Carter did this too often through exposition instead of letting the reader learn from the actions and dialogue of the characters The flow of the story was constantly interrupted while the author took the time to explain why or how the characters communicated in the ways that they did These explanations were usually unnecessary as the why and how could have been efficiently explained through the context of the story This in itself was not enough to ruin the book for me however What really disappointed me was the ending The confrontation we spend the whole book waiting for is very anti climactic and the last chapter is so chocked full of unrealistic happily ever after type of events announcements and epiphanies that it took an otherwise decent read and made it feel very amateur Endings are hard to do I get that But this felt like someone pulled a practical joke by removing the real last chapter and replacing it with this Disney fied version For such a messy story this ending was too neat and tidy and realized a little to easily I have really enjoyed this novel It made me laugh a couple times and it also made me sad at others I love the heroine Lacey She s deaf rides a motorcycle has a puggle and a major attitude She s very likable When trying to read people s lips she would sometimes run down a multiple choice in her head like this He either called her a A good premise with an astonishingly bad follow through I m usually able to suspend disbelief for a good story but this tortured tale was just ridiculous Not very goodauthor was all over the place with various story lines which seemed really unrealisti.

A very interesting book well written and an insight into some of the issues important to Deaf people What do you do when you discover your whole life was a lie Mary Carter has placed the reader right at the heart of an intense cleverly crafted moving and emotional storyline replete with plenty of twists and turnsShe has created believable well developed inspiring characters who absorb you into their lives with their complex personal challenges that made me smile and feel a little sad both at the same timeI asked myself how I would feel and react if I found out that my life as I believe This book has the most preposterous story line ever I can t believe I wasted my time reading this book When the big climax comes it last all of about 5 pages with the most ridiculous explanation Save your self the time and energy and read something else This book started out strong I liked the characters I was fascinated by the glimpse into the deaf world But then the story just got strained and down right weird Many of the interesting mysteries in the story were explained away with unsatisfactory and unbelievable answers I m disappointed because I like Carter s writing style and the title of the book is brilliant I eep wishing that this was the rough draft and Carter could re write the ending Taken from my blog at wwwtakemeawayreadingcom Also posted at wwwluxuryreadingcomMy Sister s Voice tells the story of twin sisters Lacey and Monica separated early in childhood and raised as though the other doesn t exist Lacey grows up in a children s home with a strict house mother while Monica grows up with her parents and ha.
