In the Break Reviews
Wonderful author. Engrossing and thoughtful plot and characters. Great surfing narration/description. Highly recommend for teen and up.
IN THE BREAK is a story of friendship, loyalty, romance, tragedy, and the forever search of that perfect wave. In commanding style, Jack Lopez takes readers through the highs and lows of the characters, their feelings and emotions, and in the end leaves us with an unforgettable tale.
The descriptions of surfing in this book were incredible. There was edge-of-your seat excitement when the three teenagers are surfing off an island in Mexico. You feel like you are out there, like the dolphins, watching them.
I really enjoyed reading this novel. This is the first book that I have ever read that made me cry. The book is about a friend, his best friend, and his best friends sister. In the end, there is no fairy tale ending. The book left me in a depressed mood for awhile, but any good book will do that. This is the best book that I have ever read. If you love books about surfing, love, friendships, or sad endings this is for you.
It takes a lot for me to write a negative review of a book but I couldn't help myself with this one. This book was excruciating. It read as if it was written by an eight-year-old (which is actually an insult to most eight-year-olds). Ridiculous storyline, tedious writing, slow plot. Bored me out of my skull. There's a reason this book is not selling.
