Mutiny on the Bounty book. I can't make a comparison between John Boyne's interpretation of events and William Bligh's, though of course he used it as a source, but Boyne skilfully brought the voyage and the characters to life through the voice of John Jacob Turnstile. Turnstile - nicknamed "Turnip" by the crew - has the cheek and sass of a low-born petty thief from Portsmouth, nicely balanced with his own, largely under-educated intelligence and an honourable character.
Note that John Boyne openly calls his book "A NOVEL of the Bounty," and with this tells us that he's not writing a serious history, but having fun with an oft-told tale
Note that John Boyne openly calls his book "A NOVEL of the Bounty," and with this tells us that he's not writing a serious history, but having fun with an oft-told tale. Yet in doing so, he often comes closer to the truth about the Bounty Mutiny than many would-be serious "court historians. He also writes a very funny book.
