Salt to the Sea

by Ruta Sepetys

Salt to the sea : a novel

This is a historical fiction novel with a focus on World War II. It is also a romance told from multiple points of view.

I did not like it, but I tolerated it. I was not drawn to the characters, so I was not emotionally affected by their stories. The novel itself also began to lag about half way through, becoming impossibly boring, yet picking back up for the last hundred pages or so. World War II has such a rich history, I'm disappointed with what this author did with it.

I would not recommend it, but this book will probably appeal to younger readers or people who do not read often, or only read on the plane. People who would like to gain a bit of history would also benefit from reading this book.
