    One thought on “Some Quiet Place”

    1. 2.5 starsI'm sorry but so much of what I want to say about this book requires spoilers. All spoilers have been placed in spoiler tags but they are very real ones. Only click if you have read/have no intention of reading this book.There was a short period near the beginning of Some Quiet Place when I truly believed I might have found another 5-star read. It started out beautifully with some excellent, evocative language that made up for the lack of emotions felt by the protagonist. This main char [...]

    2. 3.5"It’s the way humanity is; give them what they want, and it turns out it’s not what they wanted after all. I've said it before and I say it again: I started this book with high expectations. Very high expectations. But, in contrast to what I though, not too high. Which may seem contradictory considering that my rating is 3 stars out of five, and here I have to ask you to believe me: I was somehow able to impose on myself as much objectivity (speaking about literature and books and art in [...]

    3. This review is also available over at my blog._______________________Everything about this book called to me. From its eerily gorgeous cover to its intriguing and original premise, I was hooked, and I dove right in as soon as I got my hands on a galley of it.Final thoughts? Well . . . this book could have been fantastic. And don't get me wrong, it was. At least, during the beginning parts. I was grinning from ear to ear most of the time because seeing the world Kelsey Sutton built was so fascina [...]

    4. Elizabeth can see emotions as people. That hooked me as soon as I read that line. She lives in an abusive household with a father that physically and verbally abuses her and a mother that verbally told her that she doesn't want her, that she isn't her child. Elizabeth doesn't feel. Anything. "I guess pretending can be similar to hiding. Hiding doesn't seem like the right word to use, though. I would say that when someone is pretending to be something, or hiding who they are or what they believe, [...]

    5. Yes! I finally got the book today! :D Edit: Okay, I have given this book 4 stars but it should really be 4.5. The only reason I'm not giving it five is because the love triangle didn't seem to help anything (I know that ending but still!) and I kind of wanted Elizabeth to end up with the secondary characterand maybe Rebecca to end up with Fear, the other partial main character.

    6. See more reviews at YA Midnight Reads Thank you Flux for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review.'People are so complex. They want to hear the truth, but they want you to lie to them.'This month hasn't been a happy month for me. Some Quiet Place is just another addition to the 'meh' pile. While the cover and synopsis scream with brilliance, in the collection on my thoughts, this book could only be summarised as insipid and inconsistent. Here's just a few tea [...]

    7. Kelsey Sutton's provoking, gut-wrenching, and twisted (in all the best ways) novel about a girl who sees emotions as personified, meddling beings, is a debut to treasure.Original, unique, and brimming with Emotion, Some Quiet Place made me ponder, ache and feel, even when the MC, Elizabeth, was doing her best to stay herself from those feelings.I love a book with a message, or a story behind the story, and though I couldn't really see the entire picture until the final brushstroke had hit the ca [...]

    8. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. At first it was a bit dragging but then I started to understand Elizabeth, protagonist, more.:ElizabethShort synopsisWhen Liz was 4 she got in an accident and then on does not have any feelings. No love, anger etc. She can see and touch the emotions and they look like people but no one else can see them. Fear has an interest in her, BTW he is an emotion. He wants to find out what happened, make her feel again.FearSo she has weird dreams and they try to pu [...]

    9. I had the privilege of reading an earlier draft of this book back when I first met Kelsey, and I was completely blown away then. Such a unique, clever concept! Such gorgeous, thought-provoking writing! And also, FEAR. Yes. Fear. I have only one thing to say to him:Recently, Kelsey and I caught back up and she sent me the final draft version, which I happily dove into, and justwow. It's very rare (for me, at least) to find a book where everything --the writing, the plotting, the characters-- capt [...]

    10. An ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence my review in any way.Once again, a book that is stamped with such a lovely, eye-catching cover, but with a storyline and heroine so bland and dull that it hurts. Honestly, I expected a lot because that pretty dress made of flowers and sepia tint just screamed "UNIQUE" in bold, capitalized letters. And it's true, it is unique. The premise was definitely interesting. I mean, dude, how often do you see a s [...]

