Three Quarters Great and Then a Fumble
on 13 January 1997
I know I should proceed at great caution in reviewing a classic or a near classic. And, I suppose, I shouldn't say anything bad about this book and much less use a crude football analogy to describe it. But... I do feel it is my duty to warn anyone else out there looking for a sure fire no risk classic like I was.That in my opinion. This book isn't it. The Author, not matter how great I'm sure he is, seems to have deserted the wonderful characters he creates to make a few points and create some Danille Steel twists that are pretty hard to believe. After all the Captain was absolutely crazy.Go buy the Red Badge of Courage.
