Day 9 – At Sea
Pulling out of Santa Cruz de Tenerife last night just after 1800 – the city was back lit by the setting sun. This close to the equator the day light is not lasting until late.
Off we went on to the ocean with a sea that smoothed out into a sheet of glass so quite that it hardly seemed like the ship was moving for most of the night.
Unlike her other books (the Kelly O’Riley series), Keeper of the Keys I found confusing. After listing through the first of CDs, I still did not have a clear idea of where the plot was going or who were the critical characters. Certainly she had a couple in the vein of clueless and wandering plus a particularly strange husband of the now disappeared woman.
I put it aside in favor of Jonathan Lethern”s Men and Comics which is an interesting series of short stories set from the present into some kind of future comprising of character sketches and the “never grown up.”
