I'm enjoying it, and it reads very smooth and easy, but it's not the most original thing I've ever read. a lot of very familiar scenarios. my favorite Murder Mystery is a "boat trip"--The False Inspector Dew--and some other good ones have created in me a fondness for the sub-genre, so all the claustrophobic effect, and the roster of strangers who may or may not be a threat to the main character, are fun things for me to get into again. we'll see; I have no idea how this book is going to rate with me by the end, but not 5 stars, because 5 stars means something either more original, or something so freakin' cool that it overrides all complaints including "reminds me of such-and-such, a bit". I don't think this is that.
