Strauss's introduction of the hidden culture in Seaweed is marvelously mysterious and definitely interesting on many levels. The main story background is brilliantly developed and pops to life on the pages, sparkling like the shining waters of the rich and vast deep blue sea. The character's are fun to get to know on a more personal level, as reader's delve into each of their stories and bring them to life across the pages. Some are deliciously likable and easy to connect with, while other's may have a tendency to fall a bit flat at times. The world of the Mer-People that Strauss created, is exciting, fun, and adventurous.
Overall, Seaweed is filled with beautiful mystical mer-lore, myth, legend, and romance that is sure to tantalize anyone who enjoys fantasy novels of this caliber. While it might not have been the most original or the best representation of fantasy revolving around mermaids in my honest opinion, it's still an okay book for when reader's want a fast-paced, light, fun read.
