    1 thought on “Uncharted: Story for a Shipwright

    1. I picked this book up for research--I didn't read the blurb, and I thought it was historical. I was wrong about the genre, but I'm so glad I made that mistake. I LOVED it. Honestly, I've been thinking about the tight story and the complex characters for a week now. I absolutely recommend it. The romance is lovely, but that wasn't my favorite thing about the book. It's told completely from the man's POV, and at first glance, he's super boring. but, you quickly realize he's got baggage, and a lack [...]

    2. “Uncharted: Story for a Shipwright” is formatted as a tale within a tale and the story within is captivating. I enjoyed this format because it shows life after the real adventure of “The Captain” and how his story is not the only one affected by his actions. This book directly addresses the way life is affected and perceived according to past events. The main character has lived his life as expected because of his relationship to a famous sea captain who had been lost at sea many years a [...]

    3. What would you do if everything you’ve ever known in your life is taken away and the only thing that remains is a fantastical heart-wrenching story to show for it? UNCHARTED: Story for a Shipwright is one of those books that you will think about for a long time afterward. J.B. Chicoine’s exciting debut novel about a boat builder in Maine who meets an exceptional woman will leave you breathless as you turn the pages.Chicoine’s writing is superb, with lyrical prose that envelops you like mor [...]

    4. Very well done. This book is secular and out of my normal genre of reading, especially with the sexual references but I did not feel like this book was in any way 'steamy or erotic'. They were just 'experiences' that I felt were used appropriately for shaping the characters.I really appreciated the POV being from a male though the story revolved more around the girl. The big reveal of Marlena history wasn't surprising but I wanted to know very much how Sam would respond. So while some things fel [...]

    5. I just love a story within a story, especially when it weaves the 'what-if' question throughout the storyline. In Uncharted, imagination takes a wild ride from the ordinary, everyday pace to the unbelievable, from a believable setting to a place where intense struggle just to survive is the ordinary. I loved leaping from the Maine boatyard setting to a tropical island!When the life journeys of two very different people cross paths--when ordinary collides with extraordinary--'what if' becomes ver [...]

    6. As a fan of many genres, I truly appreciated this story - at heart, literary fiction with elements of romance, adventure, history, and, yes, even feminism. The setting is vividly depicted, the characters (particularly Sam and Marlena) are carefully developed, and the plot is deliberately paced, unfolding in a natural, believable way. The central romance completely enthralled me - and yes, I'm always a sucker for both seafaring adventures and the story-within-a-story style of writing. So, I would [...]

    7. What do I think? This book, "Uncharted: Story for a Shipwright", by J.B. Chicoine, was excellent! It held my interest, and I hungered for more anticipating where the story was going to take me next. Typically, I like to spread my reading over as long a period of time as I can reading a section or a chapter each night. However, I could NOT put this book down, particularly after Chapter 31, (of 41). I'm still digesting the story particularly the ending. I'll add further notes at a later date.

    8. I was lucky to read an advance copy of this wonderful book and can highly recommend it to adventurers, armchair sailors, and romantics alike. Read my full review here:livewirepress/wordpres

    9. 3.5I first came across this book on a list of books set in Maine. The setting and beautiful cover intrigued me, so I added it to my summer reading list.The first 100 pages or so were rough. I obviously misinterpreted the description, because I was expecting a supernatural twist - time travel or something along those lines. I was a little befuddled about what direction the book was going. It didn't help that I was not immediately drawn to either main character. Sam was a little on the bland side [...]

    10. I actually got an ARC for this a long time ago, but couldn't figure out how to get it onto my kindle to read. Now, I am well versed in this and was finally able to read it. The concept seems to be pretty generic. However, the more you read, the more you realize how different the plot really is. I finally got into the story about halfway through. Also, I love stories about the ocean, especially Maine. I dream of visiting there someday.

    11. I thought this was a cute story, tho a little predictable. Overall, I liked it. A nice light, summer read. Made me wonder what it would be like to live as she did.
