Yet another stellar chapter from the book, The Ship with Red Hair. This chapter reads as if you are actually in the area with the trainee as actions take place. The way this talente writer describes the minute details of the surroundings is quite impressive -- so much so that I can see the environment. In fact, when I read the words of this magnificently written chapter, I can envision what is going on as if I was there with the trainee, not knowing if his ship would be called next or further down the line. The author has an excellent way of using metaphors as well as comparisons to describe the appearances of the characters, exemplifed by the way the woman who was taking the roll call was described. I am eagerly awaiting the other chapters. If this one is any indication, the next chapters will be even be just as exciting and attention grabbing as the chapters before it. This chapter also has an element of suspense, since something out of the routine is spoken during the roll call. I'm curious what made this ship different from all the rest. Perfect cliff hanger to draw the reader into what is going on. I anticipate your next chapters and thank you for this chapter. Keep up the excellent work!
