I think the best part in this book is when he first casts out and it's all fine until he gets in trouble with the weather and eventually gets back on track and comes through with the proble. The worst part of the book would have to be the beginning because it doesn't really describe the characters as well they should.
I liked when the main character first sailed out and said he will always finish his goals and strive toward them and nothing will stop him. Every storm went by he delt with it swiftly like it was no competition.
He is whiny, complaining, ungrateful, and arrogant as only a sixteen year old boy can be. I see little evidence that this changed as he entered his thirties. He has squandered several small fortunes. He clearly has trouble with mental disorders including depression. Truly, he has been carried by his wife for decades.
Still, his was a fascinating adventure and one I still find compelling. This book focused in me a love of adventure which has lasted to this day.
