Book Review: Afloat by Erin Healy

25 05 2013

Title:  Afloat

Author: Erin Healy

Genre:  Christian Fictions, Suspense16124118

Publisher:  Thomas Nelson

Available:  NOW

Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This is a very different sort of novel – much different than I was expecting.  The story centers around a floating community, a new concept in living.  As the work is being completed on parts of the complex, a giant sinkhole traps some of the residents and workers in it.  As the group decides what to do, conflict arises.  Who can be trusted?

I had a very hard time with this story.  The plot line surrounding the city/sinkhole kind of put me in a cloud.  There were lots of characters and different points of view, which was not only confusing but kept me from feeling connected to any of the characters. Most of them were quite unlikable as well.  But once it got rolling in the second half of the book, it became difficult to stop reading.  Very suspenseful.  I have not read any books by Ms. Healy before, and I don’t know if this work has convinced me to read her other work.

The book does have a Christ-centered message, so if that kind of thing offends you this is not the book for you.

Recommend for: Fans of Ms. Healy’s work and those who like suspenseful/fantasy stories with a Christian twist.

Note:  I received a copy of this book from the publisher.  All opinions expressed are my own.
