When is a mutiny not one?

What made the experience of listening to The Weird Circle the most enjoyable?

The story reminded me of Mutiny on the Bounty. What do you do when your Captain is crazy? Is it better to do the insane things he asks or put him off the ship and wait to be rescued? This is the basic plot.


What other book might you compare The Weird Circle to and why?

The Caine Mutiny. Same story, crazy captain and crew needs to justify their reasoning for the mutiny.


Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Good radio show, all are above par.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the two survivors of the boat reunite. Who will people believe?
