I want to share my reading experience of Sailing to Purgatory, but let me admit right away that I am no reviewer, and in spite of the most appropriate name I was born with, have to say that I not a writer by trade, and definitely not a sailor. Even so, I want to recommend it!
|On way to Cape Horn ... Denis recommends the story and offers a thumbs up for journalist Brenda Vowden's assessment.|
|... the book made me feel I now know about sailing and about sailing when conditions are good and when they are the exact opposite. - Denis Penn|
Yet who am I to say whether this book is actually good for others or not?
Let me state quite clearly what I'm not and that might encourage aspiring readers to get a copy for themselves.
Mine came through BookDepository.com, by the way, quick, efficient, no postage to pay.
Won't go by sea
However, I really agree with journalist Brenda Vowden's review of Sailing to Purgatory. She said, 'You don't have to be a keen sailor to be utterly captivated from the first chapter of Paul Rodgers’ latest book, Sailing to Purgatory.'
Like her, I'm not a yachtie, yet the book made me feel I now know about sailing and about sailing when conditions are good and when they are the exact opposite.
I like to travel, but not necessarily by sea. I'm thinking of driving around parts of the US this summer, but I won't go there by sea.
I've had a good think about how I want to put the recommendation and it is like this ... well, exactly this:
Reading about this final voyage in Sailing to Purgatory was a roller coaster ride that ended with an extraordinary twist. Well written with extraordinary detail.
