    Misleading reveiws

    I made the mistake assuming that this was a war Novel full of action. I read some customer reviews and they were good. I personally just could not get into this book. Its not that it was to complex I just was waiting and waiting for some gaint event to take place and it never came for me. On good points this book has amazing character detail, if you are just looking for a good story, i would reccomend this book. If you are looking for a war novel full of action this is not the book for you. I guess the reason i kept reading the book is because i kept searching for the climax which was just a disappointment.

    Wow, the best book I ever read

    The first few chapters were very boring. But once you got to page 250 or something like that (near the climax), it got really exciting. I liked how Mr. Wouk described the character of the neurotic Captain Queeg. I also thought the conclusion was written very beautifully. Hats off to Mr. Wouk.

    Fantastic

    The Caine Mutiny was a great book, even if you don't like war books. The best part of the book to me was the part where the mom has to say goodbye to her son. I am not sure why but that really got to me because I have to do that allot with my dad, because he is in the military. So I guess that part of book was my favorite because I have to do that also, so I feel for the mom. One thing I did not like is that the title The Caine Mutiny is a bit misleading. Because if that is the title, then the reader wants to think the whole book is about that mutiny, when it is only the climax of the novel. That is pretty much the only thing I did not like.

    The Cain Mutiny

    The Cain Mutiny by Herman Wouk is a story about men living on a small obsolete destroyer converted to a minesweeper during World War II. It was on the N.Y. times best seller list for two and a half years, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1952. It was made into a play and a popular movie. While telling day to day life on shipboard the writer manages to keep the story from being boring and keeps it interesting and even exciting. The characters are unforgettable, especially captain Queeg. I recommend it highly. It is one of the best books I have ever read.

    Good Story During WWII

    This is a very interesting story that took place during WWII. This book will give the reader knowledge of how life was during the 1940's and how life was in the navy during WWII. This book will show you differences between they way we live today and the way that people lived then. If you want an understanding of how it would be on a ship in the navy then read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone because the author has many other good reads and he is very informative of the time period.

    An excellent book with life lessons

    In addition to being very well-written, Wouk's book addresses lessons one must learn in life, including leadership, loyalty, responsibility, and many, many other ideas. This should be required reading for any leadership courses. I simply could not put this book down.

    This book shouldn't be this hard to find

    It goes to show you how a movie and a book can tell the same story completely different. On the screen, Bogie as Captain Queeg was the main character. Here, our central character is Willie Keith, an immature rich Ivy Leaguer who joins the Navy during World War II to avoid getting drafted into the Army. Keith's misadventures (the conflict with Captain Queeg being only the biggest one) are his postgrad coursework towards the most important major he is ever to study for--becoming a man and a Naval officer. This book is not only a foretaste of what a great war story teller Wouk was later to become--it's a first-rate coming of age story made only more interesting by its late-blooming aspect. Think of it as Twain by way of Edward L. Beach.

    Wouk's Masterpiece!!!

    Willie Keith, Stephen Maryk, and Thomas Keefer are three of the best and very detailed fictional characters to emerge from 1950's literature. A gripping read!!

    It Was Very Boring If You Do Not Enjoy Navy or War Books

    I felt the book was very uninteresting and I would have stopped reading if it wasn't an assignment. Hard to get into/understand. Took a good five weeks to read.
