I was first drawn to "Soundless" because of it's stunning front cover and it was an enjoyable read. I loved the use of Chinese mythology, which gave the book a touch of fantasy, and the fact that the whole village was deaf and had to rely on their other senses. It was an unique concept. I also liked the various characters, especially Fei. She had to make some tough choices along the way, and following her journey with sound when her hearing was restored was fascinating. The romance between her and Li Wei was sweet, but I was a bit disappointed with the ending. It finished just a bit too neatly for my liking, but still a satisfactory read.
