As the title suggests, I found this book tedious. Too much information about characters, which became boring, the language left me floundering. I had not much idea of what was being said at times, especially the language used by the crew (1st mate, Captain ) of the Ibis, found myself skipping these, probably important rambings.
To sum up, Long, overworded, boring mostly and quite tedious.
I love books with a historical theme. This book was complex and the use of words that were not easily understood, to the point that a dictionary/glossary was added to help with pronunciation and meaning. Not what I expected at all. The ending was very disappointing, almost to the point that it seemed rushed to get it done. terrible,awful.
