For some reason I enjoy books that have pirates and ships in them I even used to keep a list of ship terms so I could refer to it when reading My dad had this book by John Masefield with a ship on its cover and it was called Victorious Troy or the Hurrying Angel He let me have it and I found it surprisingly good I wasn t sure how I d feel about an entire book about a ship but I enjoyed it and liked Masefield s writing and characterization When I saw that my dad had this book The Bird of Dawning I knew I d have to read it My interest in books withabout ships has waned since I was younger so I ve put off reading this book worried that I wouldn t enjoy it I was definitely worried for nothingThis book starts off with a basic characterization of its protagonist This is Cruiser He s 5 8 and he has dark hair and pale skin He s a good guy and wants to be an artist Something along those lines But once Masefield gets past the introductions the story takes off and it grabbed my interest The main plot of The Bird of Dawning is that a steamship sinks The Blackgauntlet a ship in the China Fleet heading home from England and hoping to win the prize as the first ship to dock in London from the fleet She is also the ship on which Cruiser is a second mate There are two boats that will carry the crew away from the sinking ship to relative safety but only one of them makes it There are sixteen men living in an eighteen foot boat on the open seas with little provisions and no drinking water If you re wondering where The Bird of Dawning comes in I was wondering too through almost half the book but it does make sense as the title and it works really well of course the alternate title The Fortunes of the Sea makes sense but is perhaps slightly less poeticThere are shipping terms a plenty and Masefield describes the crew s actions as well as the ships in detail but I never felt bogged down by jargon I could picture much of what he described and when I couldn t it didn t matter for the story Also there is a handy list of terms built in to the back of the book that a general readership may need The characters are well drawn Cruiser is a good guy but he has his moments of arrogance or anger that make him human Captain Dunstibourne and Captain Miserden are especially interesting characters psychologically for how they treat their crews and the decisions they make about their ships The conflicts between man and nature and between the men on the ships and the boat are realistic I definitely had strong feelings about the characters and who was right and who needed to adjust their perspectives and attitudes And the subplot about Captain Miserden the captain of the Bird of Dawning and his belief in the Prophet Habakkuk the Fire the FP Follower of the Prophet was brilliant I wish there were of that The underlying themes and messages of this book are also very interesting There is the whole religious fanatic thing mentioned just above but there are also the literal crash between the new at the time the story takes place steamers and the old clippers the symbolism of the boat on the open sea and man s interaction with nature the race home of the China Fleet and other aspects of the book that can be analyzed and carrytake on deeper meaning Oh and it s funny You have a bunch of grown men on a ship or a boat together there are foul language rude comments double entendre etc I chuckled a few times reading this especially when the shot was fired at someone who really deserved itOverall this book surprised me It s now my third Masefield I ve also read his play The Tragedy of Pompey the Great and I would definitely read by him My dad doesn t really buy and sell used books any but if I happen upon a Masefield I would definitely snatch it up I recommend this book if you re a fan of Masefield if you also like books about ships or if you enjoy adventure stories with strong characters vivid descriptions and suspense Dark Pattern in 1933 this classic sea adventure tells of the Blackgauntlet and her homeward bound race from China to London Disaster strikes when the ship American Vampire is struck at night by a passing steam. For some reason I enjoy books that have pirates and ships Portuguese English Bilingual Visual Dictionary it when reading My dad had this book by John Masefield with a ship on Ann Lees Other Stories its cover and Ann Lees Other Stories it was called Victorious Troy or the Hurrying Angel He let me have A Cane in Her Hand Concept Book it and I found Dressed in Dreams it and liked Masefield s writing and characterization When I saw that my dad had this book The Bird of Dawning I knew I d have to read Kate Hardy it My FBI读心术 interest Ondskan in books withabout ships has waned since I was younger so I ve put off reading this book worried that I wouldn t enjoy Model Spy The Specialists it I was definitely worried for nothingThis book starts off with a basic characterization of Ghost Singer A Novel its protagonist This Diverse Energies is Cruiser He s 5 8 and he has dark hair and pale skin He s a good guy and wants to be an artist Something along those lines But once Masefield gets past the I Have Never First Comes Love #2 introductions the story takes off and Teaching Tips A Guide Book for the Beginning College Teacher it grabbed my Love Connection interest The main plot of The Bird of Dawning The Case Of The Bear Scare is that a steamship sinks The Blackgauntlet a ship Mediated How the Media Shapes Your World and the Way You Live in It in the China Fleet heading home from England and hoping to win the prize as the first ship to dock Reprisal The Time Weaver Chronicles #3 in London from the fleet She The Hormone Diaries is also the ship on which Cruiser The Knights of Avlor Trilogy is a second mate There are two boats that will carry the crew away from the sinking ship to relative safety but only one of them makes Something Was Missing it There are sixteen men living Blood Struggle The Rise of Modern Indian Nations in an eighteen foot boat on the open seas with little provisions and no drinking water If you re wondering where The Bird of Dawning comes Breaking the Silence in I was wondering too through almost half the book but Stop Self Sabotage it does make sense as the title and Gate The Knights of Avlor #2 it works really well of course the alternate title The Fortunes of the Sea makes sense but زن بودن is perhaps slightly less poeticThere are shipping terms a plenty and Masefield describes the crew s actions as well as the ships Sweet Annie's Pass in detail but I never felt bogged down by jargon I could picture much of what he described and when I couldn t Mirrors Never Lie it didn t matter for the story Also there The Map of My Dead Pilots is a handy list of terms built Curves Twists and Bends in to the back of the book that a general readership may need The characters are well drawn Cruiser The Resume is Dead is a good guy but he has his moments of arrogance or anger that make him human Captain Dunstibourne and Captain Miserden are especially When sex becomes work interesting characters psychologically for how they treat their crews and the decisions they make about their ships The conflicts between man and nature and between the men on the ships and the boat are realistic I definitely had strong feelings about the characters and who was right and who needed to adjust their perspectives and attitudes And the subplot about Captain Miserden the captain of the Bird of Dawning and his belief Ninja Rella in the Prophet Habakkuk the Fire the FP Follower of the Prophet was brilliant I wish there were of that The underlying themes and messages of this book are also very Iris Avenue Rose Hill Mysteries #3 interesting There Honor and Shame and the Unity of the Mediterranean Special Publication of the American Anthropological Association is the whole religious fanatic thing mentioned just above but there are also the literal crash between the new at the time the story takes place steamers and the old clippers the symbolism of the boat on the open sea and man s Harvest Season An Anthology by the SF Sueecast interaction with nature the race home of the China Fleet and other aspects of the book that can be analyzed and carrytake on deeper meaning Oh and The Englishman's Daughter A True Story of Love and Betrayal in World War I it s funny You have a bunch of grown men on a ship or a boat together there are foul language rude comments double entendre etc I chuckled a few times reading this especially when the shot was fired at someone who really deserved A Bitter Draught Ravenwood Mysteries #2 itOverall this book surprised me It s now my third Masefield I ve also read his play The Tragedy of Pompey the Great and I would definitely read by him My dad doesn t really buy and sell used books any but Jackson Pollock Works from the Museum of Modern Art New York and from European Collections if I happen upon a Masefield I would definitely snatch The Sheik’s Virgin Lover it up I recommend this book The Rule of the Road An International Guide to History and Practice if you re a fan of Masefield Courting Catherine if you also like books about ships or Todos se van if you enjoy adventure stories with strong characters vivid descriptions and suspense
