There's a reason I prefer fiction for entertainment rather than fact. This book reminded me of it. It's based on the last voyage of Captain Cook and while there is a fair amount of made up events I didn't find it an enjoyable read. It had to follow so closely the known events of that last voyage it's pace became very slow. I'm sure it's an accurate representation of the trials and tribulations of the time though.
Just not a story for me, Rootie Rating 1 out of 5
