Very good read. Enjoyed the interesting characters and their back-stories. Although it's not a mystery book, it had those elements surrounding the characters and events on the ship which kept me reading. Ondaatje's most accessible book.

Very disappointing. Fell apart half-way through with nothing but fragmented scenes that never really lead anywhere. I couldn't take it on a satirical level or as any sort of mystery. It seems like it tries to be both but failing in both instances. "The Financial Lives of the Poets" is a much better read. Hopefully his upcoming book in June is closer to "Poets" than this mess.

Beautifully written and sometimes poetic. A little too detailed on the workings of clocks, but the main plot of a dying man and his thoughts of his father kept me interested. Not sure it deserves a Pulitzer, but it's a helluva debut from the author.

The Professionals was very good, especially for a debut novel.

What Do You Say After You Say Hello - Eric Berne

Following a recent house move and the re-examination of a large section of my book collection, I have been browsing through a reference/non-fiction book that I picked up two decades ago on a whim because the cover made me smile:
