Oceans of Trouble, although quite different from Trouble Triangle, uses the same engaging storytelling style infused with humor. In this case, the story is more suspenseful. Tyler, the unlikely hero of both stories, finds himself in trouble again. He has no true allies in the world and manages to put himself into some very difficult situations. Each time he has talked his way out of one, he'd put himself into another. I couldn't tear myself away, nervous, hoping that Tyler would somehow prevail.
The characters in this book are another great strength. I enjoy reading stories where I feel like I have actually met the characters when I'm done reading. Travis Casey certainly does this. I've found myself discussing the book and referring to Tyler as if he is a real guy, and even the supporting cast each have a unique, realistic, but complex personality. Watching them interact as the plot unfolds is entertaining, and there is still lots for me to think about even after finishing the story.
The bulk of the book takes place on a ship. The details of daily life on the ship are not overwhelming, and I found the ship-based scenes far more interesting than I would have predicted. For me, there was not a dull moment in the whole book.
It's part of a trilogy, but the only thing binding the first two books is the main character and the Navy, so I don't think you have to read Trouble Triangle first -- although some of the situations are more intense if you do. It's completely worth checking out, and I suspect many people will be as enthralled as I was. Then, you can join me as I anxiously await the third installment of Tyler's adventures.
From the opening pages, Tyler finds himself in trouble. The trouble only deepens as he heads out to sea, with a cast of memorable villains out to make Tyler's life miserable. Tyler's antics often had be shaking my head in amused dismay as he tries to get himself out of trouble and instead lands in more. By the end, it's impossible not to root for him to catch some sort of break, and the path to get there is a laugh a minute.
Oceans of Trouble is another laugh out loud romp through Tyler's life. Since this one is on board a ship, we get to see much more in the way of Navy life. I have to admit to being shocked at a few of the things that happened (you'll know what I mean when they cross the equator) but have since seen videos showing that this is, in fact, a true-to-life accounting of what happens, which made it all that more interesting to me.
As far as characters, Travis Casey writes big, over-the-top personalities, which makes the humor so great! I will warn that the main antagonist in Tyler's life might be offensive to some, as he is definitely larger than life. Personally, I thought he was more clever than Tyler at times, and it kept me thoroughly entertained. I didn't know from chapter to chapter whether Tyler would even survive this book to finish out the trilogy. And the ending...well, I don't want to do any spoilers, but I was really shocked (in a good way) by how this book concludes.
Another great title by this author and I will anxiously wait for the next installment. This is on my re-read pile, for sure!

I kept reading, thinking that it couldn't get any worse and that maybe the end would vindicate the rest. No. I might recommend this for undereducated 19 or 20 year olds.Published on May 31, 2014 by Wandaful
