"This is a densely enveloping book, presented with uncommon assurance for a debut novelist. And it succeeds in raising profound moral issues within the context of ordinary life." (New York Times)

If you could sum up The Dive from Clausen's Pier in three words, what would they be?
thoughtful, heart-wrenching, beautiful
What does Scarlett Johansson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I felt like her voice perfectly fit the character. You could hear the indecision and uncertainty as she dealt with this new path in her life.
Any additional comments?
I probably would not have read/listened to this book if I hadn't been pulled in by curiosity regarding the narrator. However, I'm so glad I was. I loved this story. It pulled me right in, I felt like it was floating through her life. I felt every pang of worry, guilt, heartache, panic, anxiety, love - all of it. It was wonderful and I was sad when it was over. Scarlett Johansson did a wonderful job.

Interesting but not fascinating!
I found the events and characters in the story quite intrigueing. But not fascinating. I don't know if it's suppose to be done that way but I did find the narrator Scarlett Johansen a bit flat. I felt she could have put more enthusiasm and oomph into the story. I was also disappointed by the ending because if I was the author I would have ended the story differently.
