Audible Editor Reviews

The disappearance of the crew of the Mary Celeste, in the Atlantic Ocean, in 1872, has been one of the more puzzling maritime mysteries of the past few centuries. Actor David Whiteley's voice is precise and dramatic here as he outlines the strange story, its popularity via Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictionalized version, and the many explanations that have been offered for the vanishing of the crew. Overall, an enjoyable and even-handed introduction to the mingling of fact and fiction that surrounds this odd tale.

    A good introduction to a well known mystery of the sea. Anyone wishing to delve deeper may find that most of the mystery stems from the lack of Communications in those days. . .but then again. . .?
