  1. Man Overboard is a novel whose opening action takes place on the very real Rapids Prince, one of several large steamships which ran the rapids on the St Lawrence between Prescott and Montreal, Canada before the St Lawrence Seaway was built Though dangerous when it passed through the maelstrom, the trip was otherwise routine So, when high school friends Scott and Adam took summer jobs as deckhands on the Rapids Prince, they never expected to have the kind of adventure it turned out to be, and all [...]


  2. This book caught my eye when I noticed that it was set during WWII I didn t really read beyond that but I figured boating and war is an interesting combination.Thus I got to be surprised to discover that this book is set in Canada on a riverboat between Prescott and Montreal where two best friends have secured jobs for the summer of 1943 as most of the other men are off at war Scott and Adam become involved in preventing German espionage, inspired by the real life fact of German agents arriving [...]


  3. Reason for Reading Sounded like a book my seafaring adventure loving son would enjoy Plus I had not heard of this Canadian author before and yet he has written a handful of books A very satisfying book This book is mostly going to be enjoyed by a specific audience Boys from the ages of 10 to 12 However the main characters are around sixteen, with girlfriends, thus it will also appeal to reluctant teen readers The plot is an action packed adventure without too much time for character development [...]


  4. In July of 1943, Adam and his friend Scott take jobs on the Rapids Prince to make some money during the summer Adam moves up to a server in the ship s dining room and Scott works as a deckhand by the always find ways to spend their time together When Scott overhears a suspicious conversation about Nazis who are planning to block the St Lawrence River in Cananda, he realizes he has been spotted and he is in danger Adam comes to his aid and creates a diversion so he can get away but Adam is captur [...]


  5. An excellent action packed adventure novel, great for middle grade boys who like a story to start right off with the action, no waiting around for slow character or setting building Right off the bat we are on a ship cruising the rapids of the St Lawrence River, and someone is about to fall overboard, and our hero, Scott, 16, a deckhand on the ship, is afraid to reveal that he knows there is a Nazi spy on board Whew And away we go The book is long on action spies, double agents, kidnapping, thug [...]


  6. Curtis Parkinson lives on a sailboat and uses his knowledge about sailing as the basis for several of his nautical novels for young adults In Man Overboard 16 year old Scott and his friend Adam score summer jobs as deckhands on the Rapids Prince, a hip that travels between Montreal and Prescott, a town on the St Lawrence River When Adam stumbles onto information about a German agent, he decide not to tell anybody Adam is afraid that if the captain finds out where Adam was when he overheard the c [...]


  7. Compared to the other ratings and comments this book got, I feel like it was a let down The characters were flat, the story predictable, and the action was unsatisfying I m normally not one to read historical fiction, and I can see why The premise of this book is great but the execution lacked We had characters introduced who are never mentioned again, yet have significant importance to the plot of the story One of these was the red haired man who not only saves Scott once, but twice He s an FBI [...]


  8. I received this book as a giveaway When the package first got here, my 11 year old son stole it out of my hands, saying, Finally, a book for me He disappeared for half a day, and when he emerged he made me order Curtis Parkinson s older books so he could read those as well I also enjoyed this young adult book it was fast paced, full of dilemma, mystery, and a wee bit of romance just right for a boy of a certain age The combination of ships, Nazis, kidnapping, and a diabolical plan were spot on I [...]


  9. Man Overboard by Curtis Parkinson is a very nice young adult mystery I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book The mystery isn t particularly deep, or mysterious, but Parkinson still manages to impart tension and suspense to the reader It is a relatively short book 152 pages so there isn t a lot of room for plot twists, but still Parkinson manages to effect a sense of suspense and excitement about the mysterious German agent A good read for young adults.


  10. Man Overboard is a fairly fun juvenile story set in Canada in 1943 Through the characters Scott and Adam and others, Curtis Parkinson weaves a World War II era tale that mixes friendship, summer jobs, and the threat of Nazi spies Even though, being 30 something, I m not close to being within the intended target age of this book, I find this book actually quite endearing and for the most part well written There were certainly a handful of eye rolling moments where the book s plot simply stretched [...]


  11. This was a decent read, but not as exciting or unputdownable as I was expecting Based on historical fact, but not a particular event, there wasn t enough substance to it to really draw me in If someone hands this to a kid, they will be engaged enough to keep reading, but it won t blow anybody away.



  12. fast paced adventure that had me on the edge of my seat until the end Just the right length for reluctant readers.
