Noise is Deafening

I received a complimentary copy of this book for this review. All opinions are 100% mine.


Wow oh wow! I can say that Noise is not the normal type of book I would read. It is very graphic and very violent but because there is an underlying story that made me willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. The love between siblings is a strong one. Even though there are a lot of sibling rivalries, there is no stronger bond than this one, so I agreed to give the book Noise by Brett Garcia Rose, a chance.

Here is a brief summary of the book.

Lily is the only person Leon ever loved. When she left a suicide note and disappeared into a murky lake ten years ago, she left him alone, drifting through a silent landscape. Or did she? A postcard in her handwriting pulls Leon to the winter-cold concrete heart of New York City. What he discovers unleashes a deadly rage that has no sound. A grisly trail of clues leads to The Bear, the sadistic Russian crime lord who traffics in human flesh. The police—some corrupt, some merely compromised—are of little help. They don’t like Leon’s methods, or the mess he leaves in his wake. Leon is deaf, but no sane person would ever call him disabled. He survived as a child on the merciless streets of Nigeria. He misses nothing. He feels no remorse. The only direction he’s ever known is forward. He will not stop until he knows. Where is Lily?


This book is not for the faint of heart. I found myself squirming as I was reading – several times I had to put the book down because it was just too graphic. This is not a book I would recommend to everyone but if you like action and suspense than this is the book for you.
