    Loved it!

    I thought this was a wonderful book! It's beautifully written, with wonderful characters and levity. I love books that can make me laugh out loud, and this one succeeded. I think the details make the story richer - but this type of writing is rare nowadays so I can understand people getting frustrated with it. It stayed with me after I had finished reading it :) Very enjoyable.

    Not Quite the Cup of Gold

    I enjoyed the book but it was missing a critical storyline. The plot was too muddied with dry details. Plenty of characters and great jokes but lacking unity. During my reading I could easily put the book down and when I started again I had a tough time putting the plot together. I may read it a second time and see if I can make more sense of it because it is well written. I just feel there is no central conflict or specific theme. May be that is art of this story.

    Not enough adventure!

    This book has good intentions but when all is said and done it is far too much conversation between sailors and not enough adventure. I know the author knew his stuff but you do not get to know it because of all the useless detail.
