Another review of the Salt of the Sea – Admin.
I thought that this book was very interesting. This book intrigued me within the first couple of pages. Once I had started this book, I was determined not to put it down, I just wanted to keep reading.
However, this book is quite depressing. It has got sad moments, but then it turns itself around. I would not recommend this book if you don’t like a lot of reading. This book can also make you think about you have just read. You have to think about the story line just to make sure that you understand it more.
Salt to the Sea is set in the olden times. It is set when Hitler and Stalin were at war. This book is all about how people are trying to board a ship called the Gustloff to try and get to a safe place to live. This book in a way reminded me of the Titanic because about three quarters of the way through it becomes very tragic and powerful.
