Researched facts, avoided unsubstiated generalizations. From opening premse, manufactured a thesis and forced data into it. Can't comment on the conclusion as I was so fed up with the con job in the first several chapters I quit.
Went to a movie instead of writing this book...or better yet, offer me my money back.
Can I have my money back? I'd get more by buying a lottery ticket.
Marvelous job of intertwining a murder mystery week-end with a real murder and the Agatha like sleuth solving.
Wonderful set of tall tales.
Right accent, tone and timing.
Very troublesome reaction. While walking and listening I would burst out in guffaws..earning strange stares from those nearby.
Detailed narrative of a little known but critical naval battle of WWII.
Clearly written with descriptions of the men involved so that you knew and cared for what would and did happen to them. At the same time detailing the combat so forcefully, the sight and sound of combat was almost real.
He gave character and voice to the sailors.
The misery and terror of the survivors in the sea.
One of the best narrative histories of combat and the fighting men I have read
Great disappointment. Should have skipped this one.
To little of the marvelous associated characters with their indiocyncraces. Forced story. Could have ended with a long shot, artifically prolonged to create a lot of fantasy.
I have enjoyed the other books by this author, but he has established a predictable pattern of investigate, hunt and suffer terrible weather and outdoor conditions aided by unearthly forces. I like his characters but having read (heard) several of his stories, plan to lay of his books for a while.
