I thoroughly enjoyed this kindle edition, especially as I got it for free! Thanks to Carl for a thrilling, interesting and educating story. At first I couldn't figure out if it was fact or fiction... So well detailed, and with images of places I've only imagined, I wish I too could travel so far afar. The only real problem I've got with the version I read, is the constant spelling mistakes of obvious words, and the nautical terms with no explanation. Being on the kindle meant I would have to log into google to search, and then return to the story, which I didn't bother doing. I made up what I didn't understand, using context to make sense of it. Hopefully the story ends well?
