I was first forced to read this book in grade 9 as part of English. It was of all the books I read for English in high school the only one I felt at the end I understood why we had been assigned to read it.
It is an adventure story of the same ilk as Treasure Island. Christian values and practicals are part of the story but not critical to understanding it. More importantly it is about how we view ourselves and the choices we make. I would say that any teenager would likely have a good chance of enjoying the story.

This is a well put-together story with a cast of engaging characters and scenes that made me smile and groan. There were plenty of ups and downs to keep me interested. I suppose that it's a sort of action adventure but the friendship of the main characters was what I felt drove the story.
I have to thank Chris de Burgh as I got this downlaod as a result of listening to his 'Moonfleet and other stories' and I'm really pleased that I did.

I loved it and would recommend it to anyone, particularly those interested in history and having knowledge of the sea. It was packed with action, reflection snd morality in the best sense of the word
