I'm a person who doesn't read a lot but as this was on my course i hadn't got a choice and now i'm delighted I read it.This is a book that gives people an inside into ordinary people's life in Northern Ireland.Once you pick up this book you will keep reading.When you see the troubles in Iraq it's seem's nothing. In my opinon Brian Moore is an excellent author and he deals with things that happen to people every day and I like them sort of storiesWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When I first started reading 'Lies of Silence' I thought it would be like any other book I had read in the past. However, after have read about 5 pages or so I was already begining to enjoy it. I felt as if the book took me as a reader into the world of North Ireland and the troubles. As a high school student in Norway, we were obligated to read it. But after reading this book I must say I would have read it over and over again if I was given the chance. This is an exellent thriller, written by the outstanding author Brian Moore.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I really enjoyed reading "Lies of Silence"......because you realize that teenagers all over the world are still misguided and abused by different ideological apparatuses that take advantage of their lack of maturity and personal experiences. People just don't learn from the past ¿.. violence isn't serving the peace process....... it¿s only creating more conflicts and more hatred. On the other hand, a suspenseful plot is created in ¿lies of Silence¿ by the dilemma faced by Dillon that is made more complex by his intension to leave his wife and by whether the IRA has issued a warning about the bomb or not. If he calls the police, he risks his wife's life. If he does not, he places other innocent peoples' lives in danger. Anyway, I would recommend "lies of Silence" if asked whether it's worth to be read or not.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
