"Castle of Water" by Dane Huckelbridge

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐✰

I found this novel to be thoroughly engrossing. Sophie, a French architect was heading off on the second leg of her honeymoon. Barry, an American business man had just quit his job and was heading off to start a new life as a painter. The small Cessna they were both in didn't make it to their intended destination and Barry and Sophie washed up on a very remote, un-charted island. This story is told from a third person, narrator-style view point which adds to its allure. The narrator is able to share insights and keep us up to date on things happening off the island that wouldn't be possible through a traditional first person view point.

Unputdownable-ness: High
Ugly Cry Potential: Medium
LOL: Medium

Originality: High
Quality of Writing: Good
