    " Did someone read Oondatje before they decided to write a novel? "

    " A bit odd, a bit sad but there was something catching. "

    " Tedious story involving miserable and unlikeable characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lowry | 2/2/2013

    " An engaging story, I liked the aspects of history and expectation. The writing style of no quotation markes drove me up a wall, though, and the fact that the supposedly incoherent murmerings of an old man are written in beautifully poignant prose. "

    " I was hoping this was going to be about 19th century ships and fun. Instead it's an archeologist trying to find a 15th century ship. Sometimes the first chapter can be misleading. An easy 1-day beach read: typical floaty prose, love interest, etc. Standard average novel "

    " I had a hard the first time I went to read this book. I don't think I was in the right frame of mind, but then I went and picked it up again 6 months to a year later and loved it. I always tell my kids to always try a book again, because sometimes we are are just not in the mood. "
