A good read, a bad ISP!

I've just finished A Sea Change by Michael Arditti (ISBN-10: 1904559212) and was left very uplifted. I got downstairs for breakfast to find my cable is down again - less uplifting!

Based on a real-life voyage from Nazi Germany to Havana in 1939, The Sea Change is the "memoir" of Karl. As heir to a fortune, he begins as a spoilt, self-conscious young aesthete and, in the course of the voyage, becomes a man - falling in love with the beautiful Johanna, becoming reconciled to his father, battling Nazi crew members and eventually having his bar mitzvah.
