I didn't really think the jumping around was necessary-- I understand the plot and reasoning behind the continuous stories for several angles-- however-- I would have preferred like TV shows and sitcoms that have -- they have physical fade in/ fade out between the rotating segments. I was left with the impression we were constantly jumping from timeline to timeline-- never knowing if we were picking up from where we left off-- or starting yet another 'viewpoint' and or 'time stamped' story...
Positives: loved the experience and real life research and contributions to the story about the main characters-- while sad, the story and or ghost writer brought you in closer to the characters and sold them to you lock, stock and barrel...
Great realistic stories about a sailors dream of making it to the horizon-- but falling short in preparations and or redundancies- making both the sailors and vessels subject to wrath and unforgiving nature of the sea-- she is not a respecter of persons... Enjoyed the book and would enjoy listening to another from John K.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No. It is three completely separate stories but the author tells a little of each at a time and then continues telling another story. Kept getting lost and by the time the author went back to story number one i was lost and could barely remember what was going on
Has At the Mercy of the Sea turned you off from other books in this genre?
Could you see At the Mercy of the Sea being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
It would have been a great book if the author told one story at a time.
