Although The Silent History plot is not the best, the idea is absolutely brilliant. The book works on its own, but the experience can be enhanced by exploring physical locations and the stories attached to them that other users have created. As a kind of literary GeoCatching, readers can also become writers and create stories to attach fictional memories to local venues.
