Too long, but worth it
This book is 16 hours long and it would have been a great book, if Cornwell would shorten it to maybe 12 hours. Sometimes, everything takes so long!!! And Starbuck doesn't think one second about the destiny of the slaves, he just wants to rebell against his father....but still, its a exciting story with interesting characters and I'll buy the second book - sorry for my bad english
