Summary

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.

Reviews

Bernie

- The Ghost Ship

Such a shame that there are multiple narrators! You get a false sense of the enjoyment in the book in the first eight chapters and then it goes down hill from there, the last two chapters are some of the worst!

nice reading voice, cadence becomes extremely annoying, interesting book

Dave

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.
