I am going to start with review with a disclaimer This review is subjective from my point of view etc I thought this book was terrible bad no good You don t have to agree with me and you could think that this was the most AMAZING book and your eyes almost exploded from all the awesomeness that traveled through them to reach your brain which leapt in your skull with every sentence you read and that is fine I do not think that you are inferior to me Now on to my review Stop here for spoilers although you might regret it It s an awesome reviewI am not one to judge books by their covers although a good cover is always a bonus and this book has a excellent one Props to the graphic designer Combined with being on the New York Times Best Seller list and having an first rate premise I thought this one was a winner But I was wrong DEAD WRONG ok that is a little dramatic If I was describe my reading experience like the ocean tides sometimes I would be

The Light Between Oceans

Return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world Their choice has devastated one of them M L Stedman's mesmerizing beautifully written debut novel seduces us into accommodating Isabel's decision to keep this gift from God And we are swept into a story about extraordinarily compelling characters seeking to find their North Star in a world where there is no right answer where justice for one person is another's tragic lo. i found this story to be rather simple but theres a certain kind of attractiveness present in its simplicity the uncomplicated nature of the storytelling really allowed me to not only imagine but connect with the loneliness of being the sole lighthouse keeper on an isolated island the unforgiving beauty of the sea and the uaintness of a sleepy seaside australian town its definitely the writing and the atmosphere it creates that propels this story oh and tom tom deserves every good thing in this world and i know i would hop on the first boat out to his little island to play lighthouse keeper with him loli will say i wasnt really a fan of the plot in the second half of the book only because it made me resent isabel which in turn made me feel bad for tom but im not a parent so maybe i just couldnt empathise with her in that particular situation regardless the strong evocative ability of the storytelling definitely makes reading this book worthwhile

Iages and one stillbirth the grieving Isabel hears a baby's cries on the wind A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby Tom whose records as a lighthouse keeper are meticulous and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war wants to report the man and infant immediately But Isabel has taken the tiny baby to her breast Against Tom's judgment they claim her as their own and name her Lucy When she is two Tom and Isabel. The book 4 starsThe audiobook negative 1000 stars on that laterThis book was a soul crushing catch 22 The decisions the characters had to make and the options they are presented with range from totally awful to not all that great It was interesting to read a book that felt the entire way through like there is no chance for a happy ending Which bad option will be the outcome The audiobook is terrible So bad that I will never listen to another book by this reader Noah Taylor His odd inflections weird and freuent pauses poor enunciation and whispering made this painful to listen to As much as I did enjoy the book I was thankful when it was over

    I just can’t do this Halfway through but cannot go on There are people waiting for this library copy and the library is calling it back in so I am going to relinuish it to someone who actually wants to read it Given the moral choices that form the heart of the plot this could have been a much better book if it were you know well written Apart from the fairly good initial characterization of Tom Sherbourne as a WWI vet suffering from mem
