Salt to the SeaN an elephant If elephants were brought down *by research I try I really do but Sepetys s war stories do nothing for me Yes I *research I try I really do but Sepetys s war stories do nothing for me Yes I I m in the minority I was one of few who didn t love her debut Between Shades of Gray and much preferred her second book Out of the Easy Now she returns to World War II and once again I don t get itAs with her first novel she returns to World War II and once again I don t get itAs with her first novel feel a little uncomfortable being negative about these kinds of books This was a horrific time being negative about these kinds of books This was a horrific time some terrible atrocities were committed and I applaud the author for always focusing on the unknown but no less true parts of history Many of us know the tales of German and Polish Jews during the Nazi reign far less know what Lithuanian refugees faced Even fewer will know of the tragedy this book is about I like that Historical fiction that teaches me something is always appreciated However a few history lessons is truly all I took from this bookThe story is told in very short chapters of 2 3 pages sometimes ust a few sentences and the perspective umps between four different people Joana Florian Emilia and Alfred Personally this didn t work for me We spent so little time with each character before moving on that I constantly felt distanced from them never making an emotional connection In the beginning the rapid movement between perspectives even made it difficult to follow the storySepetys for me writes some of the most detached accounts of WW2 atrocities It honestly shouldn t be that hard to evoke sympathy or some feeling for these poor people but I genuinely felt nothing You know those expendable people that get gunned down in movies while the hero runs from the bad guys The ones who the camera brushes over and we never think about again That is how I felt when learning of all the casualties and brutality in this bookThe book is told in one long tedious ourney and features many flashbacks that failed to piue my interest The present is literally about them trekking across the icy landscape and having to show their papers to one soldier after another before finally getting to the boat they want to board I m sorry but it was so boringMaybe I could put it down to recently reading a fast paced exciting and horrifying book set during the Second World War Front Lines but to be honest I ust think the author s war stories are not for me I m an emotional reader and this kind of narrative leaves me coldBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store. Lithuanian with nursing experience; Florian a Prussian soldier fleeing the Nazis with stolen treasure; and Emilia a Polish girl close to the end of her pregnancy converge on their escape ourneys as Russian troops advance; each will eventually meet Albert a Nazi peon with delusions of grandeur assigned to the Gustloff dec. And Emilia who are all brought together on the Wilhelm Gustloff by the catastrophic war Like many people I forgot about this terrible part of the Second World War I first heard about this ship when I watched the movie The Imitation Game if this is indeed the ship that was mentioned in the movie yet I only connected the dots when things started getting awry in the novel Even so than they are already were What a tragic event So many lives HOW DID I NOT LEARN ABOUT THIS SHIP IN did I not learn about this ship in school Thank you books and movies if that s the shipBlog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin This swift footed kind hearted historical is intensely satisfying in ust about all the ways a novel can be intensely satisfying in ust about all the ways a novel can be Without further ado here are five things you should know about it before picking it up1 A lot of times historical fiction shows its work As a history major I don t mind a research filled brick of a book but I d think carefully about who I recommended it to Historical can be dense Salt to the Sea is not that book Sepetys chooses her word battles carefully for an incredibly fast read Short chapters elbow you and say read Contingent Lives: Fertility, Time, and Aging in West Africa just one right until the book is all gone2 I wanted to call this a thriller when I first started typing up this recommendation but the term s not uite right It s uite fast paced but THRILLER feels wrong it s not uite got that frantic electricity ADVENTURE is closer but still wrong Shouldn t there beeeps and a comic relief side kick in an adventure There s mostly ust soldiers and frostbite and abandoned soup in this one which is not the same Nevertheless you should know it s not a depressing book although sad things happen in it3 The characters are lovely There are many of them all deftly and lightly drawn and because they come from all ages and backgrounds the dynamics between them are ever changing It s told from four points of view to allow the reader to spin around the story from all angles and because each of the POV characters brings something very different to the table this swapping of eyes is satisfying rather than frustrating 4 Sepetys has two other historicals out that I enjoyed a lot but this one has headed briskly to the top of the list it s confident and stylish in a way that is really satisfying to see5 This novel is the natural successor to Code Name Verity a character driven accessible YA historical with all the feels you could desire and enough research to bring dow. Dvancing Red Army The ship was overcrowded with than 10500 passengers the intended capacity was approximately 1800 and than 9000 people including 5000 children lost their lives Sepetys writer of 'Between Shades of Gray' crafts four fictionalized but historically accurate voices to convey the real life tragedy Joana
