    I went into this totally blind and this author did a great job. Learned about Magellan, and even more importantly learned the context for all these shenanigans being so important

    Very well written and fascinating book. The author does a superb job of narrating the journey while providing a great history lesson to boot. I honestly did not know a lot about Magellan's journey, but found myself captivated throughout.
  • Delightful Story of Exploration

    Great story that proved fascinating on so many levels; the character of Magellan, alternately courageous and persistent but flawed, the descriptions of life on the ships, the clash of European and native cultures, the geography of circumnavigating the globe, the economics of the spice trade, etc. Great read.
