    " Reading this book made me realize one thing... I don't like British Literature. So called classic British Lit at least. This book was recommended to me by a friend about four years ago as it was his favorite. That got me excited, my friend has good taste and the blurb said that KSM inspired Indiana Jones- awesome! Maybe I set my hopes too high but this was easily one of the most boring books I have encountered. Slow paced with random events thrown amuck to give the facade of excitement. Every encounter in the novel happened independently and did nothing to build the greater narrative. I hate the concept of deus ex machina and for intents and purposes that is how the story ended. With coincidence and happenstance to justify everything that occurred. I also don't like that everyone SPOILER lives happily ever after save for one minor and trivial character. Yes, I get it Good loves her but the AQ even says that sailors fall in love at the drop of a hat so it lessened her impact immediately. It took me over two months to finish this book because I couldn't bring myself to read it unless I was using th toilet. It's only 200 pages! I can read that in a workday but I couldn't sit through that much in one sitting of KSM. I feel bad for the publisher (admittedly from 1885) who called this the most exciting book ever written. You poor, poor soul. "

    " didn't expect the plot of this one (hadn't seen the film) not bad overall though. "

    " Okay, I would have far fewer things to read if my children didn't recommend books. Recommended by my son during his first year in college. I found this book cativating, an adventure not easily forgotten. A quote from the book that sums up its tale, "But everything has an end, if only you live long enough to see it." "

    " It was pretty good. It moves quickly, but I had a couple issues with the style of writing. "
