5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly memorable, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far Tortuga (Panther) (Paperback)
This is a book which will linger and linger in the mind provided you can stick with the opening chapters - the time it takes to get used to the patois in which the book is written. But five stars if you can stay the course.

Matthiessen is simply amazing. There's an effortless quality to his writing, and Far Tortuga, in my view, is an absolute classic. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This might be perfect., 1 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Far Tortuga (Panther) (Paperback)
From the first pages this book creates not only a perfect tone but one which is entirely original and its own. Matthiessen uses every resource (you'll be surprised when you flick through the pages) to tremendous effect in this multi-layered and heartbreaking story of losing and finding. The characters are developed with genuine truth and empathy and it's a mark of the writer that you'll never find yourself wondering if they're believable. Everything is intergrated here, every word is the right one and in the right place. You will not regret reading this book, I doubt very much if you'll only read it once.
