    1. Interesting book. I'm glad I read it, but toward the end I found myself reading it to be done with it. Perhaps my expectations were wrong, but it is really two stories in one. One about Porter, the crazed ship captain, and one about Poinset. They are told in parallel and I kept waiting for them to intersect dramatically. While they do intersect, it just didn't do it for me.
