The Moonraker Mutiny | [Antony Trew]

The Moonraker Mutiny

A tired old freighter, the Moonraker, is homeward bound from Freemantle to Mauritius. Haunted by his past, Captain Stone seeks solace in a gin bottle, and Italian mate Carlo Frascatti grumbles at the motley crew. Then the calm, humdrum voyage is shattered when the radio operator picks up a warning of a suspected cyclone ahead. Members of the panic-stricken crew turn on their captain and abandon ship, and so begins a desperate struggle to keep the battered hulk afloat.

    "Sea tale"

    This book held my interest and I could not stop listening. I admit to liking tales of the sea and this book is very nautical. The writer takes pains to put his prose into nautical context. A good story with enough human greed, sloth, and error to make it a very good listen. Finally one worth a credit.

    "predictable and unsatisfying"

    no real twists or turns in the story, easy to figure out what was coming up in the book. the end was truly disappointing as it leraves many questions unanswered.

    Easy way to spend some drive time, but I wouldn't suggest it.

    "Good story, great narrator!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I listened to this book twice, 6 months apart with equal interest. The storyline and narrator are both complimentary and I consider this good entertainment. It was quite captivating. I would definitely recommend this book to others.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Moonraker Mutiny?

    The description of the ferocity of the storm encountered stands out in my mind.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Wickham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoy Peter Wickham's narration and look forward to listening to his other books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I could have listened to this book in one sitting.

    "Didn't like"

    I like nautical fiction, but not modern nautical adventures. To be honest, I probably should've read the description and seen this was a modern sea tale. I'm more into the tales set in the distant past. I couldn't really get into this one.
