Excellent reading

This is an excellent reading of the book, and really brings it to life. The reader's voice is really well suited to the story, and brings out the pace of the book.

Slow beginning, but worth the wait

It takes awhile for this story to get going, but it becomes gripping later. Anton Lesser's reading is, as always, magnificent. This is a classic thriller - no gory stuff, and more of a mental cat-and-mouse game than an action adventure. There is a lot of sailing terminology, but it is not essential to understand the jargon (I didn't understand most of it) to enjoy the book.

Slow and Earnest

Admittedly, I am an hour and a half from reaching the end of this book. And I wouldn't make it to the end except that the pace has finally picked up. You'll listen for a long time to much ado about little with this one. Even the reader, Anton Lesser, can't really bring it alive.
