Eyes Like the Sea

Eyes Like the Sea by Mór Jókai
By: (1825-1904)

Eyes Like the Sea by Mór Jókai is a beautifully written novel that follows the story of two star-crossed lovers, Arpad and Timar, as they navigate through obstacles and challenges to be together. Set against the backdrop of a Hungarian seaside town, the author paints a vivid picture of the setting, making it come alive for the reader.

The characters are well-developed and complex, each with their own motivations and desires. Arpad is a charming and passionate young man, while Timar is a strong and independent woman who defies societal norms. The chemistry between them is palpable, and their love story is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.

Jókai's writing is poetic and descriptive, drawing the reader in from the very first page. The pacing of the novel is well-done, with just the right amount of tension and suspense to keep the reader engaged. The themes of love, sacrifice, and destiny are explored in a thought-provoking way, leaving the reader with much to ponder after finishing the book.

Overall, Eyes Like the Sea is a timeless classic that will appeal to fans of romance, historical fiction, and literary fiction alike. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a captivating and emotional read.

Book Description:
He was a painter, a poet, a novelist. He lived during the Hungarian revolution and his love of freedom meant his life was often in peril. She was his first love, this girl with the eyes like the sea. She was at heart noble, good and loving. What an excellent lady might have been made out of this woman, if she had only met with a husband who, in the most ordinary acceptance of the word, had been a good fellow, as is really the case with about nine men out of every ten. But she always managed to draw the unlucky tenth out of the urn of destiny. And so she spurned his true love in favor of a high-flying dandy. He went on to pursue a life of politics and she to follow her capricious heart. But yet, throughout her life, she kept returning to him and to the end, of all men, she loved him perhaps best of all. (Eyes Like the Sea won the Hungarian Academy of Sciences prize for literature in 1890.)
