Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The hero of Lover's comedic 1842 novel is "handy" Andy Rooney, a likable enough guy who has an unfortunate knack for doing everything wrong. Besides some chuckles, the story provides a glimpse of 19th-century Ireland. Marryat's 1839 Phantom Ship was a favorite of everyone from Herman Melville to Joseph Conrad and Virginia Woolf. This adventure story has its share of religious overtones. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
