We loved the story. Compelling, human and well developed. The development of not only the Husky Crew team but the German war machine gave a sense of history that added another dimension to the book. We are rowers and Seattle residents. That combo made the book a top favorite for us. Even if you aren't into rowing or from Seattle, it is a gripping book that never seems to lag.
The only issue is that the narrator has never been to Seattle. He needed to ask a local how to pronounce a half dozen local words. As an example, Alki beach is pronounced Alk-Eye...not Al-Key.
