1.0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment 2 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I am an avid reader of this era of naval stories, but as for this one, I can only agree with the other review. The number of exclamation points in the early chapters is ridiculous. I found it so irritating that I also could not finish the book. Probably had the makings of a decent story but the writing quality prevented me from finding out. I do hope that any follow-up novels by this author gets the punctuation sorted out to make it more readable.

3.0 out of 5 stars On the King's Sea Service 8 Feb 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
I chose that rating because I didn't enjoy it as much as the like of P. O'Brian, A. Kent or J. Stockwin

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable 5 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm sorry but I gave up after one chapter. I just can't cope with writing where every other sentence ends with an exclamation point.
Unnecessary and extremely irritating. An author who cannot punctuate has no place in my library.
