What themes did you notice in the book?

Post by Christina Rose » 20 Nov 2017, 01:52

There are typically multiple themes present throughout a novel. Which themes stuck out most to you while reading this book? Are there examples you can point to where these themes are most apparent?

I noticed that it is more on island hopping. I like the way the island is being described with the people in it. It is just like encountering Polynesian group.

The theme I saw in the book was that you need to be willing to fix your mistakes. Jennifer felt guilty for leaving Kylie and the team behind through the whole book, and when she finally went back and rescued them, she felt like a weight had been lifted off of her chest.

That was definitely something that plagued Jennifer throughout the novel.

I hope the author does not repeat his mistakes from this book again?

Theme I liked was that it is never late to correct your mistakes in life.
