We didn't see the story through her perspective since she was dead but from the back story told by everyone else, she just seemed too perfect to me. Otherwise, everyone was interestingly flawed and the character development was great.

I was so emotionally invested in it from the first page and I had a hard time not reading it. I had to know what happened to Greg and Tess

Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples. I was so emotionally invested in it from the first page and I had a hard time not reading it. I had to know what happened to Greg and Tess. Such a moving book and loved the ending.

Elin Hilderbrand is an American writer mostly of romance novels. Hilderbrand's novels are typically set on and around Nantucket Island where she lives with three children. She was born and raised in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University, and was previously a teaching/writing fellow at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop. The New York Post called Elin Hilderbrand "The queen of summer beach read".

Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.

The Castaways: A Novel Hardcover – 7 Jul 2009. by Elin Hilderbrand (Author). I recently discovered Ms. Hilderbrand's books. I read three before choosing The Castaways. I was so disappointed in this last choice. Reasons for my dismay include trudging through portraits of self- absorbed immature adults who drank way too much, representations of lethargic parenting, intrigues that had beyond-detailed back stories (I truly began not to care about them since I wasn't enjoying the characters).

An intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life from bestselling and beloved author Elin Hilderbrand.

I just finished this book and I did like it . I do enjoy how this author writes, very clean and not too wordy. I like that she is able explain the scenery, the weather the feeling of any one of the characters without going on and on for pages. The main characters in this book, eight best friends, were well developed and you got to know the type of person, their personality and their flaws all in one. And some were very sad, self centered individuals. They are all trying to come to over come their grief in the loss of one of the couples due to a drowning who leave behind 7 year old twins. And they all have secrets. It was a good read, but toward the end I do believe it dragged on to me and could of been wrapped up in under the 420 pages. But I do enjoy her writing. I'll continue reading her other books. Her stories do flow nicely.

This was my first Elin Hilderbrand novel and I definitely enjoyed the read. The story centers around a group of 4 couples, who are best friends, in the aftermath of the death of one couple in a boating accident. The story is told from the perspective of each surviving member. As I said before, I really liked it but wow, what a [...] show! You think you are reading about 8 ordinary, albeit somewhat wealthy, people but behind closed doors, there were hidden desires, illicit affairs, drug abuse, post traumatic stress, jealousy - you name it. There was not a single character in this book that I didn't like, although I would say my least favorite was actually the female victim. We didn't see the story through her perspective since she was dead but from the back story told by everyone else, she just seemed too perfect to me. Otherwise, everyone was interestingly flawed and the character development was great. I think my only complaint was that there was sometimes too much back story for my liking. I know the author used flashbacks to allow the readers to better connect with the characters but there were times when I ended up skimming paragraphs.

A good read and I will definitely read more from the author!

I enjoyed this book, as I knew I would, because I do enjoy the way Elin spins us into the brains of all of her characters. I believe this is the 6th one I have read during this bleak and snowy January. Her books take me out of the present and deposit me on the quaint little island where I have always longed to visit. This one was a bit different because it was the unravelling of a mysterious accident. It didn't hold my attention like the others did which is why I only rated it a four rather than five stars.

When Prominent Nantucket couple Tess and Greg die in a sailing accident, their friends are left with questions as secret affairs and relationships are uncovered. Were there deaths truly accidents, or did something more sinister happen on the salty Atlantic waters?

Told in multiple POVs by the friends and family of Tess and Greg, readers are privy to secrets the characters don't share with each other. Elin Hilderbrand is one of my favorite writers, but CASTAWAY isn't one of my favorite of Hilderbrand's books. She could have done a better job distinguishing the voices between POVs, and creating more tension to fasten the pace. However, CASTAWAYS was a fun beach read, though not one that stayed with me after I finished the last chapter. I kept expecting something with more depth to appear in the pages, but unfortunately that never happened.

I recently discovered Ms. Hilderbrand's books. I read three before choosing The Castaways. I was so disappointed in this last choice. Reasons for my dismay include trudging through portraits of self- absorbed immature adults who drank way too much, representations of lethargic parenting, intrigues that had beyond-detailed back stories (I truly began not to care about them since I wasn't enjoying the characters). Lastly, tying the story together at the end was contrived and too flat in comparison to more spirited endings with a sense of thoughtful closure in the other three books. I will keep reading Ms. Hilderbrand. I just hope I don't meet these characters again.

This is a fascinating character driven story. These close friends' lives are so intermingled there is bound to be much beneath the surface. The death of one couple while sailing opens Pandora's Box for the others and forces them to come to grips with their demons, mistakes and their pasts, but also brings out their strengths. The web of their friendship is skillfully revealed a layer at a time by a talented author whose ability to hone in on the details carries the reader along swiftly through the choppy sea of eight complicated lives, both blended as a group and as separate individuals.

While I struggled a bit at first to keep everyone straight, they quickly morphed into clear characters in my mind's eye, each with distinct personalities full of glories and flaws and remained true to themselves throughout. The incorporation of the music that accompanied their lives as well as tidbits about the products they used and places they went built a vivid picture that I thoroughly enjoyed. I found the story very much a page-turner. It rang true as to why people develop such close bonds, what they get from one another and what they give, the fragility of it all as well as the glue. Definitely a good read.

Aw, this is a good one. Eight best friends are suddenly struck by tragedy, and the fallout is, well, complicated. Secret love affairs and simmering personal problems abound; throw in a couple of adorable orphans and you’ve got the makings for an engaging summer read that is Hildebrandt’s bread and butter!

Characters as well developed as the Castaways are a rare treat. The book weaves together their individual stories as well as their place in the group - the problem solver, Mother Earth, money man, cheerleader, rock star, ingenue, predictable, social director. The tales of their vacations together was an added bonus. How they each mourned the loss of Teas and George spoke to the relationship they had with them. This story is not soon to be forgotten!
