A really good sea yarn in typical Obrian detail. The characters are very well fleshed out. The geography is a little confusing, however, and I would recommend having a world atlas close at hand. T thoroughly enjoyable read, er listen.
Don't know, I am legally blind
The central character, Loon, because the author paints him as completely credible and yet heroic as he learns to survive and ultimately thrive.
A gift which good readers have, of maintaining the individual, voices, mannerisms and attitudes of the various characters in the novel. He brings each one to life.
When the protagonist finishes his initiation into manhood by surviving in the wilderness with nothing (not even clothing), on his own for 20 days and the reader discovers he is only a young teenager.
This book was very hard to put down or should I say pause, as I listened on my Ipod. I was sorry when it was finished.
A pretty good idea for a story but the writing is absolutely amateur. Major continuity errors and the author did not do enough research on his subject so that the story, although science fiction, lacked cfedulity. This book stinks.
