5385. The Wreck of the Grosvenor, by W. Clark Russell (read 19 June 2016) I have wanted to read this book for years and when I came across a copy I was glad.. The book was first published in 1877. apparently by Dodd, Mead & Company.. The copy I read was published by Grosset and Dunlap but no year of publication is shown in the book. It starts out very excitingly and event is piled on event, including a rescue of a beautiful woman and her aged father and a murderous mutiny. There is a fierce storm, but after the mutineers leave the ship the story becomes didactic and overly sentimental and its very predictable conclusion made the book less satisfactory. , There is a lot of sailing ship language which certainly suggests the author knew a lot about sailing ships but adds nothing to the enjoyment of the story.… (mere)

This review was written for LibraryThing Member Giveaways.
A wonderful tale of frozen pirates being revived and slowly succumbing to madness that put the lives of a shipwrecked crew in danger. The story is really great, even if the language is dated (it was written in the late 1800's though). I think it would be enjoyed by fans of H.G. Wells or even Jules Verne.

A sea captain's search for his kidnapped daughter is the basis of this exciting novel.
