Hello everyone! Hope you're having a great 2014 so far. I'm here again to happily share to you guys my first book review for the year. It's for the book Deep Green by Trisha Haddad.
Okay, so this book kind of reminded me of Life of Pi at first, up until that moment when they reached the island. I'm not really a fan of stories set in an island no matter how beautiful the place may seem both in reality and in my head, and I'm quite surprised that I liked this one.
As for the main character, Leah Taylor. I like the fact that she's not another one of those clichéd damsel in distress. I was able to relate to her, especially on problems with make up and other girly stuff.
Musir was great too, and though I found Blue Mcree appealing at first, there was something intriguing about Musir that made me want to get to know him more.
As for Kent Carson. Well. I have to agree with Blue. He's a schmuck.
The dialogues were great too, though was a little miffed with Blue's hippie-ness (is that even a word?), and I had a hard time trying to figure out if I liked him or not. Well, I did at first, but as the story progressed, he started to feel like a different character.
Overall, Deep Green is a good read. The romance didn't come off as over the top unlike the other stories that are popping out these days, and the chemistry between Musir and Leah is believable.
Go read this book! :)
