I read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time,and I hoped this book would be as good. I wasn't disappointed. I'm now a confirmed Mark Hadden fan.
After "How to Lose..." I developed a soft spot for this schlub. I'm not sure if his self professed callow life just makes me feel better about myself or what, but I admit to enjoying his over the top self deprecating humor. I couldn't read his books back-to-back, but I'll revisit the smarmy clown next time he writes one.
I'm not sure why I bought this book but I was unexpectedly surprised that it was so enjoyable. Its has a interesting plot and lots of information on sea life which was also something that I found very interesting.
All and all, I'd reccommend this quiet book.
I found this autobiographical account very engrossing and finished it in a couple of listens.
The book is narrated by its author who adds an extra layer of realism to this fascinating story.
I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys the History or Discovery channels.
