    Story
    "Less than the sum of its parts"
    Would you try another book from William Hope Hodgson and/or Mark Turetsky?

    Yes. I read this book because I've enjoyed William Hope Hodgson's other work. I'm beginning to think that he's best suited for short stories and struggles with long-form fiction.


    Has The Boats of the Glen Carrig turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Of course not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Just not a lot of life to it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration and impatience. There was so much potential, but the events seemed to only happen in isolation. The book had lots of interesting things happening in it, but these seemed to leave no progressive impact.
