This was a well written book with excellent character development. But I would not recommend it to young readers because of some disturbing things that happened to the main character and her fellow captives. The horrors of slavery are made very clear. There is no happy ending to this book.

If you absolutly hate sad endings than you will hate this book.It is briliantly writen and a wonderful story with unforgetable characters.However i personaly hated the ending.I thought it was sad and depresing,but thier are some that might consider the ending as only semi-sad and still enjoy it. This story had me going the entire time I was reading it(last year on thanksgiving)and I was forever hoping for a happy ending so it was a big blow for me to discover that it wasnt what i was hopping for so fervently. This book is about a young irish princess,who is taken abourd a slave ship with her sister. She and her sister deside not to talk so as to make thier origens a secret.Her sister manages to escape but she cant. Eventualy she is sold to a man as a concubine(hore basicaly except they dont have a choice). During the tale I kept waiting for her to somehow make it back with her family. I was disapointed. i wouldnt recomend this book to everyone. But like I said before it is briliantly writen.

Hush was a very interesting novel. I was not the least bit disappointed until the end (which made me almost cry). But certainly not every book can have a happy ending, just as reality doesn't always have a happy ending. The ending aside, I loved the book and would recommend it to those with a strong tollerance for sadness. Also, it has some intense moments, so probably not advised for young readers.

Donna Jo Napoli  takes a heart breaking theme and makes it beautiful in "Hush" With such dark themes as sexual slavery, it's hard to imagine how that would be possible, but she turns the story into one of self-discovery, triumph, and sacrifice. Well done, Napoli!
