    In case you ve ever wanted to know what it feels like without actually doing it, here is a book that moves with the slow satisfaction of a sailboat journey around the world The flow of language will at times rock you asleep and other times you will be buffeted about by a crash of words mightily massed and moving perpetually forward.But mostly The Far Sid

    Martin was a thoroughly amiable man, a man of wide reading, but when he came to write he mounted upon a pair of stilts, unusually lofty stilts, and staggered along at a most ungracious pace, with an occasional awkward lurch into colloquialism, giving a strikingly false impression of himself Patrick O Brian, The Far Side of the World The Far Side o

    This is the book that provides the largest chunk of plot for the movie, Master and Commander The Far Side of the World Jack Aubrey and the crew of the Surprise pursue their enemy around stormy Cape Horn, and naturalist Stephen Maturin is furious at being denied the opportunity to spend time on the amazing Galapagos Islands During the journey there is drama on board concernin

    This is a book that calls for a breakdown in the rating There are aspects of it that probably deserve a three at best The plot itself isn t actually all that compelling the story simply plods along from one adventure or crisis to the next, framed by the overarching back cover synopsis plot which occupies remarkably little of the book The characters are memorable, but I can t think of a single
