This book satisfied me on many levels. First, the author writes very well with certain passages and turns of phrase that had me reeling or saying: "I should remember this. It might come in handy."
Second, the protagonist Fin Border is a pretty ordinary man but -- man, oh man -- the author gives him a devastatingly captivating internal voice. Fin talks and behaves like a boring gentleman lawyer (mostly) but his thoughts reveal a cunning intellect, a biting sarcasm, a self-effacing masochism and many levels of nihilism. It is so much fun, I usually *skip through the dialogue quickly* to get to the internal monologue! Well, you know what I mean.
Third, The plot is convoluted enough and (most importantly) revealed slowly and carefully. No elaborate setups, no agonizing expository flashbacks. It keeps a great pace.
Here's how I came to buy this book. I picked it up by change when I was waiting in line to pay. I read the first 3 pages. I was hooked. End of story. I went home and I told myself I lucked out.

I read Walls of Silence in a week because I had a lot of time. The first half of the book was a personal drama with little action (though a bit of tension). The second half was all action and little drama. Rather than being a story with twists and turns, you know from the beginning that things are dark and the book slowly reveals the underlying secret. It was ok.
