    Having inspired a classic film and Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny is Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life—and mutiny—on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater. It was immediately embraced upon its original publication as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of the Second World War. In the intervening half century, this gripping story has become a perennial favorite, selling millions throughout the world, and claiming the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

    He thought he had everything until tragedy struck... Adam Ross, orphaned at nine, cherished a dream - that one day he would have land of his own. The opal fields of Coober Pedy offered his first glimpse of riches - and Nellie, a dusky beauty, provided his first taste of love... From the western plains of New South Wales to the balmy waters of Sydney Harbour, from the grinding heat of a West Australian cattle station to the eerie desert shores of Lake Eyre, Adam was driven by his ambition.

    Have you ever read or listened to a book you couldn't put down? This was one of those experiences for me. This is the first time I have heard a story by Evan Green. I will be looking for others. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

    There were zero reviews when I picked this book. I couldn't download a sample to listen. The cover was enticing. It was maybe a little bit slow in the very beginning but wow! After I got started, I couldn't quit listening. I'm going to look for the next book in the series.

    I couldn't get much else done, if it involved anything that required me to stop listening.
