5.0 out of 5 stars Still sailing..., 23 Jun 2004
This review is from: Slow Boats to China (Paperback)
I am still sailing this ship, but what a lovely journey. Gavin Young, who died this spring, isn't the most well known travel writer around, but he is definitely one of the best. What really makes this book interesting as far as I have got, is the part of the trip where he visits Egypt, Akaba, Jedda and across Saudi Arabia to The Emirates. His reflections on the saudis from twenty years back are harrowing taking into account the present situation in countries like Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow Boats to China, 21 Jan 2004
This review is from: Slow Boats to China (Paperback)
This is a delightful book in which our narrator relates his experiences voyaging the hard way to China on a variety of sea vessels.
The spellbinding depiction of the characters he met during this adventure make this book a wonderful read and one that you will find yourself re-reading, discovering different nuances every time you do. Wonderful!
