Salt to the Sea

Salt to the sea is quite a fast pace, intense adventure about 4 people; Florian, a Prussian thief, Alfred, a selfish cocky soldier, Emilia, a young polish girl and Joanna, a Lithuanian nurse. In the book we see through 4 perspectives and we go through 4 different, exhilarating journeys during world war 2. All of these characters except Alfred are all fleeing to the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship used by the Germans for evacuation. This book by Ruta septys is very fast paced interchanging between characters constantly refreshing my mind every time I turn a page. I would rate it 4.5 out of 5. a formidable and emotional book.
