Not up to Par

What did you like best about Ramage's Challenge? What did you like least?

This book was full of pointless conversations, and repetitive review of previous events from other books. It was like Pope was simply trying to fill space to complete a books. When reading a series there are always some events and relationships that must be mentioned, but in this book it was over done, with some previous events mentioned two or three times. Also, the conversations between Ramage and his officers and seamen was full of joking, that really lacked the dignity of his position. Overall I have enjoyed this series, but this book was the poorest offering yet.

What about Steven Crossley’s performance did you like?

Crossley's performance continued to shine. He cannot be blamed for the lack of substance in the story and plot.
