The Ghost Ship

The Ghost Ship by John C. Hutcheson
By: (1840-1897)

This book intentionally veers in and out of the supernatural, as the title implies. The officers get more and more bewildered as they work out their position, and yet again encounter the same vessel going in an impossible direction. Having warned you of this, I must say that it is a well-written book about life aboard an ocean-going steamer at about the end of the nineteenth century.

Having warned you of this, I must say that it is a well written book about life aboard an ocean going steamer at about the end of the nineteenth century.

Subject: fiction
nice reading voice, cadence becomes extremely annoying, interesting book

A well written book that is full of suspense, interesting characters and many twists and turns. The American reader that tries to get 'in character' for each character and who whistles every time he says a word with 's' in it almost wrecked the experience, however.
