Fantasy or History lovers
Read in January, 2001
I loved this book, and the two that followed in the trilogy.
Quick synopsis - the island of Nantucket (and a wooden Coast Guard ship) are mysteriously whisked back in time several thousand years.
The only reason I didn't give this one five stars is that Stirling gets a bit carried away with some of the more ... unsavory sexual behavior of some of his characters. This seems to be a consistent trend of his in most of his books. He can't seem to write plain old vanilla sex - his sex scenes are either of lesbian and/or EXTREMELY brutal acts of sadism.
