Popular Book Night Sounds Night Sounds is an incredible set of character sketches of women in abusive situations and the men around them. It reads like a case study, especially for the main character, Samantha Jensen, who is a a successful professor and writer on the outside, but an abused wife with serious self-esteem issues on the inside. Secondary characters include a successful artist whose husband is going through a mid-life crisis and an irresponsible mother of two whose husband left her.While I liked the character sketches of the women, their tormentors, abusers, and enablers, I felt the story tried to take on too much. The physical and emotional abuse of Samantha, the demons she fought in her nightmares and her downward spiraling life were enough to fill a single novel. Instead the author packs in a plethora of secondary characters complete with problems that could take up a few more novels, and adds a "friendship" subplot to explore the interactions between these old friends and how they are complicated by the past and guilt they feel for not helping enough. Other subplots involve a Native American torn between two cultures, and the cliched cop who has to catch the bad guy that killed his brother.What happens is a compendium of issues that scatters our attention from the main theme--how a woman can suffer abuse and internalize it, and her personal journal of freeing herself from the abusive cycle and claiming her rightful place in a world where she is in control.I would give it a 4 star on character sketches, but 3 stars on plot and 3 stars on the writing.The plot jumps around quite a bit and the transitions are uneven. The point of view jumps around freely between paragraphs, and the transitions are awkward, either too long and drawn out, or nonexistent near the end, as if the author were rushing to finish. Cause and effect are also lacking in the subplots and the resolutions seemed rushed, and not motivated, like the author realized she was finishing and had to tie everything together into happily ever afters for everyone.example of no transition:In moments, Xavier would be coming for her. She had to collect herself, put on the mask that had served so well in the past, prepare for her final performance. Xavier watched as she picked at her food. Pam Young (2011). Night Sounds (Kindle Locations 4683-4684). Kindle Edition. ----The writing style is in need of a good editor. Example of a sentence that could have been simplified.Primed for violence by the series of frustrating hassles that had rained on him just like the wall of water now slamming against the windows here at Miami Airport, Jim crouched in front of the string of phones where exasperated businessmen hovered to grab one like coyotes at a kill. The Pam Young (2011). Night Sounds (Kindle Locations 906-907). Kindle Edition. Filter words, "she wondered", "she realized", "she felt" are used frequently, and the characters frequently stop all dialogue and action to analyze themselves.Many scenes start with this construction: While someone was doing this, .... someone else does something.While Samantha was waiting to call Fisher again, Susan was just waking in her apartment, still irritated with her dean, Pam Young (2011). Night Sounds (Kindle Locations 4351-4352). Kindle Edition. ----In summary, I liked the protag and understood why she did the things she did. I just wish all the other clutter didn't get in the way, and that I could actually hear the character's voice through a Deep 3rd POV or even a 1st POV. Instead, the head-hopping, the distancing of filter words, and the authorial intrusion of unnecessary explanation kept me from truly understanding her organically and internally. Instead, everything is told about her from an armchair as she "realizes" things.Because of the inability to really hear the character's voices, every character feels inauthentic, like walk-on sketches. At the end, everyone's problems are resolved with pat answers in the manner of case studies.The subject material is rich and I walked away with a better understanding of women in abusive relationships. I only wish the writing hadn't gotten in the way of the story.Disclosure: This review was part of the WoMen's Lit Cafe Review process. They require honesty. I received the e-book free as part of the program, and I do not know the author personally
