Hush: An Irish Princess’ Tale by Donna Jo Napoli

Hush: An Irish Princess’ Tale by Donna Jo Napoli

I read this under the recommendation of Maci, who really enjoyed this book. I did not like it, I kept waiting for it to be what she had described to me. I kept waiting until the very end. This book is about an Irish princess who is kidnapped. She refuses to speak, and this creates an air of mystery about her that captivates her kidnappers. This book follows her along her journey with her different Masters. The beginning was slow, and it really bugged me how stuck up and prejudice the Melkorka was. The ending was really disappointing to me. It just added another layer of disappointment to the book. It was supposed to be a really cool book about being kidnapped and being defiant while it just ended up being a story about a princess that is kidnapped and turned into a slave that refuses to speak. It was cool seeing the Irish take on Norse mythology, but overall this book was a huge disappointment. This book reminded me of the book East by Edith Pattou. These two books are very similar because they both involve Norse mythology and kidnapping. But the thing that I like about East more than Hush is the defiance. In Hush Melkorka just acts like a spoiled princess. Overall, I would not recommend this book.
