I loved this book. I stumbled across it completely by accident when I was doing some research on scuba diving. The writing is beautiful,,,and detailed. I loved ALL of the characters in the book. It is NOT a happy book. Its a gut wrenching story about love, loss, marriage,,,,and of course cave diving. Im a reader. I like to read all types of books. Horror is my favorite genre. This book is different because you can't really give it a genre,,,,,,,its a bunch of stuff all in one. Great read.....
