Nothing sets my heart aflutter like immersing myself in backbreaking sea life of previous eras. I've spent years overheated and thirsty, or chilled stiff along with the crew hauling ropes on the H.M.S. Surprise listening to Patrick O'Brien's tales of the Royal Navy.
Rockbound is no adventure like O'Brien's books, but it satiates the same craving for a window into harder times from the comfort of my twenty first century life. Hearing about hauling line, gutting fish and negotiating the insular and strict social life of a hard scrabble island in Nova Scotia, as well as the humor, folklore, and culture of the people-- I feel set for any time-travel eventuality.
Fantastic narration by James Banning opens the musicality of the the dialect and endeared the characters to me and completely sucked me in to the story.
