Book Review : The Wreckage by Emily Bleeker


wreckageThis book is seemingly about a Plane Crash and about the impact of Lies in the lives of the protagonists  – at least that is what the blurb seems to tell you.
In truth, to me, it was so much more…This is a novel about the human spirit and its fight for survival(whether with or without human dignity and humanity -is what we need to read and find out.)

It’s a novel about people’s relationships with each other and their reactions to the cards, they are dealt with, their coping mechanisms. If you were in Lillian’s shoes what would you do? If you were Dave how would you stay strong?

We get a front seat look into the coping mechanisms that help people deal with altered realities through the narration of Dave and Lillian. The truth will ultimately either set them all free or break whatever fragile relationships they have been able to resurrect.

The best thing about the book is the story which unfolds in three parts- the present, what REALLY happened on the island and what others have been told about what happened on the island. How the 3 parts intersect and collide is what makes the book interesting.

If all of this is not enough there is the mention of the mysterious Paul, totally absent in the initial part of the book that sets your anticipation on edge. How does his presence weigh in on the past and the present?

Emily Bleeker’s writing has a way of getting to the heart of the matter without much ado. She also hones in on one crucial truth about life that most of us have already learned along the way… When we have to choose between a perfect love and responsibility, who will the winner be?
