This dry account of a cargo of convicts gets so bogged down with minutiae that every paragraph becomes a digression. Instead of following one person, delving into his/her life, and introducing secondary persons on the boat, the author attempts to make every person a main focus of the book.

Rees admits, herself, there are practically no records about anyone on the ship during the voyage except through one man, so most of what she writes is repetition of the same few facts told in different ways. Very disappointing.
