With regard to the presence of LATIN in ML, it is nice to find something that Roger is the local expert on, but don't make the reader have to likewise be a LATIN expert in order to "get it". Those little Latin samples became "Multitudinus Crapidus" that I could have done without.
It is not "fun" for our friends to consider having the "heads chopped off." Such is cruel, whereas in WD, their need to use sailing skills in order to SAVE THEIR LIVES in the fog and high winds at night is challenging, letting them prove their abilities.
To me, the highlight of delight in ML was the use of Tapping in Morse code when CF was imprisoned below decks, yet was able to communicate with Nancy on the deck.
A similar highlight (using Morse with serious intent) was in WH, when Nancy saw the light flashing "NP" telling her, the D's were at the "North Pole".
