Book Review: Diving Into the Wreck

To start the book reviews i chose this novel that i ordered recently because of reading an excerpt on Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s website. (Good site to follow if you’re interested in what is going on with the publishing indrusty)

Book facts

– 268 pages.

– First person narrative.

“Boss loves to dive historical ships, derelict spacecraft found adrift in the blackness between the stars. Sometimes she salvages for money, but mostly she’s an active historian.”

The book has a nice glossy cover, the paperback version is quite wide which i’m not used to seeing much. I hope the next book is made in same way, i like the look and feel of this book and would want the next one to match the size and look.

This book is effortless to read, which i personally prefer in books. There is a sense that space is a dangerous place where things can go wrong when diving the wrecks out there. There is some good naming of ships, places, and characters in this book. Characters are well fleshed out and interesting. The world building is good but doesn’t take too much space.

Rusch writes the story in a way that the SF concepts seem fresh and interesting.


Very minor disconnection between the three parts of the book and at times some of the motives of characters seem a bit too convenient but nothing that would really bother a reader.


 Diving Into the Wreck is not a hard read SF book and worth getting if you enjoy a fun easy ready that keeps you turning the pages. I didn’t have to take breaks reading this book, nor did i put it down much. I will be getting the next in series: City of Ruins.

In “Diving Into the Wreck” Rusch greates the universe and setting that leaves you wanting more. So if you get this book know that though the ending is quite standalone there will be questions left. Elitist Book Reviews “Diving into the Wreck” – I recommend this review to get a good picture what this book has to offer. (its spot on)
