5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read
Am a big fan of this author. His novels are cracking reads, his technical books are very instructive and the accounts of the Volvo races are in a class of their own. This latest book follows in the steps of the latter genre and is up to the standard you expect- it will satisfy both the layman and enthusiast.
Only complaint I have is that it is too short- I'm sure he...

2.0 out of 5 stars Too short
For starters it is too short. It barely gets started drawing you into a story when that ends and we are on to the next one. I found this irritating and a bit of a tease. Second, I am astonished that any author can get published when he does not understand the use of the apostrophe. Even in the description of the book you will see the words "the Smeeton's tried to...

Only complaint I have is that it is too short- I'm sure he has lots more tales like these- maybe they will be in volume 2

4.0 out of 5 stars Best read ashore!, 20 Aug 2013

This review is from: Pressure Falling - Short Stories of Stormy Seas (Kindle Edition)
A compelling little collection of sailing stories, based on storms. The collection makes useful references to more detailed works. I read it on a boat and was a little disturbed!

For starters it is too short. It barely gets started drawing you into a story when that ends and we are on to the next one. I found this irritating and a bit of a tease. Second, I am astonished that any author can get published when he does not understand the use of the apostrophe. Even in the description of the book you will see the words "the Smeeton's tried to round Cape Horn". The Smeetons (Mr. and Mrs. Smeeton) are a couple or a PLURAL if you prefer. This is repeated throughout that chapter, followed up by a reference to different boat's. Again, a plural does not [expletive deleted] require an apostrophe. Grammar and spelling are becoming lost arts and I weep for their loss. Yes, it's a free book. You get what you pay for.

This was great fun to read and I like the author's style: clearly knowledgeable on the subject but witty and easily absorbed. Needs to be expanded into a full series of similar accounts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Collection Of Jems, 7 Jan 2012
This review is from: Pressure Falling - Short Stories of Stormy Seas (Kindle Edition)
I stumbled upon this collection of short stories quite by chance and discovered a string of seductive jems that I simply couldn't put down. Beautifully written, technically spot on, but no where near long enough. I just hope volume 2 is on its way.

I felt the stories were very short. Although some of them were quite interesting, there could have been more stories.

This review is from: Pressure Falling - Short Stories of Stormy Seas (Kindle Edition)
These are mostly great stories. I've marked the book down because of the way it is written - the timeline keeps getting confused between the story and reminiscences.
