This is possibly her best book yet. Bestselling and award-winning Icelandic crime author Yrsa Sigurdardóttir has produced here a dazzling display of brilliant crime writing that is both groundbreaking and immensely satisfying. As The Silence of the Sea opens, a luxury yacht crashes into a Reykjavik pier. But the boat is empty; no one is on board. Originally published in , The Silence of the Sea is not only one of Hilaire Belloc's last books it is also one of his finest. With his usual wit and eloquence, Belloc covers a wide range of subjects - art, history, literature, travel, politics and religion - in this collection of 48 scintillating essays. This is Belloc's first volume of general essays for some time, and we realize what we have missed in the interval. They are charming, have a nice quality, a bit &#; pleasantly &#; old school. Precise &#; classical &#; quiet humor &#; and touching on everything ""from ships and shoes and sealing wax to cabbages and kings"". There is a suggestion of Logan Pearshall Smith.   Silence has the meaning: the state of being forgotten; oblivion.

As Rodrigues lives in Japan in search of his former teacher, he goes through inner turmoil as he questions God’s decision.

One of the other things that, for me, goes very much with silence, although it’s not the same for everybody, is a deepening of the experience of nature and understanding of ecology. This book, which won the Pulitzer literature prize when it was released, is the most beautiful book about the wild. Belloc Essays -- Mild But Pleasant; THE SILENCE OF THE SEA and Other Essays. By Hilaire Belloc. pp. New York: Sheed & Ward. $ Silence tells the story of Sebastion Rodrigues, a young Jesuit priest in , he sets out for Japan alongside two priest companions. They plan to go to Japan both to do missionary work and to find out the truth about their teacher, Christovao Ferreira, a well-respected missionary and theologian in Japan who has recently been shamed because of his apostasy.
