This has got to be one of the funniest books I ever read! Brilliant prose, superbly orchestrated as only to be expected of the great Nicholas Monsarrat! But be warned.. a 'sea cruise' as you have experienced or can envisage will never be the same again! In fact your life will never be the same again! I would half expect such a deviously constructed plan of actions from a woman.. but from a man?! Well, it's quite alarming.. an eye-opener to say the least. All I can say is 'beware'! Terrorism comes in strange packages.. and this is the strangest!
