Whisper by Lynette Noni- 5/5 stars
Thank you so much to Pantera Press for sending me a copy of Whisper to share my thoughts. I squealed when it arrived as I was not expecting it!
“Lengard is a secret government facility for extraordinary people,” they told me.
I believed them. That was my mistake.
There isn’t anyone else in the world like me.
I’m different. I’m an anomaly. I’m a monster.
For two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes, Subject Six-Eight-Four — ‘Jane Doe’ — has been locked away and experimented on, without uttering a single word.
As Jane’s resolve begins to crack under the influence of her new — and unexpectedly kind — evaluator, she uncovers the truth about Lengard’s mysterious ‘program’, discovering that her own secret is at the heart of a sinister plot … and one wrong move, one wrong word, could change the world.
Whisper is a new novel written by Australian author Lynette Noni. She has another series out named the Medoran Chronicles, which I absolutely adore. Lynette’s books keep getting better every time she releases a book. This review will be spoiler free so, warning it may be a little broad.
When you pick up Whisper you instantly get dragged into the world. It is easy to follow Lynette’s writing style as you get immersed into the story. The intrigue about this book are all the questions that Lynette creates in the reader’s head. This is what I enjoyed most about this book. I absolutely love it when authors add mystery into their books.
The protagonist of this novel ‘Jane Doe’ is very intriguing which heightens the mystery throughout the book. She is very stubborn about keeping quiet and not letting anyone know anything about her. I love this personality trait and how Lynette explored the theme that people you love can help push or ‘chip’ the boundaries of trust surrounding a person.
The supporting characters were very beneficial to the story and added a great element of character growth for Jane. There was a story to be told for every character you met and I adored how Lynette connected all the characters in unexpected ways. Lynette really knows how to make the fans happy and she provides us with all different aspects throughout the story such as romance, action, friendship and even betrayal, which I am sure most readers enjoy dearly.
Lynette really does know how to make the reader emotionally invested in all the characters. There is one man in this book that I love so much and if anything happens to him in future books I am going to be in a mess of tears. I really hope everything is alright for this character because he really deserves his happiness. AND you can fight me on this but I will always ship him and Jane. This book did rip out my heart a few times and left me in awe of what had just happened. But it also had really sweet moments that all readers love.
I was very surprised with how this book ended. Of course there is a cliffhanger, which I am not too happy with. But it just makes me even more eager for the next book so I can know if my favourite characters survive. I am super excited to see where the plot is going to go and how all the characters are going to develop after these events. I am pretty sure some traumatising times will be ahead so I hope the characters will be ready and that my favourites will not die.
Overall, this book was a masterpiece. It was a gorgeous dystopian/ scene fiction novel that everyone will love. You will be hooked from start to finish. Please pick it up and support Lynette. She is a phenomenal writer and every review and new reader will help her career so we can get even more of these lovely books! I highly recommend this novel to everyone. Especially if you loved Divergent, Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children and X-Men. You can purchase this book or The Medoran Chronicles, from Book Depository, Booktopia, Pantera Press, Amazon or even your local bookshop. Thank you for taking the time to read my review, please give it a like if you enjoyed it.
