This superior psychological thriller...absolutely gripping, intriguing and superbly written...a compulsive read
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
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
