Was I reading the same book as everyone else?
on 7 November 2015
I thought the subject matter was brilliant and interesting. Hearing about Bill and the crew and their experience was very interesting and informative.
However, the writing style really grated on me, it was fawning, far too deferential and at times obsequious in places. The same hackneyed phrases cropped up all the time as well. Also, the layout was completely skewed for me reading through the Kindle App on the iPad. Pictures were on the wrong pages, captions didn't match and I found it very difficult to read, particularly the official operation reports.
It was a shame because the subject matter was great, but the author hasn't done it justice. They haven't ruined it or anything like that, but I just think that it could've been better.
