Adrift: A Reader's Review

S.M. Blooding rated it 4 of 5 stars false
This book instantly drew me in. The emotion was written very well in the opening scene. The imagery was crisp throughout the book, and there were times when I honestly felt like I was at sea.

This book has all the right structural elements. The plot was great! It really felt original! I love how Ms. Reeves entwined Devin and Meg’s lives together. It’s a whole lot more than just boy meets girl! This boy has a heavy weight of responsibility, and a really huge failure with grim consequences riding on his shoulders. Poor Meg is just trying to figure out how to swim in this new world she suddenly finds herself in.

The characters are great! I love Maura! LOL! I want a Maura. Poor Meg. Man! She’s in a really tough spot as she unravels just how much trouble she was born into.

And Omyn? OMW! That added so many layers to the characters and to the plot. I couldn’t stop reading! I love the mythology, the history, the build up! It was great!

Ms. Reeves, however, missed a few key emotional transitions, I think. When emotional transitions are missed, then you have whiplash-like mood swings, and/or unexplained behaviors. It was honestly nothing more than a missing sentence or two here and there. The ride could have been smoother, but it wasn’t like trying to ride a horse in an awkward trot either.

All in all, GREAT story! I definitely recommend it!
