really liked it

Fantastic little adventure story. The writing is quite vibrant and feels fresh; the only unfortunate thing is that the author assumes a familiarity with some navigational devices and the geography of the area, which I think is unfamiliar to the modern reader. You can't fault him for that - after all, the book is a hundred years old, but it does mean that there are some confusing passages.

Still, highly worth reading as a late-Victorian tale of real-life adventure, by someone who was actually there.
