Although Bagley gave a bit of a surprise at the end. Paul Tyreman's narration was very good. It held my interest from star to finish. The historical context and science was well researched and plausible. I had a hard time warming up to the characters. The protagonists were a bit too perfect. The exception was Jordy, the Scottish ex-commando who is the owner and captain of the brig Esmerelda.
I also don't like the use of general terms like "scientist." Real life scientists would refer to their trade much more specifically. "Marine geologist" would have better described Mike Trevelian than "oceanographer". But I'm being picky. This is a good book for a guy. If you like Michael Crichton, Bernard Cornwell, Andy Weir I think you would enjoy this book. Bagley is not in their class but I think you'll find it entertaining.
