This was an okay read for me. It was an easy read but too simple of a story. It was very predictable and the characters were stereotyped. Three Americans set sail for Scotland during World War II in search of the Loch Ness Monster. This in itself seemed implausible to me. There is the typical abusive husband, the wife that finally sees the light and the hero to save the day. On top of this foreseeable story, random facts regarding the war are thrown in willy nilly. Inserting these facts seemed awkward and not relevant to the story at all.
