A good solid story.
on January 17, 2012
As someone mentioned this is a re-release, & I recall having read it a long time ago BUT I enjoyed thoroughly it this time around! Yes, the smoking is tedious and silly in 2012 but that was in the 1980s and things were lots different then so it seems to me must be taken in that context.
Now, me, I liked the characters, no one got on my nerves & the nice twists & turns were fun cuz I for sure didn't see them coming, except of course one knows romance will out :)
I wasn't sure about the certificate for diving being required there, don't know about that neck of the woods? But because I had doubts, wasn't upset that it wasn't required AND loved the bit about how one can snorkel underwater using the air trick! Wish I'd known about it when I snorkeled off Antigua years back. Really liked the location and descriptions too. I could see how the heroine had gotten into such a rigid way of thinking as she went through so much at such a young age when it would have impacted her differently than if she'd been older, but, what was she, 18 yrs. old - that's pretty young, so didn't find her narrow views of relationships unrealistic. I liked Jonas and Moralas too - he had a dry sense of humor.
