This superior psychological thriller...absolutely gripping, intriguing and superbly written...a compulsive read - Liz Nugent
Imagine Emily Bronte crossed with a Netflix true-crime documentary and with a dash of Big Little Lies thrown in. After the Silence is gripping, clever and beautifully written. O'Neill has a gimlet eye for the telling detail ...Chillingly good - Elizabeth Day
Elegant, assured, gripping and moving, it's her best book to date and that's really saying something
This is good. Really good. Dark and tragic and anger-inducing. Succession meets West Cork with a fire of feminist fury.
Chilling and atmospheric, After the Silence is sharp and perceptively written, with a mystery at its heart that will keep you gripped. I think this is Louise's best book yet.
A gripping new direction for Louise O'Neill but still with her distinctive powerful voice. I raced through it, guessing until the very - satisfying - end.
Devastating, chilling and enviably accomplished... I haven't been so gripped by a book in years
A powerfully atmospheric, darkly compelling mystery characterised by Louise O'Neill's exquisite writing and powerful psychological insight. Seriously good.
Louise O'Neill has done it again. . .her writing captivates me in a visceral way every time. After The Silence does what Louise does best: addictive and scalpel-sharp fiction that addresses important topics that should demand our attention, while feeling both deep discomfort and fire in our belly.
Louise O'Neill's After the Silence is a devastatingly beautiful book full of secrets, mystery and a story so powerful and enthralling you cannot look away. An absolute masterpiece and one of my favourite books in the world!
