Customer Review

on 3 September 2013
This is my first Ingo book, and I was so very impressed with the way Helen Dunmore explains and describes the Mer folk, and passionate way she describes the relationship the human characters have with the sea. Having lived most of my life in Devon and Cornwall, much of that by the sea, I felt deeply connected to this book.

For that alone, the book should have got a 4, but unfortunately the story really lost pace around the middle, and I found that the central themes and motifs were over-used in a repetitive way. I also felt that, despite the Mer' s essential otherness, which was well represented, the character of Malin proved too unlikable.
