The finest book on adventures on sea and disasters on land I have read in a long time, writes an Amazon reader - a 'verified' reader - of Sailing to Purgatory on the giant bookseller's website this week.
|Amazon-ing ... Sailing to Purgatory wins praise on the Amazon website|
Although the Kindle version is offered on Amazon as a free taster for a brief time, the reader bought a paperback, and a 'verified' Amazon purchase.
The reviewer writes,'
'A superb book of seafaring and survival against the odds, while the waves, sharks or the justice system is trying to have you.
'What I appreciated the most is how well written it is, great descriptions of life on these little exotic islands, you can not only see, but smell and hear everything as you are reading.
Beauties and the beasts
'I have favourites like the beauties and the beasts in the Girly Bar, or the passing corpse (not just a horror of it, but the reflections on eternity and our brief presence on this amazing planet).
'Not to mention braving the storms alone, and the huge surprise twist at the end. If you google the title, you will get to the author's blog where you can read a chapter for free!'
Thanks very much to the anonymous reviewer on Amazon - very grateful for the review and for the wonderful mark and very pleased that you enjoyed the book - and thanks to you for visiting the blogs for my adventure book, Sailing to Purgatory.
