"I think the reason that the series is good is that it ISN'T really a "seafaring tale", but a tale of characters that happens to also involve seafaring, if that makes sense."


Yes! That's a great way of putting it. I'm currently 3/4 through "Far Side of the World". I've been trying not to race through these books (I usually read in bed each night, after my 18 month old daughter has gone to bed...a sometimes arduous, though rewarding, experience...kind of like parenthood itself, but that's a whole other story...), but I get so caught up in it sometimes that I can't help myself. Well, hope you pick it up again.

Fool on,
Steve G.
