liked it

A book called Black Water, about a mercenary, that has zero to do with the notorious private military company Blackwater...? Kinda like one called Mick Donalds about a clown named Ronald, that goes hundreds and hundreds of pages without a single Big Mac.

Praise goes out for the well written illustration of Indonesian history, plus an in-depth character exploration. Respectable, I suppose, even if the novel was nothing like the blurb. Maybe I am too young to get exciting about sex scenes with a grumpy loner pushing sixty.

Doughty's Black Water may run deep but flows a slow and joyless course.
