The Lusitania

A Novel Excerpt

by Robert Olen Butler

This extract deserves a comment. I was gripped by the narrative, the build-up of tension to the inevitable bombing. And the reaction of the MC who is removed from the crowd literally and mentally through his war experiences. He is one step ahead of the others.

Olen Butler shows how to tell a master story without adjectives, using action verbs which surely is the mark of a skilled writer.

I want to read more and will buy his book.
