Présentation de l'éditeur

Four men swim for their lives from the senseless wreck of the American sealing ship Dove: Thomas, a headstrong young sailor; Harrison, the affable, inventive ship's carpenter; Mr. Morgen, the Dove's pedestrian first mate; and the aging Captain Tobit—a short-sighted bungler. Battered, empty-handed, and stripped naked, they wash up on an isolated and uncharted yet bountiful volcanic island rich with all they need to survive and thrive. But almost imediately, the two crewmen realize that, for their fanatical captain, hierarchy outstrips human need.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Motoo Eetee 19 juillet 2002
Par K. Freeman - Publié sur
Despite the blurbs by excellent authors and the good reviews, I didn't find this book to be all that successful, and I admit I don't see the literary significance.
Four seamen -- the captain, first mate, an ordinary seaman and the ship's carpenter -- off a sealing vessel are shipwrecked on an island. The captain proves to be somewhat less than sane, and events deteriorate from there. Details of the castaways' survival -- diet, clothing, canoe-building, and so on -- as well as description of the island setting are given at length.
I found the writing style here a little mundane and sometimes wordier than it had to be. POV is strange, semi-omniscient with occasional forays into limited, including the book's conclusion.
Characters are two-dimensional. Thomas, whose POV we are most often in, is a somewhat unpleasant, selfish, crude individual. His hatred of the undeniably overbearing officers is a major theme, but it never really gets developed. It's all sort of childish resentment of being told what to do; there's no exploration of social class or any other deeper element. It's hard to care for Thomas even when he's in trouble, because he doesn't have sympathetic qualities. His friend Christopher is all-good, cheerful and self-sacrificing. The ship's captain is an unbelievable, half-baked fanatic, a cardboard villain one of whose major crimes appears to be an unlovely personal appearance. And the fourth character, the mate Morgen, is so blank that even the blurb on the book cover could only think of "pedestrian" for him.
The conclusion is peculiarly unsatisfying; we're left hanging, with the physical fate of the one still-living character remaining in the balance, but more importantly with the themes of the book, such as they are, unresolved. To a limited extent, the book raises questions about authority, fanaticism, and class, but it does not offer even limited conclusions.
It's not all bad. The plot does move along with sufficient action, and I found the book reasonably entertaining. I don't, however, think there are grounds for hailing this as a significant work of literature. A competent afternoon's read, yes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Swift action blends well with psychological tension 11 juillet 2002
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur
Four men survive a shipwreck and find themselves on an isolated yet beautiful island with all they need to survive - except trust. A hierarchy arises for the captain in charge, enforced by a dictator who imagines himself a founding father over an isolated new life. Their survival will depend on who emerges as the winner of the power struggle in this moving, absorbing account. Highly recommended: swift action blends well with psychological tension.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing, monotonous 24 décembre 2006
Par G. White - Publié sur
I had high expectations for this book, being quite fond of nautical books and survival stories, both fiction and nonfiction (such as "In the Heart of the Sea" by Nathaniel Philbrick, or the novels of Patrick O'Brian, or accounts of Shackleton's disastrous 'Endurance' expedition). But I was disappointed and even bored by "Motoo Eetee."

The premise of the story was promising, and there was potential both for excitement and thoughtful examination of human psychology. But compared to nonfiction tales of survival, the book was unconvincing and unrealistic. As to psychology, there was absolutely no character development throughout the book, and none of the characters caught my interest or sympathy. I was quite ready for someone, anyone to die just to relieve the monotony. The characters seemed to repeat the same actions, same emotions, same thoughts and same conversations on every page, over and over. The writing style was average at best, irritatingly tedious and boring at worst. There were few surprises in the story and much disappointment in the lack of character development.

And then the ending made me feel as if I had wasted my time and energy. I wished that the story and characters and I had all died in the shipwreck at the beginning so we could have been spared the tedium.

An engaging story which takes you to another time and place. You will smell the salt air and hear the ropes creak as you sail with the crew aboard the sealing ship, the "Dove". The author's detailed knowedge of ships and the speech of the time will propell you directly into the 19th century where you will marvel at the cleverness and inventiveness of the shipwrecked men. Between the settings of the tired ship and the beautiful island, Rogers creates an adventure of old world proportions. A great read!
