A voyage but going nowhere,
This review is from: Archipelago (Paperback)
To be honest got this as a holiday read at the airport - and hadn't realised it was a novel not a travelogue. But no problem, would read in that mode.
For me it started a bit slow. Would it develop into a voyage of human development, would it develop into a love story, would it be a real sailor's book. Well, for me at least, none of these - it bumbles along with lots of sundry details on the locality, but little pace or depth. And the ending kind of fizzles out.
