5.0 out of 5 stars The strangest but greatest book i have ever read!
Now i'm a slow reader - and i mean really slow!. But i managed to tackle this short story book in a weekend because quite simply i couldn't put it down!. Its not the sort of book i usually go for but i saw it in a shop whilst at the seaside and liked the idea of reading some sea related short stories. I can honestly say, i havent enjoyed a book so much for years! it was...

1.0 out of 5 stars Strange but untrue
It says true on cover and then leaps into ghost ships and conjecture. Myths and fantasies of the sea more like. or am i just pedantic.
Lots of strange and true stories out there but not all in here.

5.0 out of 5 stars The strangest but greatest book i have ever read!, 29 Aug 2008
This review is from: Sailing's Strangest Moments: Extraordinary But True Stories From Over Nine Hundred Years of Sailing: Extraordinary But True Tales from Over 900 Years of Sailing (Strangest Series) (Paperback)
Now i'm a slow reader - and i mean really slow!. But i managed to tackle this short story book in a weekend because quite simply i couldn't put it down!. Its not the sort of book i usually go for but i saw it in a shop whilst at the seaside and liked the idea of reading some sea related short stories. I can honestly say, i havent enjoyed a book so much for years! it was fantastic!. The stories have you gripped even if they are only two pages long! i enjoyed every single one. Its funny how it starts off with stories of ghost ships and such like and then as it moves more into the future the stories change to more modern 'strange' themes like boat races and murder!. Some stories werent that strange but on the whole you read each one and go 'mmmmmm..interesting'. I loved it!.

This review is from: Sailing's Strangest Moments: Extraordinary But True Stories From Over Nine Hundred Years of Sailing: Extraordinary But True Tales from Over 900 Years of Sailing (Strangest Series) (Paperback)
Great little book full of short stories (2-3 pages long) about mysteries of the sea. Good for 'dipping in and out of'.

I am not a big reader - but for the times you do want to sit and relax with a book this whole series has been great. These are one page stories of factual events and you can read as much or as little as you want and still get satisfaction. I have finished this book and lent it on to others who loved it too. You dont have to like sailing to read it you just have to enjoy unusal tales

This review is from: Sailing's Strangest Moments: Extraordinary But True Stories From Over Nine Hundred Years of Sailing: Extraordinary But True Tales from Over 900 Years of Sailing (Strangest Series) (Paperback)
The book is a very interesting read and must be taken a little lightheartedly. Many stories are based on true happenings.
