The Life and Times of Geoff Dyer
, June 10, 2014
This review is from: Another Great Day at Sea: Life Aboard the USS George H.W. Bush (Hardcover)
This is not really a book about life on the USS George H. W. Bush. It is about Geoff Dyer. In this book, he talks about himself and his life....a lot! If I was to glean anything about naval life on an aircraft carrier, it would not be from this book. Most of the book was spent complaining, about food, about not fitting in. about fighting to have his own private space, about noise, about not really understanding. Yes he said some nice things about a few folks on the ship but that is about it. If you are going to write about life on a ship, shut up about yourself and relate only about the people and the ship. Grade F Geoff, you failed.
