One s reading life is too abbreviated to waste on books that are long on page length and short on information As evidenced by her otherwise excellent Masters of Rome series and this bit of over researched fluff McCullough desperately needs an editor Morgan s Run aka life as in I had a good run as well as the name of a government sanction rum distillery on Norfolk Island is a biography of Richard Morgan freeman of Bristol transported by a typical late 18th century British miscarriage of justice to Norfolk Island a First Fleet colony of convict settled Australia The book begins with the announcement of the War of Independence in 1776 albeit from a typical Bristol tavern point of view though Richard s transporting aboard the Alexander doesn t take place until 1788 This represents 236 mind numbing pages into the book with arrival in Botany Bay awaiting the turn of yet another 100 pages meaning that than half of the book s 600 pages are dull and irrelevant prologue in which Richard Morgan is acted upon than actorThings pick up a bit as Morgan is taken from Plymouth for a year s sail to arrive in Botany Bay Through revealed competence and an apparent encyclopedic memory Morgan becomes head man among his small set of convicts Unfortunately most of the conflict is fleeting and uickly resolved or abandoned and the laconic Morgan makes for such poor company that even McCullough appears glad for opportunities to abandon him as the focus of her narrative chiefly toward the end when she introduces a new character from off the Lady Juliana of the Second Fleet As always McCullough captures the tenor of the times and dialogue well but she appears overwhelmed by ephemera descriptions of daily weather Morgan s random accounting of the Norfolk Island sawpit intake for a given week what Morgan plans to have for dinner of an evening based on current garden inventory the seuential moves in a game of chess the distribution list of the latest litter of terrier puppies and so forth And her afterword suggests she hoped to write a follow up The book was as substantial as styrofoam cumbersome bulky and in need of compression More worth a skim than a full read

Morgan's Run free read ´ 106 Oned and exiled to the penal colonies of eighteenth century Australia His life is shattered but Morgan refuses to surrender overcoming all obstacles to find unexpected contentment and happiness in the harsh early days of Australia's settlementF. I wanted to throw this book out of the window at least 5 times while reading it Yet somehow I struggled to the bitter horrible ending I have two main complaints1 Richard Morgan is seriously annoying No real human is that perfect all the time He has the perfect body perfect mind perfect manners perfect skills for every situation and perfect ability to control himself no matter what happens During hundreds of pages the man never does anything wrong and everyone adores him Personally I couldn t care less what happens to him which is already a bad sign in a book that revolves so heavily around one person2 The women in this book are either non existent or completely unrealistic There is not a single believable female in this story The women in England are hysterical caretakers who can t control their feelings The female prisoners are sad victims who if they are smart and understand their place are being sexually abused by the men not Mr Morgan of course he has no sexual desires The women who came to Botany Bay with the officers are only mentioned as providing sexual services to each other s husbands At the end of the book we meet one woman who is described in detail Her main characteristic Being hopelessly dependant on Richard Morgan I find it hard to believe that this would be the whole truth about women in the 18th century Without wanting to exaggerate I would describe this book as anti feministIn conclusion I would have much rather read an honestly historical account about this journey
