Robert Louis Stevenson & Lloyd Osbourne: The Ebb-Tide

Hi

The Ebb-Tide is the second story in the book. It has 146 pages and at the end of the book there are three contemporary reviews for a total of 13 pages.
You can find all my Robert Louis Stevenson reviews here.

“Published in 1894, the year of Stevenson's death, this novel tells of three unscrupulous men entrusted to deliver a cargo of champagne aboard a ship whose crew has died of smallpox. The three embark on a drunken voyage, only to discover an island whose sole European inhabitant, Attwater, has amassed a fortune in pearls.”

I really didn’t care for this story; it is boring, it’s all over the place and it’s hard to grasp what’s actually happening.

Meh.

See you next time.
