İlkini çok beğendim. Bu, üstesinden gelmek için bir kabadaydı ve kahramanlar günü kurtarmak için çok az şey yaptı. Çoğunlukla bir sürü aptalca hata yap.
A pleasant enough read but, as only the third Alistair Maclean novel I've read, my least favourite of the three. There is plenty of mystery in the story since the characters' thoughts, even that of the protagonist, Harlow, are never written - only their actions - so we are left to guess at their intentions. But therein lies the problem. Empathy comes before sympathy. How can we care what happens if we are not sympathetic towards the characters, and how can we be sympathetic if we do not know what they are thinking? In this respect it is saved somewhat by the dialogue between Harlow and the love interest, Mary McAlpine. Their words to each other are almost the only insight into the true character of Harlow, and it is through their exchanges that one can develop a vested interest in the outcome of the story. I enjoyed The Way to Dusty Death, but I much preferred Caravan to Vaccares, I hope the rest of Maclean's novels are more like that one.
