Initial thought upon finishing the book
This book never cease to be amazing. I really loved this story and all the gorgeous characters in it. It was so thrilling to be back in this world to see how Jack Sligo face everything that is thrown at him in life. I never want this book to end. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect in this. I found large parts of Shanghaied to be interesting and flushed with adventures.
What about the audiobook?
I listened to this, as always, via audiobook and I truly think this is the way to go. I often become disenchanted with books that are long because they take me so long to read – but audiobooks never phase me, even if they are nearly 100hours long. You just plod along very easily and enjoy the amazing performance of Andrew Tell who narrates this.
I don’t need to warble on any longer on this book. It’s great, guys. The story is different but it’s worth it and totally different piece of adventure. The ending to the book brings a WONDERFUL plot twist that I couldn’t be happier. I love these characters, I would read a book like this for lifetime Collin’s writing is simply spell-binding. Big thumbs up from me.
One reason to listen:
Andrew Tell's incredible narration.
Hypnotic, rattling.... Time collapses as, minute by minute, David Paul Collins rivetingly and movingly chronicles what ensued, much of which is near agony to read.... A brilliantly told story that won't go begging when the year's literary honors are doled out
The author narrates a heart-warming tale with full of adventure. I felt connected to the characters and the story. Not only were the characters on the point, but the author's writing skills also keep you engrossed with actions and adventure.
The book is a true account of author's experience and that makes it more interesting to listen. Yes, i read it as an audio book and it was a great experience . It has given me an additional insight and appreciation of the work from the start.
Completely captivated by the story, the author made me feel i was there with Jack feeling his pain and joy.
The writing style is detailed but the author sets the hook fast. His innate sense of the story and the dialogue paint a vivid picture of a sailor's life.
