Summary

This vivid account of life, and death, at sea--from the viewpoint of a 14-year-old pickpocket on board--is packed with humor, violence, and historical detail, while presenting an intriguingly different portrait of Captain Bligh and Mr. Christian.

Author Biography

John Boyne is the author of Crippen, The Thief of Time, Next of Kin, and the New York Times and internationally bestselling The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Boyne won two Irish Book Awards (the People’s Choice and the Children’s) for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, which has recently been made into a Miramax feature film, and his novels have been translated into more than thirty languages. He lives with his partner in Dublin. You can visit him online at www.johnboyne.com.

Table of Contents

“Enthralling . . . Boyne’s novel can stand comparison with William Golding’s Rites of Passage. Written with a total command of naval expertise, Mutiny is storytelling at its most accomplished.” --The Independent (UK)

“Boyne’s dialogue not only shimmers as brightly as sunlight on the water, his narrative carries us to a land more exotic than Tahiti, to a place where his words illuminate the human condition. Do you believe that you know the story of the Bounty? I assure you that you do not until you have read this singular tale.” --Edward Chupack, author of Silver

“The writing grows into a mesmerizing tour-de-force . . . this is a remarkable and compelling piece of storytelling.” --The Irish Times

“Every page [is] filled with tension and suspense. . . . Boyne is a spellbinding storyteller. He wonderfully evokes a particular atmosphere. Most of all he tells a cracking good tale.” --The Sunday Independent (Ireland)
