William Brinkley makes Shakespeare seem like light reading. This is NOT even close to the TNT show, the book only being a loose basis for said show. There are no similarities other than the name of the ship. This book will exhaust you as there are whole chapters between any sort of event. Everything is from the captain's viewpoint and he spends page after page waxing philosophical between sentences, I kid you not. Mysteries are offered but never or poorly answered and the writer wanders through his story seemingly at random. Spoiler alert! The ending is infuriating. Keep a dictionary handy and Google open to understand this writer unless you got straight A's and a Masters in English Lit! :) Having said all that, the idea behind the book is intriguing and this book would have been fantastic with quality editing! A sequel would also be interesting, but only with quality editing.
