3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but disappointing ending, October 21, 2007
By 
This review is from: Back Bay (Mass Market Paperback)
I am a Historian so I thought that this book would be an interesting read. All in all this was a good book. I liked the way Mr. Martin would weave the past with what is going on in the future. It was an intriguing story and for the most part I really enjoyed the book. The problem was the ending. Without giving too much detail, the ending of this book was disappointing. After all the build up, it seemed as though Mr. Martin did not know what to do with the ending. I was left with this sense of, "I read this whole book for that?" feeling. I am willing to give this author another shot. He is a good writer and he does a good job of weaving history throughout his books. I just hope my second read does not end the way the first one did.

I just finished "Back Bay' and must say, I feel the same way as you do, loved the book but very disappointed with the ending. It could leave one drawing all kinds of conclusions on their own. Perhaps, one of the people on the boat DID survive, marked the spot and went back on their own for the set. And one wonders why, after all that difficulty, Peter Fallon didn't get a diver and recover the tea set. The ending was so abrupt it made me feel as if there were pages missing from my book.
