Silence is one of those books that grabs your soul and squeezes. In it, Endo explores the depths of human spirituality and psychology, both in their strengths and utter weaknesses. Producing a different response every time I revisit it, this book deserves to be read and reread. I will continue to be moved by it for years to come.
