He fails, Tarl is taken away, and Hari escapes, vowing that he will save Tarl from Deep Salt whatever the cost. Jul 10, Simon rated it liked it Shelves: young-adult , dystopia. I first read this book many many years ago now. Perhaps before I even started high school. I remembered it fondly as a good book, although, I couldn't remember exactly what happened.

So I picked it up again to refresh my memory. Admittedly, I had to drop a star. I almost dropped two stars because of the last chapter which equaled five pages.

But due to sentimentality, I still liked this book. It's very simply written. And very typically New Zealand fantasy, I think. I've noticed tha I first read this book many many years ago now. I've noticed that books by New Zealand authors are very I can just tell I'm reading a book by a Kiwi, usually. It isn't a bad thing. I think our authors generally just have a more direct, simple style of writing. Hell, just take my reviews for example. Despite being 'simple', as I put it.

It's also quite dark for a young adult book, which I quite like.

The cast is actually very racially diverse as well, which is nice. And the two protagonists are both very different and travel their own developmental arcs. I think, besides the simplicity, it's biggest fault was the cheesiness too. Even though I just said it's quite dark. The ending particularly is very cheesy, I think, with its sudden romance and happily ever after. But otherwise, it was a decent read. I wish more books by New Zealand authors were read and appreciated too.

Oct 26, Sophalopha rated it did not like it. To start, I believe the book didn't hook me in the beginning which affected my overall reading experience. I felt as if the introduction was an info dump, which in the end, left me just confused and not excited to read the rest of the book. If I had read this first chapter in a book store, I would've put it down. Secondly, the underlying plot in an entirety, was not well done.

In the start of the book, we are told that the main problem will be that Hari must find his father and save him from the deep salt. However, halfway through the book, this problem is resolved. I believe that the author tried to fit too much into one book and as a result, it was hard to read.

To end with, the characters were so unlikeable that I wanted to stop reading. Usually in a novel, you fall in love with the characters and the book becomes so gripping that the pages seem to be turning on their own. However for Salt, this was not the case. Hari seemed to be the polar opposite of likeable, he is cruel and most often times naive. I understand why Maurice Gee wrote him like this, because Hari had grown up in a ruthless environment, but some more character development would've been nice. Pearl is the other main character, who in my opinion is one sided.

Her backstory is cliche and has been done many times over, as well as the fact that she is just a rich snob. Sep 04, Max Oppenheimer rated it it was ok. The book Salt by Maurice Gee was a bad choice of mines. At first, I thought it would be a cool book because of its inquisitive title and because it is a part of a trilogy. I was looking for a book series that would take me at least 3 months to finish.

The book tries to not make it repetitive by adding some additional scenes that have tom do with the character's person The book Salt by Maurice Gee was a bad choice of mines. The book tries to not make it repetitive by adding some additional scenes that have tom do with the character's personal life.

Their personal life is very interesting and if the book would of committed more to it I would have enjoyed it way more. I would definitely recommend this to people that love repetitiveness and that like TV shows, you may know that tv shows are very repetitive but they try to keep it interesting by implementing personal life into their jobs or something similar.

I would also recommend it to people that don't finish the book, at the beginning of the book it is cool and all but it is also very boring in the middle to end, I personally was skipping pages a lot and I could still keep up with the book.

Jul 11, Monica Chin rated it really liked it Shelves: summer-read-books There was so much going on in the novel, many themes like love, racism, discrimination, I'm not sure if this is a theme but It is about a journey of a young boy retaliating against people of another race who have taken hostage of many men from his people including his father to a forbidden place called Deep Salt to excavate.

The young boy's enemies were digging up powerful minerals embedded deep under the surface. These minerals were so strong they emitted blinding lig There was so much going on in the novel, many themes like love, racism, discrimination, I'm not sure if this is a theme but These minerals were so strong they emitted blinding light, this light will poison upon impact and will crawl under your skin making you deathly ill.

This mineral, salt, was viewed as a weapon that could be unleashed to the world by war and conquer which was exactly what the cruel men whom Hari wanted to kill were after. It was rumored that anyone who works in Deep Salt never returns to the surface The young boy, Hari, set off on a rescue to save his father, seething with hatred and anguish for the men who took his people away to their deaths.

On his way to Deep Salt Hari meets Pearl, who lived a life so different, she lived in a luxury mansion dining with knives, forks, spoons and comfort- unlike whatever Hari had experienced. Hari and Pearl were total opposites, who had hated each other because Hari was from the wild forests not in the posh world Pearl had lived in. Instead of seeking vengeance Pearl wanted freedom and wanted a life shared with her closest bond, not her family but her maid. As the truth of Deep Salt unraveled Pearl decided to help Hari save his father and fight against the people she was born into. A lot more happened in the book, and I skipped plenty of information about each of the characters so that I did not spoil the story!

It is hard remembering what had happened because I had read it in the beginning of July and I regret that I didn't write a review earlier! Overall I enjoyed the book because there was adventure and suspense as well as seeing Hari and Pearl evolve and change which to me, is key to an interesting story. Sep 22, Natasha Wilson rated it really liked it. I also read it because i i had read other novels by Maurice Gee such as "Under the Mountain" and had enjoyed them. My favourite character is Hari, the main protagonist. He is a teenage boy living in a distopian world, where half the population is wealthy and happy, however the other half lives in extreme poverty.

Hari is in the less fortunate half. His mother died when he was young,and i decided to read this novel because my family owned it, and i had heard good reviews of this book. His mother died when he was young,and so when his father is taken away by the government to work in the Deep Salt he becomes determined to save his father from the fate millions faced before him.

With the help of Pearl , a privileged girl running from an an arranged marriage and her maid Tealeaf, they set off on a dangerous journey. Hari was my favourite character because he was determined and tough, though beneath his cool exterior he had an enormous heart. He also makes the otherwise quite dark novel humorous with his witty and sarcastic comments.

We were thrown in prison together. We were both getting sent to Deep Salt. But during our time in prison, he hung himself. I could've stopped him, but if a man wishes to die, that is his choice, and I need to respect it" THis is my favourite quote because it made me understand that life can be worse then death, and that it is only somebody's own decision wether or not they take their life and should always be.. I agree with this quote immensely. This book made me think more deeply about the future of our world, and how dark and twisted it could become.

This is because "Salt" is set in a cruel future, and this may me similar to our future if we continue to mistreat our world and each other. Jun 23, Kathleen Dixon rated it it was amazing Shelves: speculative-fiction , children-s. I read this in one day. The train trip to the city was about 40 minutes, then I caught maybe half an hour at lunch time, then grabbed a couple of 10 minute slots while waiting for lectures Conference presentations.

There is adventure and telepathy and social comment and a little romance. Gee writes a skilful story that draws the reader in and makes the characters and storyline highly believable. I must pick up as many of his older titles as I can! What is salt? No one really knows what they mine in Deep Salt, all people know is that once you're sent there, you never come back.

When Hari's father is captured by Company cronies, Hari will do whatever it takes to get him back - even if it means going to Deep Salt himself. Pearl on the other hand, she IS Company, but wants out of that cushy life. She and her extraordinary maid are determined to get out of the city -but escape is as challenging as they'd feared. What do these two yo What is salt? What do these two young people have in common? How do their paths cross?
