Item description for Voyage Along the Horizon: A Novel by Javier Marias & Kristina Cordero...

Voyage Along the Horizon revolves around an intrepid expedition: the eccentric, wealthy Captain Kerrigan, an attractive man with a shadowy past, organizes a trip to Antarctica for a select group of writers, artists, and scientists.
Amid sudden kidnappings, torrid manuscripts, Edwardian spinsters, and lethal duels, this seafaring tale is also a narrative of psychology, obsession, the writer's craft, and human nature, all of which Marías has wrapped up in an evocative, nostalgic novel that is both witty and dark. Fascinated by the question of uncertainty, Marías eschews the solution and prefers to revel in the narrative process itself, and asks the reader to consider the possibility that the truth as we know it isn't nearly as interesting as its own shadow.

Reviews - What do customers think about Voyage Along the Horizon: A Novel?

Fun to read  Mar 21, 2008
Spoiler warning.

I'm not sure how to write this. I'll just say that it was a fun read. Once I picked it up I found that I read the entire book in two short sittings. It's just so . . . weird. It's very interesting and odd. The entire book is a narrative but I never found out who the narrator was. Theres also this weird letter. Its a book within a book but its still pretty interesting. It gets dull at times, especially with the captain but I still liked it. The only thing that really bothered me about the book was it's refusal to resolve. I don't want to be too specific because that may ruin the story for you. Still, it's a fun read overall.
