This review is from: The Ice Balloon (Kindle Edition)
Great boOk on an otherwise unknown adventurer . As the diaries entries
From the occupants are limited the book is filled out with other well known stories . Which many people who enjoy this type of genre will probably already have read. That said I had to skip through about 30pc

This is a fantastic read with a tour through history from the inception of Islam through its confrontations with crusaderism
Da gama turns up around page 100 having kept the reader engaged to that point . the rest is a monumental tale of epic proportions.
Although writing about da gamas death , the author never chips on with a possible cause
Was it Malaria or anthrax or poison?

A fantastic book that is so much more than the main character
The sheer size of the achivement beggers belief
That aside the customary
Cruelty to the natives is as appalling as the journey
Is sublime

2.0 out of 5 stars not a nice guy, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like the story but the Author does come over as a hypocrite

Goes to a boat party see's kkk and Nazi regalia on the wall and leaves offended

A little later the natives tell him after they have talked to him not to mention their
Meeting late at night , later the supposition is that these natives' then go on to kill and eat missionaries on the island
Next day the police came and he denies all knowledge of seeing or talking to anyone
Hmmm.

Reminds me of Niemollers poem during ww2
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

As the author is a Jew I thought his actions were hypocritical
He was in no danger and could have easily left the islands after reporting the incident.
Later on he spends a small paragraph or so describing a grusome bloody murder he supposedly witnessed

I simply don't believe it .
The mental trauma both he and his wife would have suffered would have been life defining
But then he goes on a mystical fishing trip and spends 3 pages describing every detail

Hmmmm..

4.0 out of 5 stars The beggining of so much, 4 May 2013

A good read the book is purly Based of the voyage itself with a little bit of set up for the Colony they start.
The day to day infighting and decision making bring a period of history to life

Damn Lucky: What Is Righteous and Worth Fighting For... and at What Price?

4.0 out of 5 stars not so lucky, 9 April 2013

A really unusual book but a good read
A principled young man sees injustice to fight for in Uganda

Sad as it was to see his partner and child killed, he himself was a women killer not 24hrs earlier
An unarmed nocombatent killeraat that

Violence begets violence and what goes around usually comes around

After the tragic events with his partner and child the book gets very hazy and existential there was at least another 50 pages in this book but facing his demons was too much and it all ended in a fog of nothingness only he knows what hes talking about
