exhilarating sequel to The Roar
    •  Set in a dystopian future with plenty of edge-of-your-seat action; a must for younger fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent

I didn't realise when I got this that it was a sequel to The Roar which unfortunately may well have been a prerequisite to understanding The Whisper fully. That said the plot of The Whisper was enough to grab my attention and it did look like a good story. My review thus is limited by perhaps not fully appreciating this book fully as it was clearly intended to have been read after the Roar and was not as some sequels are intended to hold its own as a stand alone book.

As a story line I think this book is full of promise. I didn't fully understand what had happened to make some of the children become mutants but the basic premise, without giving anything away, is that the children of the North were gathered together and trained to become an army to take over the ruling rich South. The children however were able to take control using telepathic communication named The Whisper and planned to make the world one again without there having to be a war. The book is very futuristic but seemed very disjointed in its construction and perhaps because I hadn't read The Roar I didn't really feel a connection with the characters.

Because I really loved the concept of the story I would recommend reading this as it is a good reminder of what can happy in an unequal society and when the worlds resources run out but this didn't really hold together well enough for me to want to read it again nor have it as a personal favourite.
