Deafening Silence


Deafening Silence is Stephanie’s debut novel published in April 2018 by Amber Publishing Limited. The novel is a story of a young woman’s journey to destiny through war and sacrifice. How much of the past must she know to help her shape her country’s future?


  • Incorporating the literary inclinations of Professor Adimora Ezeigbo as well as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the author Stephanie Odili dares where creative titans have trod, perhaps being the youngest as of now, to have embarked upon a touching and troubling theme as the digging for truths about Nigeria Civil War, The Biafra Dream, and its many unattained realities.

  • It was a really engaging novel. it got me constantly trying to figure out which part was real, and what was fiction because of its storytelling style...I enjoyed the use of the Nigerian lingo it speaks volumes of its originality...Chapter nine was one of my favorites, maybe my best, oh Destiny! I enjoyed the narration and the depiction of the war a little too much. it really drew me in. Chapter 14 was very explosive, wow! another contender for my best chapter.

  • Deafening silence, a meal for lovers of historical fiction, uses a touch of Nigerian Language (Igbo) to give great insight to mouth-watering adventures some of which include a lifestyle of a British-Nigerian, born into a lot of privileges. The book also gives an insight into a non-biased story of the Nigerian civil war and all the tragedies attached to it from the point of view of individuals that experienced it. The book was written in such a way that uplifted the Nigerian Culture and Language.

    22 is an anthology of poems and short stories that will provoke emotion. Real-life lessons and experiences of different people are shared, with the hope that peace is found within the reader. A poetic bible, small enough to carry with you everywhere.


    • I spent 3 hours at the car wash, not because of my car but because I was glued to your book...I just sat back and read it all. You found a way to put in your character in every word you wrote. You are bold...realistic and relatable

      - Juliet Mafua, BBC Africa reporter.

    • If the book were just these four chapters—The Road That Lies Ahead, Shaking Tables, Isn’t It Ironic, and Wives and Husbands—I would still count it very much worth it. The build-up of chapters was mad, as amazing as Malcolm Gladwell’s books. I’ll definitely read it a couple more times.

    • 22 was a deviation from what I am used to reading...The book held me down and I read it in one sitting, moving from story to poem, I admired the author's ability to share in a way that made you feel like it was your story and you were as much a part of it as the writer. It was a super, worthwhile investment of time, even for the third time.
