Sail, Patterson & Roughan


We finished this book in just a couple of days. It was a super easy read and it was entertaining. Anne "yelled" at the book like one does at a TV when the characters are doing the obviously wrong thing, and for me, there was a major no-way-José in the plot, but, ya know, it's fiction.

Writer points: 1. These chapters were SHORT! There was a lot of blank page in this book making the hardback book look big, but the reality was space and quick reading. Good? Bad? Neither, just a reminder that entertaining your audience does not have to come with density. 2. Just because something could not possibly happen is no reason not to make it a key part of your story! Go big or go home. 3. This reminds me of the Evanovich book in that we have a very successful writer who knows how to write for a given audience. This is not a bad thing, it's just different than writing for some other purpose. This is pure "entertainment for this audience" writing.
