3.5 starsJames Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser is still safe in his position as the numero uno hero in romantic fiction. But Heirik, the Viking gives him a run for his money.5-star story with a 3.5-star execution but still worth the readThis author has raw talent, and has it in her to be a writer possibly on a par with Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series. There, I said it. She's that good.Set initially in the future of the 22ndC, the heroine Ginn (her real name is Jen) is caught up [...]

Hach war das ein schönes Wälzerchen! 😊 ich hatte zwar meine Probleme am Anfang reinzukommen, da mir die Beschreibungen der Zukunft doch etwas ungenau erschienen, aber als wir uns dann in der Vergangenheit befanden, wurde es toll! Der Schreibstil war angenehm und die Charaktere gut durchdacht und vielschichtig. Endlich mal ein Buch in dem die sich das Liebespaar vor ernsthaften und nachvollziehbaren Problemen wiederfindet. Und Ginn war eine reife Frau und kein nerviger, dramatischer Teenager [...]

Wenn ich könnte würde ich 1000000 Sterne vergeben, für mich ein absolutes Jahreshighlight! Die Geschichte um Ginn und Heirik in Island ist so wunderschön geschrieben, obwohl es ein leichter, historischer Jugendroman ist kam für mich auf keine der 668 Seiten Langeweile auf. Ich kann das Buch einfach absolut jedem empfehlen, ganz großes Kino!

Beautiful Wreck is a book so imbued with stark beauty and raw emotive power that as you read it, your internal topography is rearranged - it's the kind of book that shifts everything you knew, or thought you knew, about writing and love. The world just looks different when you're done.The first thing you must understand when beginning this book is that it has a lot going on. Time travel. Vikings. A yearning so strong you can actually feel it. Love. Betrayal. There are even ponies and MMA fights. [...]

3/24: I've slept on it. Here are my thoughts:I don't know how to rate this book. If this were an indie book or a one of the big publishing houses, I would likely give it two stars (so, in other words, I wouldn't rate it on here at all). I'm sorry, I can't rate this book. I tried rating it at 2 stars for a few minutes, but didn't feel comfortable; therefore, I'm leaving it blank.The good: The love story between the two main characters is beautiful and heart-wrenching. This writer can write (i.e. [...]

I am very much not a romance novel person, but if they were all as well-written, well-researched, and well-constructed as this one, I'd be tempted to change my mind ;-) Beautiful Wreck is engrossing, thrilling, frustrating, and heartbreaking. I devoured it in about three days (and spent a good portion of them in a legitimate mope because I was vicariously tormented by dark, sexy, tortured vikings- that's how you know a book is good, when your husband asks "What's wrong?" and you answer woefully, [...]

3.5 starsJa! I liked it. You'll probably like it too!Now in the 22nd century, everyone lived—to some degree—in a world that had happened before. We studied and debated and reanimated the words and fashions of a hundred yesterdays and adopted them as though we’d run out of original things to be. In the aughts and teens, being part of an anachronistic culture had been unusual. Now it was the norm. Everyone had a place and time they loved, and they lived in it every moment they could.Jen, a l [...]

Every now and then you encounter a book that you know will be an amazing book from the very first page. This is such a book.A meadow would have been lovely. I’d come into the tank every day if I could feel lush, slippery grass between my toes, the gentle nudge of a breeze at my frothy hems. But the programmers couldn’t accomplish the immense reach and power of outdoor scenes. Not yet.I keep trying to put my finger why I knew that this would be a 5-star book from the start, and I think that i [...]

Thank you for reading, queuing & reviewing Beautiful Wreck! I would give five stars to the amazing experience I had writing this book, but I feel odd putting stars on my own work. I hope you enjoy it.

With a plot as exciting as it is bold, and with characters as real and important as family, Larissa Brown’s BEAUTIFUL WRECK weaves an intensely gripping tale about the strength of women and the love they carry. This is the story we’ve been waiting for.I loved this book with all my heart. I can't wait for EVERYONE to fall in love with it (and them) the way I did.

Fantastic debut time travel romance (22nd century to early 10th century Viking Iceland) that captivated me from start to finish. Dreamlike writing, vivid world building, fascinating characters, epic slow-burn romance—Beautiful Wreck certainly has a lot going for it. The attention given to research of Viking Iceland is impressive. Though I wouldn't have minded spending a bit more time in the 22nd century, because I found it fascinating as well and wanted to know more. That, however, wasn't much [...]

Disclaimer: I edited this novel.Review: My close association with this novel no doubt colors my review, but I hope you'll trust me despite that. This should be the first book you read in 2014. Larissa Brown creates setting, develops character, crafts plot in fresh, delightful ways. I grew to care deeply about even minor characters. The novel, set in a bleak future world and a lush 10th century Iceland will engross you. The book surprises and satisfies, avoiding romance and fantasy cliches, creat [...]

The best novel I have read in years. Grabs you from the very first page and won't let you go -- everyone who's read the galleys hasn't been able to put it down. Beautiful Wreck has caused MANY (GOOD) sleepless nights!

