The Silent History is a serialized novel for the iPhone and iPad about a generation of unusual children born without the ability to create or comprehend language but with other surprising skills.

The story is told using daily ‘episodes’; updates of around 1,500 words that are delivered through the app. This means that no matter how involved you are with the book, you’ll have to wait for the next part to become available before you can find out what happens next.
