Quick Review: Cape Cod by William Martin

on June 27, 2009

Since I enjoyed “Harvard Yard” so much by Martin, I read his “Cape Cod” this month. Martin’s books are long — this one was over 600 pages — but they don’t disappoint. As in “Harvard Yard”, “Cape Cod” follows an item (in this case a diary from the Mayflower) down through the centuries and follows two families whose histories are linked. There is mystery and history intertwined, along with a few thrills and some human interest stories. I loved it!
I’ll have to give it 4 1/2 stars!

    Hmm. I only gave this 3 stars. Too long, with too much stuff (whether or not to develop the land) that grew tiresome.

      Some of my friends have found his books long, too. I think I particularly like them since I live in Massachusetts and LOVE the history here and his books tie in. 🙂 -beth

        I like the Cape very much. We go there every year. But Martin didn’t continue with the compelling theme he began with. Too rambling, with uninviting modern characters.

Let me know what you think!
