    The Book of Silence triology will always be my favorite Duncton series simply due to the fact that I read it first This installment reviews the rest of Privet and Rooster s back story, Wilhelm s parentage is revealed to everyone but him , friends are lost and found, and a friend from the first Duncton series makes a cameo.My editions of these books make constant comparsion to The Lord of the Rings, usually saying that the Duncton books are better I m not entirely sure why the two books have The Book of Silence triology will always be my favorite Duncton series simply due to the fact that I read it first This installment reviews the rest of Privet and Rooster s back story, Wilhelm s parentage is revealed to everyone but him , friends are lost and found, and a friend from the first Duncton series makes a cameo.My editions of these books make constant comparsion to The Lord of the Rings, usually saying that the Duncton books are better I m not entirely sure why the two books have similarites but LOTR is a quest book, a physical quest book The Duncton books are quest books, but in a totally different way It isn t a physical quest, but one of the soul Yes, this does also appear in LOTR, but LOTR is farof a physical quest with an undercurrent of religion The Duncton books deal with faith Bad things happen, but the idea of failure that is present in LOTR is strangely absent The Duncton moles do perform a quest, for silence.While some Christians in general, and Catholics in particular, might be upset by the protrayal of the Newborn sect in the first two books of this series, Horwood does not use a simplestic approach He shows us that there something good in the Newborn sect, in particular though the reaction of beloved characters Horwood does not go after faith in general he presents a treatise about how something good can be perverted for something evil.Sounds timely and apt doesn t it

    I just love the Duncton series It had both spiritual meaning and a very good intrigue You care about the characters, you follow them with your heart and soul.

    so far these worm eaters are caring, thoughtful, violent, driven, irrational and energetic faith woven throughout.

    If such a thing existed, I would nominate the entire series for the Bad Animal Sex Award Entirely gratuitous horrible mole sex what That s a thing now It is entirely possible to make sex involving animals believable I can think of two examples without trying , but this isn t it These books are terrible the writing is poor and the plot doesn t make sense or leave any room for any given event to have emotional consequences However, the sex is the nadir Do not read this book It will rot If such a thing existed, I would nominate the entire series for the Bad Animal Sex Award Entirely gratuitous horrible mole sex what That s a thing now It is entirely possible to make sex involving animals believable I can think of two examples without trying , but this isn t it These books are terrible the writing is poor and the plot doesn t make sense or leave any room for any given event to have emotional consequences However, the sex is the nadir Do not read this book It will rot your brain

    I have had enough I skimmed the last 100 pages or so because I couldn t stand anyof the unnecessary words This story could have been told in half the pages I found it impossible to connect with any of the characters, and I honestly don t care what happens in the last book I am done with this series So there
