The Silence and the Roar: Book summary and reviews of The Silence and the Roar by Nidah Sirees
The Silence and the Roar Summary
Set in an unnamed Middle Eastern country resembling Syria, The Silence and the Roar is equal parts parable, political satire, and love story. With a Kafkaesque sense of the absurd, it spins a timely tale that catapults the strangeness of tyranny and the toll of dictatorship on individual freedom into sharp focus.
