Really enjoyed this book, it was really well written and I couldn't put it down. This is the story of a young boy starting out his career as a fisherman, going through the ranks. Before I read this book I knew nothing at all about the Hull fishing trade and the harsh conditions the men had to work in. During trips the boy had various love interests and I found the way the writer alternated between ship life and home life made the book an absolute joy to read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone, I am a thirtysomething female with no knowledge of the sea and I loved it.

Very easily read book. I was particularly interested as my late grandfather had been a trawler skipper sailing out of Hull. The account of life on board a trawler and while on shore leave, painted a vivid picture. I was there with the author! Would recommend this to anyone with an interest in the fishing industry, or for an insight into life within the fishing community in the fifties.
