Review by: Kris Mole on Feb. 21, 2011 :
Of all the books I've read that fall into the genre of Humorous Travel - I'm talking Bill Bryson, Tony Hawks, Danny Wallace - this is the one that sits on top of the pile as the one with the most laugh out loud moments. My plan for this evening was to start reading the paperback version again, but after searching the house for over an hour I was still none the wiser as to its location, so Smashwords came to the rescue. Right, enough writing, I got some reading to do.

Forgot to give stars so I'll write more. An english boy learns about life on ships. The writer gives a real human face to your view of the typical hairy merchant sailors and takes you on the trip with them as he grows up.

Great writing and so funny it hurts. I know people say that stuff, but I mean it and I want more. The only bad thing about this book is that it ended.
