A Singular Captain: Magellan's astounding voyage by John Regan

Review by Boris Seaward: This historical novel is a literature monument to Ferdinand Magellan and the men of his expedition who first circumnavigated the Earth about 500 years ago and proved in reality that our planet is a globe. It is also a tribute to Antonio Pigafetta on whose diary the book is based and who in fact was a secretary and scientist of the expedition. The author has done a great job studying, reinterpreting and giving vitality to Pigafetta's records, penetrating into the nuances of the political situation at that time and allotting psychological features to the people closely associated with the preparation and conduct of the expedition as well as to those whom they met along the way or who tried to destroy it.

The fact that the author, professional sailor himself, has repeated the route of the expedition makes this book unique.
