did not like it
bookshelves: never-should-have-bought-books

I did read the whole book...waiting for something to happen...Hoping for something to happen. The geographical setting and events seemed very promising for a great tale(Somalia, pirates, ship hijackings/captures, World navies counteractions, etc. Page by page i was hoping to get the point of the whole story. Very disappointed. All the pieces were there, but never congealed.

At the very end, it was sort of like Leonard said to himself, "Well, I'm tired of this and even I don't have a clue where it is going, where I thought I was heading, so..I'll just stop typing and send this off to the Publisher, and go to bed."

Speaking of bed....

BIGGER SPOILER!

Janelle Sounds like a rough read Wiley!


Wiley I think I finished this about a month ago. Not a very good book.
