Wreckage- Emily Bleeker

Wreckage

“Lies, good one at least, are smooth and well thought out. It’s the truth that’s sloppy.”

Is it me or have I been reading really quickly these days? I told my fiance it’s because of the kindle and maybe it is. Either way it’s been nice to be on a reading binge.

Wreckage tells the tale of Lillian and David two people who find themselves stranded on an island somewhere in the South Pacific after a messy jet plane crash. They are accompanied by Kent, the pilot, and Lillian’s mother-in-law Margaret. It is told in varying chapters from David’s point of view and then Lillian’s and it also goes a step further and goes from present day, where the two are being interviewed separately, and back when they were stranded.

I don’t like reading other reviews before I start a book because I want the experience to be all my own. I do sometimes skim through the first few lines of them on goodreads though. One person said that the dialogue was lacking substance and I would agree and disagree. There were times that I thought the dialogue, mostly between Lilian and her husband Jerry, was just not believable. Then there were other times that I felt the author was speaking from the heart.

The twists in this book were gut wrenching, from death and betrayal to touching on the subject of “two men and one woman stranded on an island together”. The last couple chapters are just a roller coaster ride of emotion; and while I was satisfied with the ending I did always hold out hope for Lily and David. The love they have for each other oozes of the page and you just wish that you had someone in your life that thinks about you the way that they think about each other. Without the plane crash and all.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am excited to see where this author’s career takes her.
