Book review: The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between OceansThe Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was fantastic. I was tearing up during the last chapter, and hoping beyond hope that the resolution would bring some peace to the characters.

The story was intense, and very emotional. I found myself very invested in all the characters, and loved that they were all a bit imperfect. There was no one villain to hate, or one character that was better than the others. Each had their own pain and flaws, which made them infinitely more interesting and easier to relate to as a reader.

There were multiple points of view, as the author switched between different characters telling the story and offering their perspective. The switching of perspective didn’t interrupt the story line at all, nor did the flashbacks. It remained a cohesive story the entire time.

Highly recommended.

I’m learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I’m a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. My job involves all things metadata related in any and all formats. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary (aka troublesome cataloger) and make no apologies for it. I have a passion for continuing education and teaching. I’m a newbie coder (still learning). I like to cook. I’m a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I’m car-free and bike/walk a lot. I’m learning to love running one stride at a time. I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude and a slightly neurotic rescue mutt.
