I found the descriptions of what a diving course entails very interesting - I hadn't realized how much effort and care goes into the teaching of this skill. I also now have a vivid picture of Sharm el Sheik and its many natural wonders, seen from the perspective of a long-term, although not jaded, resident. The mystery of the odd title provides an understated view of what was undoubtedly a dreadful day for the author!
I would recommend this book as a light and entertaining read, well worth the time.
Kean’s vivid details of the sunk WWII SS Thislegorm with its well-preserved rows of motorbikes, cannons and rifles, like ‘in an underwater shopping mall,’ would send any diver jetting off to Sharm El Sheikh. Lesser mortals need to hear from a daughter, or invest in his other book SS Thistlegorm - World War Two's Greatest Shipwreck.
Wait! Is Sharm El Sheikh a safe place to visit after all of Egypt’s political turmoil? Well, once I read his Sharks, Fights and Motorbikes - When it Rains in Egypt, I will know. I can’t wait to.
John shares his journey from IT professional in the UK to dive instructor in Egypt and gives a lot of insight into the issues and compromises one makes. I look forward to more books from him!
