    Difficult to read

    I'm finding this book to be difficult to read because of it's style: many, if not most, proper nouns are not capitalized. Nor are the first words of sentences. Add to that the spelling of the word sea as see,and I'm wondering if this is the author's style or lack of an editor with a spell checker. I"m about a third of the way into it and will read the whole book. It's just very distracting to have this style continue to interrupt continuity. Since a child I have loved books about submarines. Hull Down for Action by Armstrong Sperry got me started when I was in the 7th grade. Edward Beach's Run Silent, Run Deep is my gold standard for comparing submarine books. While A Sailor of Austria is a many notches below it, it's still a good if difficult read.
