Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars 'There was a ship...', 4 Sept. 2013
This review is from: The Dead Men Stood Together (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
"The Dead Men Stood Together" begins with a young boy and an old man. They have been wandering for centuries propelled by the young boy's hatred and the old man's compulsion to tell his story, a story familiar from 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', but which now has a new narrator...

"The Dead Men Stood Together" is infused with the salt of the sea, the superstitions of sailors, and some very nasty creatures. The horror is suitably chilling and I loved the characterization of the ancient mariner. Reading Priestley's book had me returning to Coleridge's poem and allowed me to appreciate just what Priestley had done with it. Nevertheless, this is also an enjoyable novel in its own right.
