Dull plotting.

Duller psychology.

Shallow characters.

Improbable coincidences galore.

Pretty racist.

And yet almost entirely saved by some great descriptive work in painting the submerged world.

Worth reading, barely.

Emma Summed it up exactly for me!

Larissa Also summed up 100% for me. I had to give it 3 stars for the visual imagery, but the rest left me quite disappointed and I had so been looking forward to reading this too.

Poliana Agreed!
