Dark Water Rising by Mariana Hale

Post by BasketballLuver on Wed Mar 24, 2010 1:03 pm

Are you a type of person that enjoys reading historical fiction books? Do you like reading books that are a reenactment of an actual event? Well, I have a book just for you. Last summer I was assigned to read Dark Water Rising. Originally I would have turn down this book if it wasn't something I had to read. I am not a fan of this type of genre, but surprisingly I stayed up all night to finish this book. It was suspenseful in a odd way. It wasn't like a mystery, but more like "what happens next? Is he okay? Did he get hurt?"


Dark Water Rising
by Mariana Hale is a book set during the Galveston Storm of 1900. Itís an unforgettable story of survival and struggle in the face of a natural disaster. It shows how Galveston, Texas, one of the booming cities of the twentieth century, is filled with opportunities but it also shows that just one devastating hurricane can bring a nightmare. The book represents true feelings experienced during this great storm. It shows how just one hurricane can bring loss and anxiety to so many people. A beautiful and memorable work that endures the depression emerged by the great waves of the hurricane. Mariana Hale draws a vivid description of pain and suffers.

Seth wants to be a carpenter but his father moved the family to Galveston so that Seth can become a doctor and itís the end of his dream. His last few weeks of summer have not been so bad, though. Seth has found his first real job as a builder, and there is a girl he has an eye onÖuntil a storm warning is raised.

A book filled with intense conflict and heart pounding pain. Mariana Hale does a great job placing you into the story as if it was you experiencing the great hurricane yourself. This book symbolizes the destruction of the Galveston 1900 Storm and how more than 3,600 homes and businesses were destroyed.

Yeah, at first I really wasn't enjoying it since I am not a historical fiction reader, but it turned out to be a very good book. I love the purpose chosen to write this particular book. =]

You tell me how you like it once you do read it. Have fun. The best thing I liked about this book was the pictures I could draw in my head. It was a really sad book with great sentimental value, though. =]

This seems really nice as in a book; the book may be all sad, though. I am not into historical fiction books either, but yes, this one sounds...well, I want to know what happens next! I am gonna give this book a try, sometime. Thanks for sharing BasketballLuver!
