The Light Between Oceans: A Novel - M.L. Stedman

Review originally posted [here].


I had a difficult time getting through this book. The writing was good, the plot was interesting, and I enjoyed the characters but for some reason the book didn't grab me. I wanted to know what happened in the end but I could have easily put the book down and walked away. However, for being a book I felt very neutral towards, it did make me cry at the very end - only the second book to ever make me do so (and when I say cry, I mean hysterically). I'm having mixed feelings about it. I would recommend it, and looking back at the book it was enjoyable, just not magnetic like many have reviewed it as such. A bit hyped up but still a good book.
