What is your opinion of the book? Would you recommend the book? Why or why not? Clarify your point of view with 3 or more reasons. Support your reasons with specific examples from the book

So far this book is kind of cool yet kind of uneventful. But I have not got very far into it. I would not recommend this book unless you have to read it. 1, it is kind of slow, it takes a long time for something intresting to happen. 2, it is sad, a lot of people die on the boat. 3, there is very few characters.

What is the main setting of the book (location and time period)?
