The only reason I tried this book was on advice of Boston Globe's Alex Beam's beaming suggestion. He liked this book significantly more than Boys In The Boat. WRONG! Boys In The Boat is a rare triumph, Flat Water Tuesday has nothing much really to do with crew. It is a mundane ordinary tale of teen angst set in a rich boy's east coast boarding school with all too frequent trips forward to more adult angst and dysfunction all of which has been done much better in other tomes. It all gave me the ZZZZZZ's whereas Boys In The Boat had me riveted start to finish. Flat's narration was very good however, but could not rescue an otherwise boring effort. Take my advice, ignore Mr. Beam, read Boys In The Boat and wait for the upcoming movie about same. Methinks Mr. Brown's success in getting his book to the big screen made the Globe's reviewer not a little overly envious.