    11. Some Quiet Place by Kelsey SuttonFirst book in the Some Quiet Place series3.5 starsElizabeth Caldwell has always known she was different, but it isn’t easy for to hide.

All the emotions have given up on her because she doesn’t succumb to their touch, except for Fear. He wants to figure out who Elizabeth really is and why she can’t feel anything.

    12. 5 ESTRELLAS QUE SE LLEVA EN ESTA RELECTURA, SÍ SEÑOR.Primera frase:"Fear is coming."Reseña:Como muchos sabréis, Some Quiet Place es mi mejor lectura de este 2013: con un planteamiento original a rabiar, una pluma poética y unas escenas increíbles, superó con ventaja a todas las demás. Lo leí en primavera pero no pude reseñarlo, así que aproveché la Christmathon para releerlo y lo he encontrado aún más perfecto si cabe. Así que preparaos para leer una de las reseñas que más me ha [...]

    13. I liked this strange little book. I had a lot more to say about it back when I read it last year, actually quite a bit more. Alas, I never wrote it down and my scatterbrain can't recall anything, so I'll just have to do a quickie. Quickies are great if they get the job done.Some Quiet Place was unique and at times challenging. I enjoyed the relationships between the MC and the character of Fear (though I kept picturing Spike from Buffy), the complexity of her family life, and her most interestin [...]

    14. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. May contain mild important spoilers.And they're not hidden. When I saw that she didn't feel emotions, I imagined some strange psychological disorder, or maybe that since she had suffered so much trauma that she just shut off from emotions and the rest of the world, not some inhuman shit. The author just went crazy with that. But that's OK. I'm down for crazy, anytime. Anyway, everything was cool and dandy, when it just started taking epic tu [...]

    15. Some Quiet Place is definitely an intriguing novel. The summary felt very original and exciting to me, so of course I was eager to pick it up. I have mixed feelings about the cover - yes, it's beautiful and it does portray the mood of the story well, but . . . it's creepy. I think I would like it a lot more if the model had arms. I remember picking this up a long time ago in the bookstore and reading the first chapter, thinking it was good, and then putting it on hold at the library. It took me [...]

    16. 'The little girl I see in the pictures doesn't really look like me. The physical details are the same, of course. The wild blond hair, the blue eyes, the smooth, sun-darkened skin. But if someone else hadn't said that the little girl was me, I wouldn't have known. It's not that I don't remember being so youngI just don't know how I became what I am now.There's something missing in the girl I see in the mirror compared to the one in those pictures: a sort of soul. A light inside.'She can't weep, [...]

    17. Some Quiet Place surprised me. Here was a book I had never heard of from an author who I had never heard of and I was completely satisfied. Elizabeth Caldwell isn't quite normal. She can't feel emotions. Every action or encounter she has with other people, she fakes. She is acting every moment of her life, except for those moments where she is completely by herself. Her unfeeling nature doesn't go ignored by others. Everyone knows there's something wrong with this girl, but they just can't seem [...]

    18. Rating : 3.75 stars ?I'm going with a 4 stars rating thinking it's too much. But giving it only 3 stars would not be fair because it deserves more and I really liked it. Elizabeth can't feel emotions. But she can see them, they look like you and me. Courage, Joy, Anger, Fear, They wander from human to another, never stopping for her.Elizabeth can't feel anything but an emptiness that eats her alive.Personified emotions ? I have to say, it sounds awesome. And it is ! Add to this a beautiful writ [...]

    19. 5 stars.She is void of Emotion.Some Quiet Place is subtle. It doesn’t force its values onto you, nor is it showy or extravagant. It’s so subtle that for a while, I wasn’t sure where it was headed and what it meant to me. But I know now. In those last forty or so pages, it finally broke through. The darkness ebbed away to reveal a message so applicable to my past experiences, to anyone’s future.Elizabeth Caldwell can’t feel. Instead she sees Emotions in their human form. They’ve all l [...]

