    Enjoyable, exciting read. Sad ending

    The Voyage starts with a hard to accept premise, namely that a father would send his three teenage sons on a small sailboat and tell them to get lost for three months. The reason behind this is revealed in the last chapter but that reason does not take away from the exciting nature of the nautical adventure that the three boys and their friend have and all the elements of nature that they encounter. The story takes place in 1901 but has a present day narrator and that technique is somewhat annoying and distracting as is the last chapter when the mysteries are revealed. The book is a wonderful experience but could have been better had it been told as a straightforward story without the narrator who really provides much detail at the end that serves no real purpose. The ending also has areas of tragedy (I wont be specific here so as not to spoil the plot) that were not necessary. On the whole though, the characters are quite well crafted and you care about what happens to them. You feel their pain and their fears and this really is what makes a novel great.

    Compelling tale of sea voyage

    A compelling tale of a sea voyage undertaken by three teenage brothers. As interesting from the maritime vantage point as from the perspective of the three brothers and familial ties.
