Book Review: The Sea Inside by Vickie Johnstone
Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd

Writing Style - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
There is a terrific flow to this read, once the story gets going. Although the opening is necessary and integral to the ongoing plots, it does tend to feel a little directionless for a while. I think the saving grace in the opening is the realistic emotional turmoil of the main character. This is brilliantly written and laced with all the doubts and fears you would imagine.
The dialogue works well throughout, though with occasional very minor stutters; and the link between dialogue and descriptive is nicely done, which makes this a good read.

Character Development - 5.0/5.0 (Outstanding)
The characters grow on you very quickly. As you meet each cast member, they have attributes and faults that easily resonate with you, but equally, every one of them grows exponentially as they move through the story.
Even the secondary and tertiary characters are written in such a way that the reader latches onto them and feels them grow.
There are mythical and fantasy characters throughout the piece, all of whom are very individual, and each one adds to the value of the read.
Can't fault this.

Descriptive - 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
From beginning to end, this is a feast of excellent descriptive. The environs, atmosphere, the emotions and the tastes and smells; everything is there.
I know what you're thinking now... `Why only 4.5?'

Even though the author gets pretty much everything on the money, I was a little disappointed with the quality of the description as the book reached its conclusion. It wasn't `bad' by any means, but it felt as if the writer had simply started to run out of steam.

Was this dream in the ocean really a fantasy for Jayne? Was "the girl" wishing for another life in another world to escape the one she was living? Would she ever discover her true destiny? So many questions hung in the air as I read this suspenseful imaginative fable. I had to patiently wait and let the story give me the answers. I was so curious about where this was going to lead that I didn't want to put this book down. Beautifully told I enjoyed discovering a magical city under the sea.

Of all the positive messages shared in The Sea Inside, what rang the loudest for me was to always face your fears and never doubt yourself. You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to.

"The icy wind blew harder and I buried my face against the damp sand as it roared. In the distance, the wailing grew louder as if the sea itself was crying. Something knocked me flat on my back. Freezing cold fingers flickered in my hair and around my throat. I screamed, but I could not see a thing, just the blue. I yelled louder until I was sure my lungs must burst as the hands covered my face. Kicking my feet, I fought my attacker with my fists, but I could not feel anyone there. Was it some kind of ghost?"

I loved this book. It had a great main character who is transported into an under the sea world inhabited by a different species. Then her trials begin and the imagination of the author goes into overdrive but in a believable way.