    20. Someone who can't fear, or love? It seems like that would the most boring type of character to read about, but Kelsey Sutton manages to make it absolutely fascinating. Elizabeth doesn't feel any emotions, and right from the get-go you're willing her to, because who doesn't want her to be affected by the frustrated, beautiful Fear, or the thoughtful, attentive boy in class? I was worried the author wouldn't be able to stick to the emotionless plot, since emotions are the heart and soul of books. [...]

    21. Surprisingly, for an original concept such as this it reminded me very much of another Summer release - Another Little Piece in the way it was written and the general gist of it. Not that this is a bad thing, I really enjoyed both of these books and I do think that Some Quiet Place was the better of the two, I just couldn't help but find similarities and wonder if this kind of thing could be a trend.Aside from the absolutely amazing cover, what drove me to request this book was the interesting p [...]

    22. When I read the description of "Some Quiet Place," I was immediately intrigued and the gorgeous cover filled me with a need to read this book ASAP. Thanks to Netgalley, I was able to dive right in.Elizabeth has not been able to experience emotions since a mysterious childhood accident, which she doesn't remember. Despite her abusive home life, her status as a 'freak' in her Wisconsin farming community, and her one friend's losing battle with cancer, Elizabeth has to pretend to feel anything abou [...]

    23. I was enthralled. And also mostly confused up until the last 50 pages or so. And then everything made sense, and it was all so wonderfully brilliant and I was rather like "Oh I get it now," and felt secretly embarrassed (not so secretly now) that I hadn't connected the dots. I guess this means I wasn't able to see the ending for once. O.o A great mystery, it was. I didn't get it at all along the way. Then again I've never read a book like this before. Which is why it was brilliant.EDIT: Also, si [...]

    24. I'M PISSED OFF AND SAD RIGHT NOW.It was a good book. I wanted to love it so much. But why the hell did she pick Fear when she had Joshua right there? I could rant forever and ever about how much I hate bad boys but I'm gonna leave it there.

    25. 4.5 starsHonestly, I didn't expect to enjoy it so much. Some Quiet Place has surprised me, has enchanted me.Well, Fear too.~ Full review to come ~

    26. The fact that Kelsey Sutton was eighteen when she wrote Some Quiet Place notwithstanding, this is a phenomenal debut.  It would be a uniquely captivating story regardless, but when you take into account the author's youth, it makes it even more so.  The mystery of Elizabeth's existence was compelling and her isolation from the feeling world was complete.  And yet I wanted to know the why and how, unravel the enigma that was Elizabeth in her emotionless state.Some readers will find it difficu [...]

    27. 4 starsSome Quiet Place is an extremely imaginative and original debut novel by author Kelsey Sutton. The story is shrouded in mystery and takes some dark and creepy turns, which all in all make for a very memorable read.The concept of this novel I just love it. Elizabeth doesn't feel emotions, but she sees them - physical presences in the world that haunt the humans and make them feel their influence. She talks to them. But why can she see them? And why can't she feel? This mysterious element m [...]

    28. 4.25“I can't feel sadness, anger, or fear. I can't feel anything. I've grown talented at pretending.Elizabeth Caldwell doesn't feel emotions, she sees them in human form. She can see Longing hovering beside Joshua, a shy boy at school, Courage beside Maggie's bed at the hospital and Guilt, Fury and Resentment in her abusive home. But Elizabeth is different because she can't feel their touch, she can't feel anything. And because of that all the Emotions have given up on her. All but Fear who su [...]

    29. There’s a dream like feel to the story both in her present and her past. It left me feeling confused countless of times, so that now I feel like this could have been great had it not been so confusing but also feeling like it was an excellent read for the very same reason! The more I think on it the clearer it is that that its different vibe is its strength:From Elements to Emotions and how they all play a part in her reality… a reality completely her own. What is she exactly? And why her al [...]

    30. Debut author Kelsey Sutton took a big risk in deciding to write about a protagonist who can’t feel any emotions. After all, one of the biggest criticisms of unsuccessful YA is about bland characters. And while there is an external reason for why Elizabeth is like a shell of a person, I am sorry to say that, instead of being a bold experiment in defying common YA problems by facing them head on, SOME QUIET PLACE merely fell into those very traps.I’ll be straight with you: Elizabeth has no per [...]
