Ondaatje definitely has a way with words. His writing is engaging and at times lyrical. I was disappointed in this story however, finding it to be rather disjointed. At times I had difficulty following the storyline, unsure of the chronological order of certain events. I also was unsure of the reason some events were included in the story, as they appeared unelated to the story of Michael and his travels. I felt that the story was incomplete in terms of the relationships Michael formed with his fellow passengers.
