This book is as good as any suspense/thriller novel I have read. Even though I don’t know much about sailing I have worked in pre/hospital care so I have some idea about rescues, effects of injuries. How there weren’t more fatalities is beyond me, the bravery of the competitors was astonishing & the skill, composure & also bravery of the rescuers left me speechless.
I come from Sydney, and this race is a big part of Christmas in Sydney, just as it is in Hobart, so this meant it had another means of interesting me.
Mundle’s writing is pretty good. You are immersed in the events. I was exhausted at times reading this book. But that is an indication of the quality of the writing. All up a good read.
