Loved it! What a unique concept. Although I was fairly unfamiliar with naval terms, I was able to follow that side of the story and learned quite a bit about naval life and discipline. And the idea of being transported to a parallel universe that's like ours in some ways and very different in others was fascinating.
This book may have caused us to coin the phrase, "Books that destroyed me"... a huge part in the senior year radical change of worldview. Key in my process of discovering mortality. Brilliant social-anthro insight into the ways in which humans try and get immortality -- and all the harm this does. Connects Freud and Kierkegaard. This is existential psychoanalytic theory at its best!
