Forester's gripping story of a tale of triumph and tragedy on the high seas is a compelling read. The spare story line moves quickly while the world and history stand in the balance, with just enough personal details to provide micro- as well as macro-cosmic dimension to the work.
Although I found "The Ship" to be an even more compelling story, both are difficult to put down once started.
