Litfuse Blog Tour: Afloat

Author: Erin Healy

Genre: Life

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5

Type: Fiction

Number of pages: 356

Time period: Present (but it almost has a futuristic feel?)

Publisher and price: Thomas Nelson, $15.99

My overall opinion: Wow. In all seriousness, through most of this book, I had no clue what I was thinking of it. And no clue what was going to happen next. That being said, I was glued to it – hard to put down, easy to pick up. Erin is a splendid author, an excellent writer! The book was fascinating, and I recommend it especially for anyone who has enjoyed dystopian or futuristic fiction. While this book technically isn’t really futuristic or dystopian, I still came away almost feeling like it was. All in all, Afloat was a good book with a great story and some interesting Christian elements. While it didn’t make my favorites shelf, it’s still one that I’d recommend.

Great review. Didn't read up on this one much considering there were too many others I knew I wanted to read from favored authors - have to pick and chose, ya' know? I've heard some great things about Erin, so perhaps I'll look into this one.

Rosie, I haven't seen it much on the web either. However, this is only the beginning of the blog tour, so hopefully more reviews will turn up! :)

Rissi, thanks! I totally understand about having to pick and choose -- do it myself quite a bit! :) Yes, if your TBR list ever runs out (oxymoron, I know) then defs check this one out. :)
