“Two years,” thought Philip, “two years from Amine!” and he sighed deeply, for he felt that their separation might be for ever.

“Nay, my son, two years is not so long,” said Mynheer Kloots, who observed the passing cloud on Philip’s brow. “I was once five years away, and was unfortunate, for I brought home nothing, not even my ship. I was sent to Chittagong, on the east side of the great Bay of Bengala, and lay for three months in the river.

It is also a book about ghosts, creatures from the

Libro de aventuras y misterio, aunque lo más interesante es cómo retrata perfectamente la sociedad pensante de principios del siglo XIX, el racismo, la intransigencia De la Iglesia, la xenofobia... Los personajes más interesantes de la historia sin duda Amina y Krantz, sin ellos el libro sería un to

Interesante libro de aventuras sobre el mito del "Holandés Errante".
La prosa de inicios del XIX se hace un poco pesada y grandilocuente. La primera parte del libro puede llegar a aburrir por los vaivenes del argumento pero la segunda mitad se convierte en un relato de aventuras marineras que enganch

So, at my day job, I was looking at material to include in a forthcoming GOTHIC story e-book collection (we like to throw in some novels as bonuses), and I decided to process this classic Gothic novel about the Flying Dutchman, as it was long on my reading list anyway so why not kill two birds with
