"A thrillingly good book" (Martin Amis)
"What starts as merely masterful storytelling becomes something dreamlike and haunting; it's not a book you easily forget" ( The Independent on Sunday)
"Before Lord of the Flies there was A High Wind in Jamaica, an uninching, wryly observed portrait of the madness of children" ( The Guardian)
"On one level it's an exciting adventure story with great storms and earthquakes, terrific animals, unruly children and some dubious pirates. What more, when young, could you want? But all this coexists with another narrative, darker and more sophisticated, complex and tragic. You can read this book over again and have read a different novel." (Michael Holroyd The Guardian)
"A surreal novel of childhood adventure that turns how we see the human mind upside down" (John Gray The Observer)
Daring classic tale of childhood adventure on the high seas, read by Michael Maloney.
