"My sister is in trouble, and I have only minutes to help her.
She doesn’t see it. She’s having difficulty seeing a lot of things lately,
and that’s the problem."
The book starts off with Fei, the main character, trying to help her sister - Zhang Jing - because her sight, has been deteriorating, along with a surprisingly large amount of other people in their village. After a heroic act by Li Wei, we realise that he was Fei's childhood crush. From there on, action and excitement fills the book with varying hints to chapters of romance, and I read most of this in one sitting! Fei and Li Wei set off on a journey which originally is just to pay a visit to someone, but turns into so much more than they expected, and than I expected.
This book is beautifully written, a sweet romance and a brave adventure merged together to produce an amazing novel. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone.
Soundless deserves 5/5 stars.
