it was ok

Lifeboat stories usually have predictable occurrences. This story isn't all that unusual except for the time and the circumstances. The author writes well, but the drama is very low keyed and quite civil. Perhaps 1914 was a better year for civility even in lifeboats. I can't imagine obedience and civility being predominant qualities in a 2012 lifeboat crisis. In any event, the book moves along in a slow, undulating pace until the end. Nothing much here except the sound of the sea.
