One aspect I enjoyed about this book was the information about deep sea diving. The descriptions felt realistic. I never questioned the author’s expertise. I was even interested in learning MORE about how much time and effort it took to get certified and the dangers of deep sea diving. The author did a good job of incorporating the information without overloading readers. But unfortunately, that part of the novel was one of the few things I liked. I didn’t like how the characters interacted with each other and the romantic plot felt forced. Other parts of the story were confusing and a few times it felt like the plot jumped around randomly. It actually felt spliced together, or maybe I just didn’t understand the train of events. Either way, this book didn’t feel entirely successful and I wouldn’t recommend.
