…Mr. Brindley’s writing is refreshing and clear. The text is clear of typos and grammar errors that mar so many other books, so you can concentrate on the story. He communicates richly the facets of navy life, and we are given enough description to vividly picture the places on the ship such as the quarters, the bowels of the tanks, and the ship’s mess. Ultimately, this book examines prejudice and assumptions and wrestles with the inevitability of our actions: Are we programmed to act as we do, or are we free to act in whatever way we please? Do our roles define us and others around us?
