Whirlaway starts out like the drunken ramblings of a madman. It goes on and on, like the world’s most dull, dry, boring as shit autobiography.
The main character is a total scumbag who uses everybody around him, yet seems to have the gall to look down on them. Up until this book got to the point where the main cast got their yacht, I struggled to figure out who the hell this book was meant for.
As soon as they got the yacht, I knew. The author is clearly very familiar with nautical terms and sailing and that’s obvious. The book takes on whole new energy. It came across to me as the type of book my car-obsessed brother would write if he wasn’t illiterate. This book is written for those people who have no friends and no hobbies. All they do is talk about that one thing that interests them to anybody who will listen. All women are to them is something to have sex with.
When I saw the author’s bio on Goodreads and the majority of it was about Hawaii, sailing, scuba diving, etc. I got the impression this guy was just like my brother. One of the reviews stated that it wasn’t well known outside of Hawaii and I’d bed that’s because the majority of the intended audience is illiterate and wouldn’t pick up a book if you paid them.
With all the women in this story just being sex objects and characters talking about “shooting fags”, it’s a mystery to me why the author thought this turd would be a good book to have re-published in the modern-day.
I occasionally re-read books I know are terrible or watch garbage movies to tear them apart. This book isn’t one of those books. This book is terrible in every way possible. The characters are unlikable pricks. The writing is dull, dry, boring, lifeless, and insufferable. The book is clearly a relic of the past and should have died there. Even the narrator spends the entire start of the book sounding bored out of his mind.
There are too many books out there by authors who deserve your support and far too many incredible stories to be read. Don’t waste your time with this piece of trash.
