Persephone, West Buckland School

Beyond the Bright Sea

When I first picked up this book, I thought it was going to be very different to everything else I have read before. I picked up the book and looked at the cover and read the blurb and wondered how you could make an interesting story about a orphan girl on the island. The first chapter wasn't as gripping as I thought I could be. I carried on reading and as the plot developed, it got quite predictable. I think the book dragged on a little and got boring in places and where the exciting bits were, it only lasted for a few pages. I think this book could be more mysterious and maybe the writer could have built up the tension more. She could have added more plot twists so it would keep the reader guessing. Overall, this book was a bit of a let down and I think if you want a nice, relaxed book to read then this is the book for you.
