Read from February 08 to 09, 2012

A good romance read. Read it in one go, 2 hours - which says a lot about the author's excellent writing style because most of the novel is just two people stuck on an island and trying to find enough water and food to stay alive. Remember that movie with Tom Hanks, castaway? It was so deathly boring and this book could have been the same way - but the development of the relationship between the two characters was intriguing enough to keep you hooked. I liked how the couple had to face reality after they got off the island and we got to see the relationship take on other challenges. And the age difference thing was handled well. I would have been SO angry if there wasnt a 'happy' ending. These two endured so much hell that it would have been way too cruel not to give them something good.

LOL - Hi Sieni, I liked it. Good for when you're in the mood for a romance read with a bit of depth.
