Book Review #832
Ingo by Helen Dunmore
Rating: two stars (out of four)

I'm always intrigued by novels that incorporate mermaids and their interactions with people, so it is no surprise I picked up this book. I was a little disappointed with the content though. I wanted more answers than the story was willing to give. I felt like the reader was distanced from the characters, because I couldn't fully get into their heads and as a result I didn't enjoy them as much. The pull of the sea was a very interesting twist and I liked how the author handled it, it made me leery of the sea and also curious as to what it would do next. I might recommend.
