This book was so good until the end. I just hate sad endings. I don't see the point in reading and feeling sad at the end of it. On the good side the narrator did an excellent job.

What did you love best about Floodtide?
Giving it 5 stars for historical fiction. In any other genre I would have rated it a 3 as I would consider it more a series of related short stories or novellas than a novel. These stories were somewhat tied up at the end and as I enjoyed hearing the history I stayed interested. As a book, if I had been reading, I would have preferred a faster moving, more interwoven plot. The history was accurate to the times. Great.
What did you like best about this story?
Hearing of the 1960s WA and having my memories of the time and place rekindled.
What about Richard Aspel’s performance did you like?
Good. His vice for several females obviously was not idea, however no one reader can be everything.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Hmmm—it would need editing tighter before it was fit to be a film. A film audience would want to focus on one main story and not a series of stories.
Any additional comments?
I think it needed content editing to appeal to more readers.
Set in Western Australia this is an entertaining story. It had interesting recent events interwoven into the story line such as Australia in the Americas Cup Yachting race.
Overall I enjoyed it.
