Beautiful detailed descriptions of matters (diving, submarine warfare) that didn't interest
2 September 2018
I found the writing to be very beautiful at times but the story did not interest me. The sequences were disjointed and it was difficult to follow the complex story. I was not interested in the relationship of the disabled sister, the details of deep sea diving & ship repair, the details of life on a submarine in World war II, gangsters in New York. The ending was a little too saccharine and unbelievable.
