"Alexander's many fans will find the final, posthumous Sir John Fielding mystery a bittersweet experience. It marks a triumphant return to the series' strengths....enabling one of the worthier recent historical series to go out on a well-deserved high note." (Publishers Weekly)
I enjoyed the scholarship of this book. Michael York has a wonderful voice. If you are interested in the historical drama of Bligh, Chrisitan and the mutineers this a must.
Was hoping for more information about Bligh et al's time in the launch, how they survive and navigated, etc. I found this book focused too much on the trials and what happened after, which I found difficult to keep straight with so many sailors mentioned.
The details I wasn't aware of before and Michael York's narration.
The information on Christian at the end.
No I haven't but Mr. York's ability to change into different characters brought a lot of character to the characters.
Paradise to Mutiny
This is an adventure story rich in characters and for some reason has always had a strong hold on my imagination. It seems with the other books I've read on the HMS Bounty, this "The Bounty" provides all the detail I was missing. It's one of the few books I will read/ listen to again, very enjoyable.
