I thought "Tales From Fish Camp" was a pleasant read. The book is basically the narrative thoughts of a girl's adventure to an Alaskan fish camp for a few months. I thought the book read like a 'zine. And since I am a big fan of 'zines, I really enjoyed the book.
It only took me about 2 hours to get through the whole thing, but I found the writing and the stories she told very inspiring. It brought back a good deal of good memories of my own adventures and friends that I haven't seen for a long time. I'm glad Danielle Henderson took the time to write her memories down from this interesting time of her life and share them with us.
The stories of a "city girl's experience working in an Alaskan fishing village" (from the front cover) are both humorous and adventurous often at the same time. The author's ability to give me a picture of the fishing village in my head, the descriptive nature of the text is what first pulled me in...and then...there are the stories of the people and work in the fishing village...I felt like I was there while reading this book. My favorite story? Well it was hard to pick...but I would probably say the one about the brown bears! I don't want to spoil much of this gem- because the only think I found at fault with the book was that it was far too short. I will be looking for more from Danielle Henderson- that is for certain!
I was a little disappointed in the brevity of the "stories" and the book in itself.
While I did not expect the writing to be of a serious nature I was a little disappointed in the ability of the author. I believe that this book should have been worked on a little more. Perhaps if she had done so then the "stories" might have contained more detail and the quality of the writing might have been improved.
The layout of the book, as others below have mentioned, leaves much to be desired and questions the seriousness of the author in the creative writing field. Illustrations in place of the blank pages would have been perfered.
This is a very light read that is perfect when one wants something one doesn't have to spend much time thinking about.
I would, instead of buying this book, either borrow from someone or find it in a local bookstore and read it there.

I was greatly disappointed in this book. I had bought it after reading the first review. I guess I should have waited longer for other reviews.
It wasn't funny. Read more
