    Very Entertaining!

    This book had me laughing outloud. Everytime you think it cannot get any better, Marryat unveils an entirely new and hilarious adventure couched in a narrative full of wit and panache. Although the outcome is easily anticipated, the characters and misadventures along the way left me lauging and very satisfied. I wish more people wrote like this today!
