Uncharted and Unlimited Laughs
, April 23, 2008
This story reads like a fast, fun, tale with short, easy chapters and an a quick flow in the narrative.
The cast of characters are all individuals who remind me of someone I know, or should have known from my past. They cover the gambit: Sweethearts,to Sticklers,to Slobs to Saints and a cross section of misfits for good measure. All with a lot of hilarity and good humor as we follow their adventures across the Pacific and beyond.
This is a Sea Story with a lot of irony, and I learned a bit about what Merchant Marine Sea Life is like in reading it. There is the usual amount of Sailor's exagerrated telling and explaining of certain events which transpire, but it doesn't matter if you are reading first or second hand blarney...you will find a lot of humor and catch yourself chuckling as you read page after page. Some of the events which the characters encounter are to funny to attempt a description. I savored each chapter and read it during my stationery bike ride at the gym. It took my mind off that monotous task and entertained me, To Boot!.
Ovedrall, I highly recommend this fast and easy story.
To the author I ask, What happened to our Hero "Ted" and the Femme Fatale, "Blaze" in Brazil? Saving the answer for part two of an ongoing Seagoing Saga???....I hope so!
