5.0 out of 5 stars I could not put it down, 17 May 2000
I really loved this. The historical background and the "English Passengers" fitted well together.
"Getting into the heads" of these passengers and seeing how they viewed their situation from different perspectives I found really interesting. Particularly because their perspectives were linked so well to the historical period in which they lived. I also enjoyed Captain Illiam Quillian Kewley's sense of humour.
In some respects it was almost like a Boys Own adventure story except that it was based on historical fact. I found it exciting, sad and funny and it certainly opened my eyes to a period of history of which I was unaware. It has left me very keen to visit Tasmania!
The only disappointing thing is that I've read it and I wish I still had it to read!
