review 1: I was introduced to this book through the local library's book club, and I found it hugely enjoyable. It's a compelling read, and the relentless tension of the voyage, particularly the return journey, is maintained very well. The story's opening is beautifully evocative of life on the Highway: it doesn't go overboard with grimness, as is such a temptation to some authors, but it is honest. The creation of atmosphere throughout the novel I thought well sustained. Everywhere was believable, however exotic. The story of the tigress features on a tour of mine about maritime trade, and I always recommend that the people give the novel a try as we stand outside Tobacco Dock looking in at the statue of the tigress and little John Wade.
review 2: I feel really swindled
... more by this book. There is absolutely nothing on the cover or in the description to warn you of how incredibly brutal and disturbing this book is. I'm not squeamish but I like to know what I'm getting myself into and this gives no hint. I'm not saying don't read it, it's a good book which I think will stick in my mind for a long while, and keep me awake at night. I don't mind a book like that occasionally, I just think the description and cover are totally misleading. BEWARE. In fact this has made me feel so strongly this is my first review. less

Not what I was expecting and better for it. I read it completely unaware of what awaited me.
Fabulously descriptive. Felt like I was part of the unbelievable story.
Not for the faint hearted. Overly long in the middle.
found it hard going
