The Riddle is a classic among sailboat enthusiasts. The espionage is a little naive, but then, the genre has evolved. If you are not a sailing enthusiast, the parts concerning navigation could be tedious. It has been among my favorites for years, and I am glad to see it in e-book format. Far better than the movie.

Okay, so I've done a crap ton amount of moving in the past year and a half. If that's not time consuming enough for you, there was also packing and unpacking boxes of my house contents 7 times (yes I have lived in 7 different places since April 17, 2012. 8 if you count in a hotel for a month). I'm not going to go into detail why, because when I start rambling I can't stop. And now into the good part. BOTH KATE AND THE CLANS AND SILENT'S STORY WILL BE RE-WRITTEN AT NEW LOACATIONS. Why? Because I want to start fresh, and because in the time I've been gone I've kept writing and gotten better, and finally, because the current versions suck. How did I ever think that was good enough to show you awesome-sauce people? *Face-palm* so in the place of the old stories will be spam messages, probably somehing like "Peace was here" or whatever. I'll let you all know when the re-done versions are out and where they are in the first result. Bye! ~Peace

The title of the Riddle of the Sands is exotic but beyond that - this is an unbelievably boring tale of two friends who come together at some godforsaken islands to reveal a British traitor. That¿s the gist of the novel. But what follows is a convoluted storyline full of slang, garbled nautical lingo rendered in half completed sentences that have no head or tail. Understanding such a text will require a supercomputer not to speak of a mere mortal. The writer seems to have written this book in some opium-induced hallucinatory trance. This is a heck of a one-way trip to self-congratulatory egotism, if I ever saw
