Reviews and Reader Feedback

"With each dive Claire and Klaas make, Burger creates an atmosphere and tone so textured, lush and alive that it is as if the reader is beside them: tasting the salt, smelling the kelp, witnessing the sea life, all while experiencing the feel of the water's might and gentle caress. The descriptive and characterisation genius of John Steinbeck and Ernest Hemingway have played a big role in shaping my writing style,' says Burger. As influential as these authors may have been, Burger has created a novel that embodies a vivid writing style of its own." Tiah Beautement, Sunday Times - full review

"If you are fascinated by the life of the sea, you cannot miss this poignant story of close encounters and connections under the waves. Ultimately this is a love story, but it is also a travelogue of undersea adventure, a lyrical re-telling of myths and legends of the deep and a burning inditement of poachers and polluters. It is no surprise that the author, Lynton Francois Burger, is a marine biologist, master diver and award-winning underwater photographer who has explored the oceans of the world. His first-hand knowledge, experience and passion are obvious in the scenes he describes so vividly, although they are depicted through the eyes of his characters. Claire, Klaas and the other characters, including the Mozambican fisherfolk, are vivid and well-defined and the descriptions of land and sea are downright poetic." Jennifer de Klerk, Artslink - full review

"The underwater scenes are masterfully done. It felt like I was down there." Reader

"A human and nature story beautifully interwoven. The book is an enchantment." Reader

"I laughed and I cried and I got angry and I fell in love ... just what I look for in a good read." Reader

"One of those rare books where you are transported somewhere else - learning and being entertained at the same time." Reader

"Words are not enough to express the emotions that are evoked when reading this evocative novel." Reader
