This book was a fast read, but ultimately not that enjoyable. The characters were shallow and not well-drawn, the situations they get involved in strongly contrived and not very involving. The concept is sort of like a "Grand Hotel" on the high seas, but the author falls short of his goal.

Good Reads doesn't have a "didn't finish" choice like Visual Bookshelf did. Anyway, I didn't finish. Life is too short to read bad books.
