rollicking good read,
This review is from: This Thing Of Darkness (Paperback)
This book just made me want to find out more about the fascinating character Robert Fitzroy who I had never heard of prior to reading this. You don't need to have an interest in ships/sailing or 19th Century history to be carried along by this riveting and beautifully written story. It has the rare ability to entertain and educate at the same time.
