Floodgate by Alistair MacLean by a thriller I enjoyed immensely. The dialogue was wonderfully varied and refreshing, the characters were not intensely developed but were still better then most thrillers, the plot was interesting and the tense uncertainty kept me glued to the pages. I found this novel to be better written then the biography of Captain Cook I had previously read by MacLean, and look forward to reading more of his books in the future.
A perfect book. The perfect book. –---------------–--------- 2/1/12 Rereading. Maybe it's just the age I was when I first read this, or the iconic language applied to horrific violence, but this book is a kind of a literary reset. Lately I've been in a slight reading rut. Not finishing things. BR makes me love reading again, as fucking corny as that is. This is probably my 9th or 10th time through. Fun fact: the first time I used google, it was to look up one of Cormac's words which I couldn't find in any dictionary. No results. Zero results. This was probably 96 or 97. Sadly I no longer have that marked-up copy, so I have no idea what the word was.
