Publisher's Summary

Having inspired a classic film and Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny is Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life—and mutiny—on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater. It was immediately embraced upon its original publication as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of the Second World War. In the intervening half century, this gripping story has become a perennial favorite, selling millions throughout the world, and claiming the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

    "Slow moving at times, but overall a good story"

    It took me a while to really get into this novel, but by the end, I had an appreciation for Wouk's ability to make me look at not only the events of the story in a different light, but WWII as well.

    "Best Audible Book I've "read""
    What made the experience of listening to The Caine Mutiny the most enjoyable?

    The book was outstanding and the performance was the best I've experienced.


    What does Kevin Pariseau bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It sounded as if several actors were involved in the performance. The dialogue was very easy to follow as the voicing was different for each character.

    "Another good WWII story"

    I have a long commute so I like longer books and Wouk makes the story last without going boring. Characters are believable if not somewhat crazy at times.

    avid listener, during exercise and travel. Been doing for 30 plus years and probably will never stop. I am trying to read more recently, it requires more downtime.

    I enjoyed all of works of Wouk, but this one was especially entertaining as I was also in the U.S. Navy. Woke is a wonderful story teller!

    I value intelligent stories with characters I can relate to. I can appreciate good prose, but a captivating plot is way more important.

    Story
    "Very good, but dated and long-winded"

    The good:

    This is a captivating tale that gripped me immediately. I lost sleep the first night I started listening to it because I simply could not pull my self away.

    The bad:

    I'm not afraid of a long book, but this book spends a lot of time on mundane things, while racing through moments of high drama and intrigue. I could have used more courtroom drama, and a lot less "romance", if that's what we're calling it.

    The dated:

    My main gripe with the story is the protagonist's romantic relationship. Maybe at the time this courtship was an appealing story, but through modern eyes, all I see is a stuck-up elitist abusing a girl with no spine or self-respect.

    "Boring"

    Really enjoyed the Winds of War but this book was just dull and moved slowly. Hoping more info would encourage me to finish it, I read about it on the Internet. The ships crew had a disagreement about how one specific mission was carried out not an actual muntiny, a court marshal, retraction of support by some players and eventually the findings were overturned. Now that's a messy story with no resolution, just a muddle which is where it was when I gave up.
