Overboard is one of the calmest, most real-life examples of good writing I've ever run into.
Not a lot of excitement. Not a lot of described sex. At the end, we get a synopsis ending of long life and happiness.
Wow, there are so any little things to list here. The problems encountered are of a realistic nature -- Mere bumps in the road by other stories' scale, but real enough to real people. Speaking of real people, each character in the novel comes alive with multidimensional personalities. The progression is logical, easy to foresee, and yet highly enjoyable and logical. Details keep this work interesting even in the less interesting parts. The writing itself is very good.
The Last Call:
If you live by smash'em'up or high drama a, you can safely skip this one. If, however, you want something relaxing and soothig to help the raw nerves left by shooters and cheating wives, this is the story for you. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and a looking forward to Handyman's next work.
