Why the title?

The reason why the salt to the sea because they are all connected to this one ship called Wilhelm Gustloff.

The disaster happens. The sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff is the deadliest maritime disaster in history of the world carrying thousands of refugees.  The entire novel leads up to something really dark.

My view

I do not want to write more about the book otherwise it will be spoiler for you all. This is definitely a book you want to read and experience for yourself and if I were to ruin that I would be mad at myself.

An Overcrowded Ship is the Final Hope

It’s an immersive wonderful, exciting read.
