An enjoyable read It grew on me as I read further into it ite a yarn from a fellow who doesn t like dogs or people I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway As a former part of the navy nuclear power program there were several concerns I had that were not addressed They tended to hang in the back of my mind and overshadow everything The first chapter kind of set the wrong tone for the book but it settled in after that The characters were well developed and the story flowed well Overall #A Decent Read And #decent read and for the most part I didn t know what to expect when I began this novel which I won through Goodreads The plot is very niue The subject matter is approached with both insight and humor The author has crafted a great cast of characters I found this novel to be a balanced blend of fact and fiction This was a very enjoyable and informative read I obtained a copy of the book through a Goodreads giveawayThe description for this book
*was one that *one that intriguing Bringing a nuclear power plant aboard a Russian aircraft carrier to a reservation in Northern Minnesota was a strange plotline but one that had the potential to highlight energy and environmental justice issues The reality of the book was less fulfillingLet s start off with the HUGE plotline issues First a private citizen can just buy a decommissioned aircraft carrier from Russia Second a boat that is a minimum of 827 feet in length the actual dimensions are not stated in the book can travel Smitten undetected by the US government from Europe and through the St Lawrence SeawayGreat Lakes all the way to Minnesota Third that the boat can even get to Minnesota by water since it is larger than the locks at the Welland Canal between Lakes Erie and Ontario Next the main character in the story Tyler comes off especially at the beginning of the book as a spoiled entitled but bored rich person Spending everything he has and keeping his wife totally in the dark he goes on hisixotic adventure planning for everything except for reality as he tweaks his nose at the Federal Government dragging a 40000 ton boat half way across the Land of a Thousand Lakes A White Slave in Turkey Book 1 - A BDSM Novel under the help of diplomatic immunity for a foreign national shipsing outdated portaging lawsThen there s the it would never happen scene of environmentalists willingly going on a what turns into a round the world trip to see how nuclear is the only solution to our power needs and maintain a livable environment 1898 unless they go to a wind or solar farm which they don t I won t go into the rich people club he s dragged into because it s name dropping to fill a sizeable number of pages He doesn tse them for much support Actually for all of his wealth and status he is rather insecure and maybe this story would have worked a little bit After earning his PhD in nuclear physics Tyler Chambers invents the pool noodle He enjoys his expensive toys lush mansion and life of comfort but something is missing A chance meeting with fellow billionaires sparks his imagination and he sets forth on a new venture He will buy a nuclear aircraft carrier sail it through the Great Lakes drag it across Northern Minnesota to an Indian reservation and ho. .
