First, about the audio...

Ron Livingston narrates Keep Quiet and, I have to say, I was impressed. He is very good with voices for all the different characters and the pace is nice and quick, but not too fast. Reading/Listening went very quick. It was easy to listen to and get sucked into the story on my 45 minute commute into the city every Thursday for ceramics and during my 3 mile walks. 

Now, about the story...

Jake and his son Ryan find themselves on the side of the road after hitting a jogger trying to figure out what to do. Call the police or leave the scene of the crime? A quick decision to save his son's future turns into a nightmare for their whole family while they attempt to "keep quiet". 

What seems like a story of morals and guilt changes to more of a suspense thriller with the introduction of a mysterious stranger. There is a lot going on but all is quite entertaining and I found myself talking/yelling at these characters who have difficulty making the right choices. They definitely weren't the easiest characters to like.

In the end, I think there should have been more consequences. This story felt too happily wrapped up. It all worked out a little too well for me. It was entertaining, however, and found myself unable to stop listening many times. 

Can't wait to hear what my other book group members thought of it. 

Happy Reading!
