Actual Rating: 3.75/5 stars
Review: This was another interesting book from Ruta Sepetys. I really liked the storyline, and it was an interesting take on the typical WWII historical fiction. However, because it is World War II historical fiction, the political setting and backdrop were aspects I've grown a bit weary of. This is why I couldn't bring myself to give the book a full 4 stars, although it didn't feel like a 3.5-star rating or lower. Despite this, I really enjoyed the book, its story, and the characters. I honestly think that Sepetys has a fantastic way with words and writing. I can't wait to read more of Sepetys' work. ( )

Probably more like a 3.5-3.75. Sepetys has written a fictionalized World War II story based on a tragedy that has received little notoriety: the torpedo sinking of a ship carrying refugees and wounded soldiers, Wilhelm Gustloff, where more people died than on the Titanic or Lusitania. I found the very short chapters and alternating narratives detracted from the story of teenagers dealing with personal tragedies, the terrors of war and their own terrible secrets. grappling with the bitter cold, the ever-present danger of falling bombs, and their own dark secrets. Besides the history lesson, the book's other strength is the bonds and trust that develop among the teenagers. ( )

3.5

So, I've thought it over a bit and I think the main problem with this book was the short perspectives. It made it really hard for me to really fall into the book because every two or three pages I was being thrown into someone else's head, but I did enjoy seeing the same scenes in different perspectives without repetition. Unfortunately, this did make it harder for me to enjoy the story in the way that I had Between Shades of Grey, but let's be honest that book is hard to top. The writing was still beautiful and so descriptive even of the tough and gritty which I've come to expect from the author. Her characters were still very down to earth and real, and I felt for them, just not all time, because, again, those short little chapters made it really hard to experience one character emotion for more than a little bit. Still worth the read and the hype though! ( )

From the Author's Note: "Books join us together as a global reading community, but more important, a global human community striving to learn from the past." ( )

On January 30, 1945 three torpedoes from a Russian submarine tore through the refuge ship, Wilhelm Gustloff, sinking her within sixty minutes. The ship was tremendously over-crowded and of the fifteen thousand on board, at least nine thousand perished. This is the deadliest marine disaster in history, and yet, many of us have never heard of it. In Salt to the Sea, author Ruta Sepetys tells the story of the sinking and of some of the refugees who were aboard her.

The story is haunting, gripping and heart-wrenching as we are introduced to a small group of refugees who are fleeing the oncoming Russians. This is a mixed group of people, young and old, from various countries, all trying to stay ahead of the invading army. One member of the group, Joana is a Lithuanian nurse and her nursing skills are in demand which allows her to bring her friends on board as well. Also travelling with them is Florian, a Prussian who had been working for the Nazis restoring art, but he deserted once he realized that most of the officers were lining their pockets with the artwork, not keeping it safe for posterity.

The story unfolds through four different narrative voices, yet it is concise, clear and emotionally involving. Although this is considered a YA story, it is so well told and written that it appeals to all ages. The author is able to place us among these people and have us caring about them and wanting to see them make it to a place of safety. Salt to the Sea is both a beautiful and tragic read that sheds a light on a little known event in history. ( )

Four out of five stars. I enjoyed most of this book. However some parts seemed unnecessary and a little slow but over all it was a nice quick read that kept me interested. I wish that there was more to the ending, it was a bit difficult to understand and I re-read it twice just to make sure I got the message on who Florian was reading the letter from. I thought it was a great YA read with nice use of language and context. Alfred was annoying, and after reading a few of his chapters it was refreshing to know that even the other soldiers thought so too. Sepetys really did a great job developing the characters, making you love some of them, feel sorry for some, feel sad for some and be annoyed with some.
