HOMOPHOBIA AND THE DARK SIDE OF THE NAVY: 'THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR' BY KURT BRINDLEY

Thanks you, Kurt Brindley, for the possibility of reading The Sea Trials of an Unfortunate Sailor.
I would say the only reason I give this - 4 stars - it is because of the style the book was written. I wish you would write more military books but with a lot more action. I am sure that you can bring to us, readers, lots of exciting full of tension moments since you practically live in the navy's core.

This is one of the best books that I've read in a long time. The ending, though appropriate and in line with with the narrative, is very unexpected. That's how brilliant this masterful writer of suspense,and wordsmith is; it should be made into a film. I hope you read this Mr Brindley because this is a serious offer. Please consider collaborating on a screenplay with me.

Thanks to Good reads and Kurt Brindley for my copy of The Sea Trials of an Unfortunate Sailor.

A very powerful and moving story that will make you think about how people are treated for being different.
