    Read ´ Batavia's Graveyard: The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest Mutiny Batavia's Graveyard, The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest MutinyA well researched and well written account of one of the most horrific ship wrecks in history The wreck itself was a disaster but what some of the survivors did to their shipmates afterward is hard to believe and terrible to read about even in todays worlds of serial killers and mass murdersReading this book it's difficult to believe that human beings can commit some of the acts that are depicted And for no real reason other than to wield power over othersThis book also paints a detailed and rather unflattering portrait of the Dutch East India Company VOC and it's business practices While the ship wreck survivors acted the way they di

    Read ´ Batavia's Graveyard: The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest Mutiny Batavia's Graveyard, The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest MutinyBook Club suggestion not something I usually go for but that’s the delight of a book club The book started off all engines steaming then there was a couple of chapters when the book went of at a slight tangent giving far too much background on the characters which we were to then read about This point I was skipping pages and not looking forward to what seems to be a very large section of the book yet to goThe story did move on then at uite a pace which was very gruesomeOnce the story had been told these was then padding giving detail on research that had been carried out on other chara

    Read ´ Batavia's Graveyard: The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest Mutiny Batavia's Graveyard, The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest MutinyThis is one of those better than fiction books On the one hand it tells the story of the survivors of the Batavia a Dutch East Indiaman that runs aground somewhere near the coast of Australia and yet it also gives a fascianating account of life in seventeenth century Netherlands the Dutch East India Company life on an East Indiaman and conditions on the Islands of the East Indies for Dutch colonists at the time I'm fascinated by books on the Age of Discovery and this one is sort of a twisted version Mike Dash is an excellent writier and the book is fascinating from beginning to end I read it in less than a day It is a true life horror story and I would definitely recommend if you ar

    Read ´ Batavia's Graveyard: The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest Mutiny Batavia's Graveyard, The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest MutinyRussell Crowe recently picked up the rights for this story and to be honest given Hollywood's relentless search for real life intense drama I kept wondering when that would finally happen This is one of the most fascinating of the least famous 'true story' tales a gruesome book that takes us to the edge of human sanity and makes us realize that under the right circumstances there is no evil that cannot exist On a much much smaller scale this is a uasi holocaustic tale as the essence for the perpetuation of a seemingly inhuman behaviour appears to stem from the same dark place Dash does an incredibly remarkable job researching for this book and telling i

    Read ´ Batavia's Graveyard: The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest Mutiny Batavia's Graveyard, The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest MutinyA very stylish piece of history and yet another book which should be in print but has sadly been left to go out of printThis has had some heavy duty researching done on it to make this work For me there could have been on the moral climate into which the Batavia sailed and even historical context on the foundations and growth of the Dutch East India CompanyHowever as a straight evocation and documentation of a shipwreck and the disaster that can happen when a 'madman' with a committed philosophy which society from that period would have regarded not only as heinous and heretic but blasphemous this is one hell of a story uite rightly curtly de