What an utter disappointment. The romance was stupid and annoying 'I love you, you can't touch me, I'm cursed, I'll never love him again, I need him, marry my brother (WHAT?)" blah blah blah. So many descriptions of things that contributed nothing to the story and had me skimming. It got 1 more star tacked on at the end for having a HEA.

I have actually been thinking a lot about this book, trying to work out how to write an honest review. On the one hand, I want to give it four stars for actually holding my attention and keeping me thinking about it for a while, but then it gets knocked down to one star for the ick feeling that I wasted so much time. The Good:1) Kept my interest in a time when few books do. (Big points there.)2) Liked the research that went into it.3) Some of the secondary characters I really liked. 4) There wer [...]

The only reason this book is on my TBR list is because it was chosen by a member of my book club that assures us that despite it's terrible cover it is actually a wonderful read. I am going to have to take her word for it because as I've said before, I do judge books by their covers and this one is truly awful. If it weren't for book club there is no way I would have ever chosen to read this.Ok read it. Here's why I've rated it 3 starts when I feel like this book has 5 star potential. First star [...]

3 'this-is-way-too-long' stars"There was someone real for me somewhere. Someone I could really know, could really love, and some part of me admitted I would never find him here in my room, my eyes shuttered, heart in the past."A pity. This was compared to Diana Gabaldon's Outlander - pffft. It sure can't hold a candle to that. Beautiful Wreck has such beautiful quotes about loneliness that I fully identify with. The world building of Iceland circa 920 was done beautifully. The setback - the stor [...]

This stunning, sweeping epic of tenth century Iceland immerses readers in a spare, cold, beautiful landscape, while giving from-the-future Ginn plenty of challenges and a hot blaze of adoration for a man everyone fears. Larissa Brown's carefully researched Icelandic community crackles with life and realistic details, and we experience it as outsiders, watching Ginn try to make her way through a complicated society that's based on long-held customs, societal beliefs, and basic needs. Beautiful Wr [...]

"as though we'd run out of original things to be"Historic reenactments are no longer hobbies for the few in 22nd-century Iceland, where all now pursue their favorite eras in costume, interacting only in the recreated past. Jen, a young linguist, brings her expertise in Old Norse language and gestures to a bold, new, fully-realized Viking longhouse scenario in a full-sensory sim "tank," where participants will be immersed in their beloved era, "minus the messy beauty of a real farm, the stink of [...]

This is not a lighthearted, quick romance. It took me a while to get into it (like, 100 pages). I almost put it down to pick something else up that's a little more lighthearted, more easy, but I'm glad I stuck it out because I would have missed out on a great read. I was laying in bed reading, knowing I needed to put it away if I was going to get good sleep, actually put it away, then thought about it for another 10 minutes and picked up to read again. Sleep is overrated, anyhow.There are parts [...]

Without a doubt, Beautiful Wreck is one of the best novels I've read recently. While on the surface it could be categorized under certain genres such as fantasy and romance, it dispenses with the usual clichés associated with these classifications and tosses them away to forge a new path. We are transported from a near-future, which is enthralled by visions of the past, to the imagined past of Iceland in the year 920 which full of beauty and hope for the future. We watch Ginn discover a reality [...]

This book contains a futuristic sci-fi kickass norse language nerd time travelling to meet a cursed viking, and if that doesn't sell it, then this is not the book for you This nutty plot beats The Time Traveller's Wife hands-down. It has all of Outlander's commitment to historical detail (imaginary or otherwise) without that problematic rapey-ness factor. Which really shouldn't earn a book bonus stars, but in this case I'm willing to pay them. Along with more bonus stars for the author managing [...]

Beautiful Wreck is a treasure of history and love. The beginning was hard to follow and confusing for me. However, I kept reading and was glad I did. The story unfolds into an epic tale of love and timetravel.Heirik believes he is cursed because of a mark, but Ginn is determined to show him the truth and love.Larissa Brown paints this medieval world with such color and detail I could feel the bitter wind and taste the saltwater in the air. She captures the real life world of the Vikings and the [...]

Wow, this book was amazing. The writing was wonderful, the story kept you wanting to read. I havent read a book like this in forever. The story started out a little confusing in the future and that was my only complaint about this book. The way she described the past, it was like being right there with Ginn & Heirik. I cant say enough about this book, and I am really greatful to the author for giving me a chance to read this. GET THIS BOOK PEOPLE!

If I could give six stars, I would. I adored this book. I began reading it at seven in the evening and read all through the next morning until I was done. The experience was like falling into another world, one where words transported, challenged, and oh so pleased me. Read it.

WellAll I'm going to say is that if Outlander (and subsequently Jamie Fraser) didn't do it for you in terms of time travel romance and you want something a little more introspective and a LOT more slow burn when it comes to the romance aspect, then I highly recommend Beautiful Wreck. This novel is so immersive and historically rich that you'll be transported and not want to put it down, but the writing is also honest and by turns full of heartbreak and love that never felt manufactured. I fell i [...]
